First we picked my Mom up at my Sister's house.

After the cemetary we went to the Mall and ate lunch.
Then the boys shopped at the Lego Store.
They had never been in one before...
there were too many choices.

Then we dropped my Mom off and went home to relax.

Going to the parade, the cemetery, and then out to lunch has become a tradition for our family.
I have been going to this parade since I was a little girl.
I went to the parade, with friends, while Mom went to the hospital the day my Dad died.
I was 14.
I have years and years of pictures of our family at this parade.
It is a great tradition.

I am linking this post to Memorial Day Weekend link up at 5 minutes for Mom
