One of the perks of covering the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for HLN is getting your loved ones past the barricades for a better-than-front-row view! This is Meteorologist Bob Van Dillen's second season covering the bands and balloons on HLN and a perfect opportunity to find out what some of the kids lining the route are looking forward to seeing.
In this case two of the kids are HIS.
Bob's interview starts out good, with a quick, adorable response from his niece who is looking forward to seeing the 'Hello Kitty' balloon. Then on to his son who provides some smart commentary comparing the temperature at last year's parade to this year. And then it's Bob's 5-year-old daughter, who proves to be the tough part of this softball interview. Which balloon is she looking for? "Ummmmm..." she says, smiling.
See how Bob gets her to answer as only a Jersey-born Dad can!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Morning Express with Robin Meade.
