Memorial Day Goodness...

Hello there friends and family. I hope you all had a great weekend. We certainly had our party shoes on here. So, let's go to the film, shall we?
Shea and Rich marched in the Gettysburg parade. I don't have any pictures of them, because, well, I didn't watch from where my husband told me to- and it pains me to say this, but he was right and I was wrong, and as a result I only have pictures of girls' club watching.
It's mighty hard to take pictures of yourself and the kids when it's just you and the baby's in a backpack. Well, it's hard to take flattering pictures of yourself.
Not so hard to get good pictures of beautiful baby. Ignore the grumpy face. And my eyeball.
I'm willing to bet our parade had way more people in 1863-style dress than most of your parades.
It's not just limited to parade days though. We frequently have women in hoop skirts strolling around. I'm not kidding. It's kind of disconcerting sometimes.
We are north of the Mason-Dixon line. So... I don't know what's up with the Confederate General. Did you have one in your parade?
Atlee totally dug the parade. Even if she didn't get to see Shea.
And afterwards, we went to our friends' house for a yummy BBQ. There was watermelon.

Rich and Shea look all serious, but they had fun. See the dog in the background? His name is Clifford. He had fun, too. He has just eaten an unattended stick of butter. That's a good time for a dog.

Greeley on the go. Nothing special, she's just cute.

See her standing on the picinic basket to get to my knitting? Again, she's cute. We hope you had a good holiday weekend, too!

Your babies are beautiful! Rich is too - hey there handsome! And, I'm not sure how you do it but you still look 25!

Our parade up here - are you wondering if we stood sideline for the 5 minute walk through with no candy, no band, no fun? Nope. We were at our house. Actually, I beat feet since I saw the villagers start to gather at the sides of the road.

On Greeley in the backpack: Grumpy + disgruntled = "disgrumpled"

Just made it up muhself!

A friend sent me pictures of his kids the other day and I told him it gave me a sudden urge to have kids. I might have stories to tell, if I had kids.

(Or an arrest record.) :)

I also wanted to say that the picture of Greeley in the grass looks like a bunny about to SPRING! She's gathered her legs underneath her for power...

Also, she looks VERY happy in her tracksuit in your lap.
