The Butterfly Queens. Great capes!

And Last… Actually this was one of the first pics of the parade, but I saved it for last. Check out the hunk on the right.  I asked him to marry me and he said “Maybe” and threw me some engagement beads.  When I find him again, I will bring him home to look at and KMY and KQ and anybody else can fight over him.

That’s about it for the SQP weekend except for my hat from the Big A** Hat Luncheon.  It now becomes my Easter bonnet so you will hear more about it later.
