Our plans for the holiday weekend really went awry on Sunday. That's when my car broke down while we were out running errands. Luckily, we were at our first stop and were at the shops right outside of our neighborhood. Darn car refused to start! Brad may have let loose a few choice words, and we ended up walking the two blocks back to our house. We had to scramble and rearrange plans pronto.
Memorial Day was still being a fun family day. It started with the big parade in town and we found our friends in the mist of all the crowds. It was fun to sit with one of ER's little friends from play group. ER wore the festive headband she got last year and photographer from our town paper took her picture. She might be in the newspaper for the second time! Our daughter, getting famous already!
My Mom, Dad, and brother Dave all came out to our house since we couldn't drive out to theirs. We're down a car and still have another, but it's old and doesn't get driven much anymore as Brad works five minutes from home. I don't trust it all the way across town. They even brought the BBQ food with them! It's great when Mom still brings over dinner isn't it☺
We didn't do anything too exciting, but ER was happy to have her grandparents over to play in the sand table with and they took her for a ride on the trike they got her last Christmas. Everyone is amazed by how well she's riding it, she's a little speed racer! We also opened the sidewalk chalk for the first time, and that was a HUGE it. She almost went through the whole package.
Toward the end of the afternoon, Grandma Norma arrived and we all enjoyed her birthday cake and ice cream, especially ER as ice cream is her favorite treat. My MIL commented that it was the first time Brad had made her a birthday cake, how fun! Tomorrow, I'll post about the fun day trip we took with Grandma Norma the next day.
