First we picked my Mom up at my Sister's house.
First event of the day
Memorial Day Parade in Wayne, PA
the town I grew up in.
Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge.
That's the Life!!!
Love these horses!
The Parade ends.
Then we go over to the grocery store and buy flowers.
Then over to the Cemetary
looking at Dad's grave
in the patriotic skirts they made
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
