Little Patriots

Memorial Day is the first "unofficial" day of summer.  It means the school year is coming to a close and summer vacation is right around the corner.  Memorial day was a bit challenging to explain to my Allie girl.  When Allie questioned what Memorial Day was...I replied with..."On Memorial Day we remember to appreciate all the important people in America."  We talked about our county "America" and what our country's flag looks like. 

This weekend Allie was invited to her first ever Memorial Day pool party.  I didn't take any photos at the party, but snapped this one just before we left.



While Todd went off to enjoy his holiday Monday morning on the golf course, my two little patriots and I dressed in our finest red, white and blue and headed to the Novi Memorial Day parade. 


 
Allie and Ayden loved the parade.  Lots of candy was thrown our way.  Allie collected for Ayden too.
 


Austin joined Allie for some parade watching fun.  Check out those cool sparkly star headbands!
 


Ayden watched all the festivities from his Go-Pod (love this thing)!  He was a happy guy.
