You just gotta…

17 Mar

There are just some things that you gotta do. Like taking part in your town’s major parties and festivals. Whether it be Mardi Gras, New Years, the Rattlesnake Roundup… I mean, if you lived in Pamplona, wouldn’t you want to say that you had run with the bulls at least once?

Well, today I ran with the bulls. Ok, I made my way downtown for the massive St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Not exactly the same thing, but a major adventure with a two-year old, nonetheless. Parking was non-existent so I made my way to another area of town, parked, and waited for the ferry to cross the river… waited for two hours. Two hours. And since strollers and cobblestone streets don’t mix well, we backpacked it the whole day. Z-baby was amazing all day, though — unlike the day before when he threw crayons, a drink, and a knife at the table next to us in a restaurant. And in the end it was all worth it. The parade, the festivities, the people-watching… all made me feel like I just gotta do it again next year.
