Macy’s 2018 Thanksgiving Day Parade New Balloons Unveiled At Balloonfest!

Macy’s 2018 Thanksgiving Day Parade New Balloons Unveiled At Balloonfest!

Every year as soon as the calendar turns over to November there is a big discussion in our house that surrounds Thanksgiving and our plans. Of course our plans always include watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s become a complete Thanksgiving Day staple that the family loves. With each year we wonder which of our favorite balloons will be back and what new additions will be made for that year. 

This year our family was pretty excited to get a behind the scenes up close look at the newest additions to this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade at Balloonfest! We arrived at the crack of dawn to see some these amazing gigantic beasts come to life right in front of our eyes. As the air was pumped each one rose from the ground as the many handlers were there to keep the balloons secure.  Our first balloon was the most adorable, “Little Cloud” FriendsWithYou. Well, it really actually wasn’t that little, but in comparison to all the others it was definitely a mini. This floater stands for light, tranquility and unconditional love. 

The three stars of Netflix’s newest film, “The Christmas Chronicles”, were all too happy to come to life and sway back and forth with their grandness. Manning balloons as a balloon handler is absolutely no joke. They handlers were given direction after direction to keep those blown up beauties exactly where they were supposed to be. We can’t wait to wave hello to Fleck, Bjorn, and JoJo as they debut in this year’s parade. The Christmas Chronicles elves are the first Netflix balloons to be featured in the live parade. 

We were delighted to see the three newest additions to the Sinclair Dinos as they made their way back and forth, giving us a wave as they did. The three newborn Baby Dinos from Sinclair Oil Corporation were ready for their first parade for sure. Just like the Sinclair Dino balloon, the Baby Dinos balloonicles appear in life-size form.  Personally, I was fascinated to see the models of what the balloons were supposed to look like when they were finished. Complete perfection!

When it comes to bowling our family is all about the sport. We love how “Go Bowling” will be strutting its stuff on the streets of NYC! This new group of balloonicles will consist of two bowling shoes and six bowling pins all being chased along by a determined bowling ball. I cannot wait to see how this plays out! How about you? These sixteen feet bowling pins and twelve foot diameter bowling ball are sure to be a hit or should we say a strike?

Now I may have just saved my absolute favorite for last. Maybe because I have been a boymom forever that I have seen my share of Dragon Ball for years and years. This amazingly gigantic balloon on Goku clocks in at seventy feet long, thirty six feet wide, and fifty six feet tall. That is one big balloon! The Goku balloon is depicted in his new Super Saiyan blue form which completely represents a new era of the Dragon Ball franchise.

As you can see, our morning spent amongst the newest additions to this year’s 92 nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was a morning we will remember for many moons to come. In the meantime we will be scouting out a great place to set up the family to watch this year’s parade! Let the countdown to Thanksgiving begin as we head toward one of my favorite holidays of the year. What could be better than being surrounded by family and friends and sharing the magic of this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!  I can’t wait to hear what you think about the newest balloons and which one is your new favorite as well as your old favorite. Have a beautiful Thanksgiving! Please don’t forget to tune in on Thanksgiving morning to see the parade, or if you are lucky enough to be in the NYC area- see you on the streets!

Happy Birthday At American Girl Cafe NYC Celebration!

Happy Birthday! Emily Turns Twelve- Let’s Celebrate At American Girl Cafe Rockefeller Center, NYC

Sometimes life is just surreal. It feels like that to me every time a birthday rolls around. I had to reach deep into my soul last week and just feel so grateful for the gift of my children. Emily is my last one, my last baby, my little surprise. Now she is turning twelve. It’s hard to believe. Where did the past twelve years go? Next year she will be a teenager and we all know there is no turning back from there. So, I took a deep breath and just enjoyed every minute of Emm’s birthday right along with her. Of course I could not help but look at her sitting there all beautiful and so grown up and think back to her first celebration at American Girl Cafe when she turned THREE, yes three years old. It seems that she has loved American Girl forever but I know it won’t last forever. I know that day is coming so very soon. It kind of has for the most part. But if she wants to drag out her favorite American Girl dolls and bring them to her party, who am I to stop her?

By the way Emmy(the Bitty Baby) was her first Bitty Baby and Emily was her first American Girl doll that was given to her by her Grandma at my baby shower before she was even born. They have been along for the ride this entire time. They have been at every party and shared so many cups of tea at our tea parties over the years that I have lost count. They have been part of the memories in the making and I think I love them as much as Emm does.

This was our first year celebrating Emily’s birthday at the American Girl’s Cafe new location in Rockefeller Center. Last year we skipped because they had just opened and honestly we were not ready to make the switch. The new location is quite different than the old one on 5th Avenue. But this year we celebrated and although the new cafe is not as grand or fancy it still was beautiful. It still worked. It still was just absolutely perfect. And I still got a tears in my eyes as Emm took a breath to blow out the candles. How did I ever get so lucky? How do I deserve this? I’m not really sure, but I am really grateful.

As I sat there I questioned if she was too old to be there. I got a sign a big sign. At the table for two next to us they seated a Mom and her eighteen year old daughter and I knew we were fine. I looked around and saw other children in the room much older than twelve. And my tug of war with reality ended right there. So we ate heart shaped pancakes for breakfast and sipped on pink lemonade and shared happy stories about everything you think of and we just sat frozen in that moment of happiness. After all, these are the moments we live for, right? It’s not the big events we are invited to or the new cars or vacations, it’s all about when you look across the table and see your child happy, smiling and just living in the moment. I hope I never forget that day or that moment. I hope I remember it forever…and I hope Emm remembers it, too and remembers just how much I love her.

Memory Lane….
