Memorial Day

There's nothing quite like a not-too-hot/not-too-cool day in May with a clear blue sky, a lake, a perfect breeze, and family.

 Especially when you have a little red-headed, curly-haired grandbaby/nephew/cousin visiting…

And three of your four brothers and your Dad play bocce and manage not to hit that red-headed baby or anyone else…

And there's a mama duck and one little baby just waiting for some leftover hot dog buns…
 And cousins are there to entertain that baby and follow him all over the park, catering to his every whim 'cause he is the 10th grandbaby, after all …

And your Mom, the sweetest of all, feeds tiny bits of watermelon to that curly, red-haired grandson for hers until he gets tired of those tiny bits and chomps down on a slice all his own.

It's a good day in May when there's watermelon and people who have been here for nearly nine decades and people who have just begun.

  1. We used to have family reunions each year and they were enjoyable. Sadly, after time not enough of us left to have one. Enjoy yours while you can.

  2. It is wonderful to have these family affairs, to bond, renew ties, know each other better and yes to eat and laugh. What a wonderful day. I know these traditions will pass on everyone, as that little red-head will surely remember.

  3. I can see everybody enjoyed that day. Lovely smiles on their faces. :)
