Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Parade 2018

Yesterday I told you about our food and fun on Super Bowl Sunday, click here to read all about it.  Talk about an exciting week--Sunday night Super Bowl winners, Wednesday morning we had an ice storm/snow day and Wednesday night we went to Philly to stay in an Airbnb for the parade.
Mr. Click was away and was meeting us there and we caught a ride with my niece.  The Airbnb was SO cool, I had to take some pics of it!
It was in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philly which has seen a lot of change and growth over the past few years.
This was the master bedroom.
And the master bath.That tile made me swoon!  Anyway, I digress...but isn't it gorge?   That night we walked to a local taqueria called Loco Pez, there were so many restaurants in the area, it was hard to pick but this one seemed to please everyone. Dollar Tacos and margarita pitchers? Yes, please!  Back at the house we met up with the hubs and we all played a few rounds of Most Likely To, Cards Against Humanity and Taboo.
Here's the whole gang bright and early ready to get to the parade route!
We walked to the "El"(subway line) which was only a block away from our place. It was running free all day and it was mobbed. They were controlling the number of people they'd let up to the platform at a time and we still had to wait for a few trains because all of the trains were packed and we were a party of 8.  Everyone was in a great mood and the atmosphere was so festive. There were a few breakout E-A-G-L-E-S cheers.
Once we got to the City Hall area we staked out an area to stand and I got to take some photos.
These sky writers went by a few times and spelled out Philly Philly Dilly Dilly.
That is a person on the very top of the building.
It started to get more and more crowded the closer it got to parade time.  I was ok with not pushing to the front and standing back by our barricade.
The "youngin's" moved up closer and I hoped we'd see them again after the parade. It was WAY too crowded for me. I had Mr. Click take these photos because he's tall and could get a better view of the sea of green!
Most people were very nice and friendly as we were all stuck together in our spots. I've never seen so many people in one place.  The St.Patrick's Day parade was nothing like this!
Here we are in front of City Hall, that lady in the eagle hat behind us was a trip.
Those are humans on the top of that building!
I'm not going to lie, I was happy when it was over and people started dispersing..and we found the kids!  We decided to walk back to our airbnb (it was about 2 1/2 miles away). I was happy to walk after standing in the cold for so long.
Would I do it again, no way! But I'm glad I was there for this history making day to experience it with our family.

What a sweet place you stayed. We used AIRBNB once with a lovely cottage on the beach. WOW....look at the crowd! Oh girl, I would have been smothering too death! I am too claustrophobic I think. LOL! Looks like you all had a great time. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Wow, what a day, a long sweet one with a great memory in the history books despite the craziness, not sure I could do it but I’m sure I would for my team. You sure did it all in style, great Airbnb!

"those are humans on top of that building" LOL .. I loved that Heather. LOL .. I think you were so brave. I just can not do crowds anymore. I think it is due to how short I am 5'1 .. I feel like I can not see. I will have to share about what happened to me at the Christmas Market in Chicago. I gave me sister a wee heart attack.

I had fun tagging along with you from my desk chair. ;-)
What was the Eagle hat lady like? Was she funny. I also enjoy meeting up with folks like that too. Makes the wait fun.

Wow, you have guts. We have had a couple of championship parades with both the San Francisco Giants and the Golden Warriors in these parts and I stay away from them. Too many people. Looks like a great time but I would rather watch it on TV.

I can't mentally go back to the Superbowl, 'ya know I lost my five bucks because I had to pick those darn Pat's after the Eagles handed us our butt in playoffs.
