mmm-yoso!!! is not only a food blog, but also a blog about events surrounding food adventures. Kirk and Ed (from Yuma) are both busy enjoying their adventures and Cathy is sharing her latest adventure, which involve a meal.
Yes, it's that time already. The Tournament of Roses has planned its January 1, 2014 Parade (with a theme of "Dreams Come True") and invited participants, who designed floats around that theme for the Parade and the renderings have come to life at the Phoenix Decorating Company's Rose Palace and seven floats had their first of three road tests early this morning.
When we arrived on Raymond Street around 7 a.m., the seven floats were lined up and inspectors were at each one, checking various hydraulics, mechanics and other safety items.
The City of Alhambra's 'Monster Truck' is taking on its basic shape.
The Rotary International 2014 parade float looks like it will end up being colorful as well as playful. Lollipops???
The Kiwanis 2014 float, "Bridging Children's Dreams" has taken shape. The tree is in the position it needs to be in to be able to fit under street and signal lights on the parade route. The dove flying from the tip of the tree looks like it will be very colorful.
This is the rebar construction of the Shriners Hospitals for Children. Right now, it looks like a teddy bear wearing a cape, pushing off from a a heart at the base of his feet.
The Lutheran Hour Ministries float, with a theme of "Jesus Welcomes All" has this rendition on the internet. It looks like the fauna surrounding the church building will be quite large and colorful. The closer, more colorful float in the above photo is the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs entry. This view is the side the cameras won't show on television during the parade and it still is very colorful and detailed.
The Mister and I walked over the Metro tracks and one block North on Arroyo to a favorite 24 hour walk up and eat outdoors restaurant.
You see, when we were awake and walking out of the house at 5 a.m., two of our dogs thought we were going for a walk...so we put them in the car and brought them on this road trip.
I hope all of you are having a nice weekend!
