Thin Mints are my favorite Girl Scout cookie, especially if they come right out of the freezer. They're my husband's favorite, too, but he also likes Tagalongs. We're trying not to eat that stuff anymore, so no Girl Scout cookies in our house this year. We still bought a couple boxes, but rather than eat them ourselves, we donated them back to the troop selling them. My friend, Erin Nelson, is the leader of both her daughters' troops. Sarah, 9, is in Brownie Troop 208, and Emily, 6, is in Daisies Troop 1118.

The parade has become a Baltimore tradition like the Preakness or Opening Day at Camden Yards, with groups as diverse as a Harley motorcycle club and a Brownie troop participating. "What I like is the people on the sidelines who think we're the entertainment when they are really the ones who are fun to watch," said Katie Fox, 20, a dancer with the Kevin Broesler School of Irish Dance.
