|Festifools is a very informal parade in Ann Arbor, featuring huge hand-made puppets and a variety of people in costume.|
|Miriam, Alice, and I enjoyed watching the parade on a|
glorious sunny afternoon.

|After the parade, we stopped at Iorio's for gelato.|
|Earlier in the day, we had pancakes and waffles for brunch at Common Grill in Chelsea.|

|First thing in the morning, before brunch in Chelsea, we went on a salamander|
walk in Hudson Mills park. First we saw some captive salamanders
and learned a little about their unusual life cycle.
