Happy Memorial Day!!



We had Mom prepost this because with Dog Dad around we know she'll be too distracted to remember to put up anything. We love long weekends. An extra day with Dad is always a treat.

The morning starts early on Memorial Day. The City has a Memorial Day parade that visits all the war memorials in the area. It isn't like the more formal Labor Day Parade that Mom and Dad go to in the fall. However, even if you aren't there, you can hear it from our house. The bands and the guns are pretty loud. No sleeping in on Memorial Day.

Memorial Day has a special meaning for Mom because her Dad was a Veteran of WWII and Korea. She was always taught to remember that while it was nice to have a long weekend, this day was about more than a day off.

Mom and Dad usually start thinking about the veggie gardens this weekend. They check out the local garden shop and see what he has in for veggie plants and start working on the raised beds. As of this posting, the weather is questionable. However, Mom will still probably talk Dog Dad into checking out the veggie plants. Those go quick if you don't hunt early.

We'll let you know how all of that works out.

We hope you are all enjoying a beautiful Memorial Day with your family and friends.

    1. Been raining on and off all weekend. Mom and Dad fought off a thunderstorm to get almost 3 of the raised beds cleaned of weeds. Then the skies opened up and they had a shower before they got inside.

  5. Happy Memorial Day to you too. We live on an Air Force base so it's interesting to see how different people spend their day. Many choose to remember loved ones by celebrating them today.

  11. Hi Bailey! Thanks for the reminder of why we have a three day weekend:-) It sure is important to remember and honor... Parental Unit's Dad lost his youth to WWII, but was proud to serve and return home safely.

  12. Bailey my Lee's father was in the South Pacific during World War 11. We always remember those that served. My weekend gave us beautiful weather here in Cincinnati, great for planting.
    Thanks for being a friend
