The Three Kings

 Small Car Big Dog told Mama that there was a big parade in Altea on the 5th of January.  So we went.  They said it was called the three kings.  We waited and waited and waited.  All of a sudden there was a huge blow up elephant.  Daddy said it was the biggest inflatable he had ever seen.  Mama said she wasn't so sure.

 And then there was a renesorius.  A really big one.  And a tiger.  And a marching band with some great drumming which made me dance.  In the street.

 There were balloons and girls with balloons and boys with balloons and more balloons.  And men playing pipes and men dressed in tights. 
 And then there was a man walking on a ball in a tall hat.  Mama said she bet she could do that and daddy said 'Rubbish'.

 Just as I was wondering what this had to do with the three kings.  Along they came.  With lots of girls throwing sweets at me.  I collected a big bag full but try as I might, I can't find them anywhere.

 But best of all.  After the tigers and elephants and the man on a ball and the girls throwing sweets was an ambulance.  With the lights flashing.  I couldn't believe my luck.
The best bit
 Mama bought a three kings cake and it had a bean in it and a porcelain king.  I nearly choked on it.
