Dream Cruise Week

Here are the photos from the Woodward Dream Cruise. We went out on Wednesday night before the cruise to check out the cars that gather in the Kroger parking lot. It is really crazy all week long here. We even ran into our neighbors Jim & Sharon, so we walked around with them for a while.

After checking out some cars we went to sit on the grass off Woodward in front of Madelyn's word right now - McDonald's. (She is so funny, she doesn't like to food too much just likes the playgrounds so she points them out when ever we pass one) Brendan & Madelyn were being cute while I took photos so here are a couple of them too.

Finally on Friday before Dream Cruise Berkley has the official kick off parade down 12 Mile. We walk down to the end of our street sit & watch the parade every year with Jim & Sharon. This is the best part, there are tons of cops from the local area who come over to help the Berkley Public Safety officers. We had one with a Ranger-type vehicle who hand cuffed both kids.

After the parade we walk to 'downtown' to see a street concert & eat some treats. This year they had about 7 different food trailers, anything from smoked pork & ribs to cotton candy. I did get the kids a cotton candy and by the time I had my elephant ear, theirs was gone.
Of course we run into tons of people that we know and it takes a while to walk back home after the oh so healthy snacks. And of course the kids had a blast.
