Happy Memorial Day

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day!  We spent ours at the local Memorial Day Parade, which is a big deal around here, let me tell you.  We walked down just in time to catch the beginning of the parade and stayed for every last bit, catching as much candy as we possibly could (move out of the way, Zosia and Lily are serious about gathering candy).  Hugo pretty much just rolled around on the grass and laughed the whole time, oblivious to the parade that was going on in front of our eyes.

But the parade was pretty great.  Our favorites included the men with the funny hats who had fast little cars (I believe they were the shriners), the circus club, and all of the cultural dance groups.  What fun!  But definitely the best part is walking around and bumping into all the people you know afterwards. It was such a treat to see so many friends!

And I had to include the blueberry cobbler I made on Saturday, which ended up being sooo delicious (below, with a bit of cream on top).  Long weekends are the best, and now we are officially in the summer season.  I can't wait.

I spent every Memorial Day growing up watching the FC Memorial Day parade. One year my sisters and I were even in it...big deal! So sweet to see these pics of it.

Oh, how fun! That IS a big deal: I can only imagine it must have been so special. :-)

And by the way, bonus points for recognizing the parade!
