Rose Parade 2014: Dreams Come True

I barely uploaded all my pictures from the Rose Parade.   With Vin Scully being the Grand Marshall in 2014, I made sure to get up early to go to the parade.  The last time Vin had been to the parade was in 2008 when the Dodgers had this float:

Remember it?   Vin Scully, Tommy Lasorda, Don Newcombe, Carl Erskine, Nancy Bea, Fernando, Garvey, Nomah, Saito, Eric Karros, James Loney were on the parade.   I remember it so well spending a few days and nights working on the parade.  I was worry that it was not going to be done on time that after spending the day working on it, I went home for dinner and went back to work on it the night before on the 31st.  I went back a few hours later to see it leave the place to the parade.  Afterwards when It was going by on Colorado, I took off running next to it saying hi to the guys on the parade that were on my side of it.  I did it without thinking until I could not go by any further due to the people on the side.   When I stopped I realized I should not have done that.   We had a good laugh about it with the two friends that followed me running along the float.

Here are the pictures of the parade.  This time I stayed put watching all the floats and taking pictures until my battery went dead.
