Memorial Day

I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Memorial Day and those that have given their lives for our freedom than a good ol' fashion parade. On Friday afternoon I decided I would try to organize a parade for the neighborhood kids, I wasn't sure if I would be able to get anyone to participate but it turned out great. Word of mouth spread quickly and we had about 30 kids that came with their bikes, wagons, power vehicles, scooters, etc. decorated and ready to walk and ride through our little neighborhood. Afterwards we enjoyed popsicles and visiting with friends and neighbors in the cul de sac. It was such a hit it just may become a tradition for our neighborhood!
