This year, Thanksgiving was a fun one. I went to the Macy’s Day parade with my father, his girlfriend and her son and it was a lot of fun. The sidewalks were full of people and we were behind a line of people. We were by Columbus Circle and it was mobbed. I had to stand on my wheelchair to see the parade. I stood for about half of the parade and then I had to sit. There were police everywhere. I watched streams of marching bands and cheerleaders pass through the city streets. I saw gigantic balloons glide over the people. They were bigger than life. There was little to no wind so that was good for the balloons. One guy was going around selling shirts to remember the parade. They were $5 so I wanted one. Dad went for his wallet and the guy just threw me the shirt and walked on. It was a wonderful experience.
I went home to a wonderful turkey dinner with my family. Grandma made a lot of food and we enjoyed it all. Her brother and girlfriend joined us for dinner so that was nice. I haven’t seen them in a few months so it was nice to see them. Everybody pitched in by making desserts. We had chocolate Russian Tea cakes, two apple pies, hats made from fudge cookies, miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups, orange icing and M&M’s and brownies. Everything was very delicious. It was nice to see everyone.
We had a wonderful day.
