Sunday afternoon, my girlfriend and I took our kids (5 of 'em under the age of 3!!) to the Krewe of Barkus in downtown McKinney. It is a dog parade and canine costume contest. So much fun!
While Kate and her friend caught lots of beads and candy:
The babies were clearly enthralled with the whole event:
How cute are the twins?? Seriously. Looks like Sara Paige will have her choice of handsome men.
Anyway, here were a few of my favorite doggy costumes (the Golden Girls, a bumble bee, a lobster, and a leather clad retriever):
At one point, the kids decided to enter the middle of the parade to grab goodies:
It was a gorgeous afternoon and after the parade, my girlfriend and I squeezed in a "mommy conference" (read: wine) on a terrace before the kids lost it.
Check out how many beads they got:
