you can count on it

Every year at about this time in May you can expect a post from me about our family outing to the May Day Parade in Minneapolis. It's my favorite Spring/Summer event in the Twin Cities and there will always be something to share here about it.
don't forget to unplug once in a while, man
This year it was bumped up to the 13th due to the crummy rainy weather we had the weekend before. Last year we were freezing in our winter coats and sipping hot chocolate. This year we were sweating and gulping down water - you just never know what the weather will bring.

Anyway. This is not your ordinary parade. It's produced and presented by In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre and they never fail to amaze. This year's theme was "The End of the World as We Know It". Sounds a little dark, right? There is always an underlying call to stop and think about what's going on around you (and sometimes that can be an eye-opener) but then, along with that comes a celebration of all that is right and beautiful around us. So you always leave feeling good and inspired.
and the sloths gently remind us to slow down
Also, if you like be surrounded by completely HAPPY people this is a great place to be.
