Columbus Day Weekend!

Our little banana

So this weekend was a busy one for the Ross household! On Friday I celebrated my 24th Birthday! Brian and I figured out that it was the 10th birthday that we have celebrated together. That makes us feel old! Rascal took me to Dunkin Donuts for a bagel Friday morning since Brian was scheduled to fly last minute. Then some friends took me out for lunch at my favorite place downtown. Then we went to our friend's assignment night, and then out for dinner! This weekend is Columbus Day weekend and since we live in Columbus, MS they celebrate it unlike most other towns! The first event is a pet parade around downtown. Now we participated last year, Rascal was a pumpkin, but we did not win the costume contest. So this year around August or so, I planned for Rascal to be a banana (original, right?!) and I would try and find a banana t-shirt to match him. Well, we got the costume for him, and one day at K-Mart I happened to find an adult banana costume! This year we were determined to win, so I swallowed my pride and put the banana costume on! Unfortunately, we did not win any of the top 5 prizes. Needless to say, I was a little bitter considering I made a fool of myself, but oh well it was a good time and we all got a good laugh out of it! Rascal had no idea that he didn't win and had fun sniffing the other dogs so I guess to him it was a successful day! After our disappointing loss we hit the road for Birmingham for a day full of shopping, eating, and registering for baby gifts. It was a lot of fun and I was so happy that Brian was home this year to celebrate my birthday with me. We both have Columbus Day off today so we are busy cleaning our apartment and snuggling with Rascal. Here are some pictures from the parade. Hope you enjoy!

Me feeling like a fool but trying to be a good sport!
