Memorial Day has come and gone. The kids always look forward to the parade. Not so much out of patriotism I’m afraid… the candy is a big factor. This year it was very hot and humid. It always seems to be on Memorial Day doesn’t it? So we spent the afternoon in our kiddie pool, and didn’t do a stitch of work! We found out that the dear old man across the street actually fought in Normandy in WWII. After dinner, the kids brought over cards they made, thanking him for his service to our country. In a few years there will no longer be any veteran living who fought in that terrible war.
Here’s a few pictures of Memorial Day in years past:
And a year later:
And this years new parade watcher:
Proof for my kids that I actually DID go in the pool with them:
The weekend was extra fun because Auntie “Bean” was down 🙂
I was glad Annika loved the water! It helped that the water was 84F.
Hope you Americans had a wonderful weekend, and were able to thank a veteran for their service.
