Riding in the Cottonwood Christmas Parade 2009.
The theme was Lasting Traditions.
Ashley wore an 1800's period dress (except the shoes!) and rode sidesaddle the entire parade.
It was so cold that day that by the time she reached the end of the parade, she couldn't move her hands to work her phone. When she finally made it back to the truck she was absolutely freezing.
(I had seen her ride in enough parades for the year...I sat in my heated truck, read a book, and waited for the phone call to go pick her up at the end of the parade.)
