Hello, Spring. Fancy A Parade?

A few weeks ago, we celebrated the official start of Spring.  It hasn't been until the last couple of days that we have really started to feel it, though.  As if overnight, suddenly the air has warmed up, the flowers are peeking out from the ground and the birdsongs have been delightfully relentless.  We have also been treated to a couple of thunderstorms which, by the way, I adore.

I was in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for the first day of Spring and if there is one thing this town is good at, it is making a celebration out of everything and anything.  So get ready for cute overload.  All the kids in town dress-up with all their classmates as signs of Spring (you'll see) and host a parade around the center of town.  I mean, come on.  (Tree dude below was seriously struggling to walk which double his cute factor, btw.)

Icing on the cake? All these adorable little munchkins hold hands with each other.  Aughhhhhhh.  CUUUUUUTE.  For all the little ones who aren't old enough to participate in the parade itself, parents dress them up in their own little costumes (which involve some pretty serious onesies) to watch the parade they are all looking forward to actually being in one day.

Happy Spring, everyone!
