The parade this year started off with the military men, and it took all of three seconds for people to stand and clap as they walked and drove by. It was loud, and it was awesome! I was very happy to live here in this town when they did that...it was very heartfelt, very touching, and very well deserved.

I'm tellin' ya, the kid had the spirit. :)
The rest of the day was spent having fun. There was a bounce house obstacle course, face painting, balloons, etc. Later in the day hubby cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill and I made the sides. He also told me he saw a survey online that noted 65% of the gazillion respondents said they do not grill out on Memorial Day. I was surprised, I thought it would be way more who said yes. I'm glad we were in the minority for that one, I think Memorial Day (if the weather is nice) is the perfect excuse to break out the BBQ.
Back to the grindstone today, but a big hurrah for long, relaxing, holiday weekends!
