Mommy makes such a big deal out of Memorial Day! It was a classic afternoon, filled with sunshine and memories - though it didn't look like that in the morning. We've had showers all day on and off, but the clouds gave way for just a few hours to dry things out - and allow us to grill, and eat outside on the deck. Ye-Ye and Nana came over, all dressed up for the day - and everything was just perfect.
Mommy had a wonderful meal prepared for us. She made her patriotic jello, and of course there were all the usual items you need to have for an outdoor Memorial Day feast: there was corn on the cob, hamburgers, hot dogs (Daddy grilled those), potato salad, macaroni salad, pickles, and even pecan pie. It was a lot of food!
There was even watermelon! We decorated the house with our patriotic decor. We even put up a Mr. Potato Head that looked like the Statue of Liberty (Daddy and Madison had been playing with Mr. Potato Head for a few hours this afternoon). We plugged in some patriotic music and enjoyed a great afternoon out.
You can see here that Madison was enjoying putting fake pepperoni pieces in Ye-Ye's eyes! Madison put on her apron and was preparing her pizza in the oven in her playroom. She came out with oven mits on and delivered a fresh pizza to us, and even though we were full, we made sure to have room for the new delicious pizza.
Ye-Ye and Nana got to play with Madison some more this afternoon, as Mommy and Daddy had a date night. We went to go see "The Prince of Persia," which was a pretty decent popcorn flick. When we came home to Madison, everyone was tired. In fact, Daddy is just about ready to go to bed right now.
Happy Memorial Day!
