We have to be to the school by 8:20am for the parade, Girlscouts are in it. So we will get some dunkin' donuts, park the car & walk to the school then do the parade thing. 

No I'm not remebering anyone special, I don't know anyone who died while on active duty, or nobody exactly close to me, it's a small town so of course there are some people I'm aware of.

That sounds fun!  When I was a GS leader, my girls LOVED being in parades.

Hanging out relaxing sounds like a GREAT plan to me! Are you going to grill tomorrow?

Hi ladies!

I don't have anyone to remember who died while on active duty, but I do have many family members who served who are now gone, so I'll be remembering them tomorrow, especially my Uncle Bill who passed away on Wednesday.  He served in the Marines.

Other than that, I plan to grill some steaks for dinner tonight but before that I'll take my daughter to get a new bathing suit, though with all the rain we've been getting lately, who knows when she'll get to go to the pool.

Today is a redneck-themed party. Tomorrow is another party with friends. We'll probably hit the pool too and enjoy the parade.

     We were supposed to have some family & friends for a cookout.  My Aunt called to say she had a problem with her foot she can't make it.  So, the cookout picnic is out.  We will be having some company tomorow.  We'll probably just go out & eat somewhere.  

     I'll be just remembering all the soldiers that died & gave their life.  My cousin was 18 yrs. old when he died in the VN War.  It was a very sad moment in our lives.

You're going to be completely partied out!  lol  Have fun at the pool, and don't forget the sunscreen!

I'm so sorry about your cousin, I bet it was a terrible time for your whole family.  

Where do you think you'll go out to eat at?

Doubt it....he won't be home until 7:00 and the girls are still kinda on their school sleep schedule and are ready for bed around 8:30.  LOL...he's off for 5 days starting Tuesday, we'll grill one of those days.
