Mavs Championship Parade

Last Thursday, the Dallas Mavericks had their Championship parade. A friend of ours was in Houston when the Rockets had their parade and highly recommended Michael and I to go when the Mavs won the finals. The Mavs DID win and we were really hoping that the parade would fall on a day we could go. And it did! (obviously...or I wouldn't be posting) My parents came to watch the girls and Michael and I jumped on a DART rail to head to the American Airlines Center.

There was a bit of a line at our starting station, but we got on a train and had seats. We were rolling along just fine, but then we stopped. A train ahead of us had a door malfunction and its passengers overloaded into the trains behind it, including ours. The parade had already started and we were stuck. I was a little worried we wouldn't see anything, but I was having fun anyway with the people of Dallas celebrating the Mavs.

We get to the AAC and we just have enough room to get off the train. Thousands of people are crowded around and we just start squeezing our way forward. We couldn't see much, but I got some pics from my phone when I held it high. Oh, and I recorded, or so I thought, when Dirk, Kidd, and Terry came around. Yeah...I messed up somehow, so you won't see them. :(
