It's Memorial Day! We started the day by going to the parade, which my niece was marching in this year. Her band - the only band, actually - was one of the highlights. (Well, for me. The candy was the highlight for the kids, i think.) It was a really long parade; like, an hour and a half long. But it's really the only parade we go to most years, and the kids really like it, so it's worth it.
Katrina went to her cousin's house for the rest of the morning until afternoon, and came home EXHAUSTED. She had a sleepover on Saturday night, so she was already behind on sleep, and i think that adding hours of swimming to sleep deprivation were just too much for her. She took a nap for over an hour after she came home.
Zane and Juanito took a bike ride downtown (where they got caught in a downpour). Houston read his book about mythology while i took a nap, and then he and i played a rousing game of Phase 10. (Which i won. Barely.)
And then Beth came over and we grilled hamburgers and made tater tots and had fruit and sat at the picnic table on the back porch and just enjoyed the beautiful weather. The rain had gone by then, and it was just lovely to sit outside and soak up the springtime weather. Yay!
