Memorial Day Weekend

The unofficial start of summer!

We finally had some warm, border line hot weather yesterday!

You wouldn't know it from the pictures because it was so overcast, but believe me it was HUMID with temps about 85*! I loved it!

Chyann was in our local Memorial Day parade yesterday. There sure weren't very many folks watching the parade and attending the cemetery service this year.

Usually the streets are lined up with folks.

Middle school band. Chyann was able to march without her crutch from the school to the cemetery. She generally plays the snare drum, but the band teacher figured that would be too much for her, so he had her play the symbols. She said they were crazy heavy by the time they got to the cemetery.

At rest waiting for their turn to play.

She was so hot and tired all she wanted to do was lie down, but like the trooper she is she toughed it out.

Got Colton mowing when we got home. Speaking of mowing, look at that hair cut the kid has got! He finally got it all mowed off! Looks pretty good too.

I'm going to have to ask how it felt to see the High School band playing without him. I wonder if he wishes he was playing too.

We had a power outage yesterday for about five hours as well. Chyann and Caden passed the time riding go carts.

and tearing up the yard!

Power still out come dinner time and it was windy as hell, so we moved the BBQ around to the front of the house to cook up some dinner. Ol' Casper had to come see what we were up to.

Yes, we actually sit on those crappy chairs. One of these days I'll get new cushions, but until then they will work.

The chairs look fine to me.
I've never had a horse stop by while I was just lounging.

I'm struggling with knee issues. Between the shoulder surgery and two knee surgeries, I have decided I don't want that anymore.

What happened to your daughter's knee?

Sounds like a nice weekend. How great that Chyann was able to march the whole way!

Hi Ami! Chyann had her right leg lengthened 40 mm back in Feb and is still trying to recover from that.
