Memorial Day Weekend
We enjoyed a wonderful family weekend! It was productive and fun filled! We went to the local Memorial Day parade. We had great discussions with Ethan about freedom and what Memorial Day represents. He was so excited to get a flag to wave at the parade.........and of course the candy:)
Ellia loved waving at the Veterans and anyone in the parade:) She brought her purse, of course, and hung it around her neck to easily place her candy in there.
The kids and I picked some peonies and hosta leaves from my flower beds. I love fresh flowers!! I've had many vases of fresh dandelions and grass from the kids too.
I've been on a smoothie kick for my evening "ice cream" snack. I put in 2 bananas, a large spoon of almond butter, a shake of cacao chips, a squirt of agave, some ice, and water. I blend it all up and we all enjoy it! I sort of want to be selfish my special treat but I am glad that my family enjoys it:)
We still do not have a name for this coming baby. We'd like a somewhat unique name that does not have a crazy meaning like "Elephant Dung." So, please share any ideas!
