Memorial Day Parade

Here is the gang at the parade on Monday. We had perfect weather over the long weekend. Daddy and Danny were complaining about it being too hot and then I reminded them how cold we were in November at the Veteran's Day parade--Mommy LOVES warmth:) Of course, Daddy worked Veteran's Day and could not appreciate what Mommy was saying;) Prior to the start of the parade, we walked to a Dunkin' Donuts for coffee for Mommy and Daddy and when Daddy found out they have kid coolattas(have no idea how to spell), he splurged and got them each one. We usually have the kids share but they each got there own:) When we got the flags for the little ones, they were told to make sure they wave them when the soldiers and the bands went by. JiaLi took that job very seriously and waved her flag for all who were in the parade. And here is the group that Dan is in. It's the Middle School Marching Band--so stinkin' cute. We are so lucky to have such a great program--the kids get their lessons right at school each day. The car ride home was not long enough for JiaLi to fall asleep but as you can see she was close;)

What a great day for a parade...love that Daddy got them all their own and that pic of Danny is great (I was wondering where he was in the group shot!)

Frame that last pic of JiaLi or use if for your 4th of July card (I know you will send one LOL)
