Memorial Day Parade

Happy Memorial day everyone. Big thanks to all those who are currently in the military, were in the military in the past, and especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We really appreciate you. God Bless.

As usual, we went to the Memorial Day parade today. It is always yucky out for this parade, don't know why, but it is! This was actually a little better than usual in the fact it didn't rain or sleet on us this year ( whew!) but it was still cold and windy and overcast. This is the view of all the half frozen people lined up across the street from where we were sitting. It looked to me like the epitome of one of our Memorial Day parades (don't forget your blanket!).

Both the kids were in the parade againt this year...Joe with his ROTC group and Linds with the Danceline.


Suprisingly, Linds finished getting ready for the parade first and was able to spend a little quality time with Daisy before she left.
Joe was close behind...but he had an excuse, he had to press those dress blues and shine up those shoes!

He's looking handsome as they march along...he's holding the blue ROTC flag.

And...here comes the girls! Sadly, most of my pics turned out too blurry. except this lovely shot! (yes, that is called sarcasm!) ...Linds is the one on the far side with her face half covered with a pom pom! LOL

A good day, we all came home full of fresh air and exercise...grilled up some steaks to go with our nice big salad and enjoyed our family--all thanks to those wonderful men and women who fight for our freedom.

Oh, don't forget to sign up for the giveaway in the post below this one :o) Drawing to be held on Friday. (May 29)

Oh, what sweet photos! I can't imagine a cold Memorial Day, but it looks like you had a great time. I always find it a bittersweet celebration, but so important.

Looks like despite the weather you all had a great time. I just love small town parades.

Have a fantastic day!

Now this sounds like fun. We just grilled out with the folks and played with their new puppy. Quiet but always memorable time. Lovely family; and Daisy looks very happy with Linds.
Always blessed,
