Memorial Day

Memorial Day in our town pulls in a nice crowd.

Main street has quite a few folks gathered on both sides to
see the Veterans and the bands come by.

This will be his last Memorial Day parade.

Her first Memorial Day parade.
I didn't get a good picture of the middle school band marching
because they went so fast and my camera was being goofy,
but did catch her at the cemetery.

Instead of a War Veteran speaking a seventh grader
and an eighth grader read essays they had written about
what Memorial Day means to them.
I enjoyed hearing what they had to say.
It gave me another perspective on what this day
means to different people.

When we got home we attacked the potatoes.
Last night we had a nice thunder storm with steady
rain and you could practically hear my garden gulping
it in, so today the weeds came right out.

In the top half are right to left
tomato, peppers and onions.
Then in the bottom half are the spuds.

No pictures of the small garden yet as the seeds
were just planted last Tuesday.

The backyard all mowed.

Krissy and I enjoying a glass of wine while the kids splash us.

A very nice day.

I think it's wonderful that your kids were part of the Memorial Day parade. There are so many schools out there that are cutting out such programs and participation; which in my opinion is a sad thing. That pool sure looks inviting! Also, the garden looks great. I know what you mean about practically hearing it gulp in the moisture. We sure do need it.

Your garden looks great! I wonder if your youngest will also join the marching band?
