Happy Memorial Day

We are having just the greatest weekend......we had *nothing* planned, but have been busy non-stop.....in a carefree, relaxed way.

Today was the Califon Memorial Day Parade.....Otto marched with his BoyScout Pack and had the honor of holding the American Flag. It is also Otto's 10th Birthday!!!!

Emma Sage and I went and watched the parade.......she was at first afraid of the sirens and loud noises from the FireTrucks and Resue vehicles....but her flag waving and saying 'HELLO' to everyone that passed got the best of her.

Right now the children are swimming in the pool....I'm running to the store, we have family coming for Otto's Birthday Celebration....

Oh, and I'm doing laundry and gardening in-between! lol!

In honor of all those that have fought and given their life in the name of Freedom, please take a moment from your day for a minute of silence at 3:00PM.

Peace on Earth!!!
