After a year of missing all American holidays I was unusually excited for Memorial Day. My family and I were having an impromptu cook out with all the usual fixins of potato salad, deviled eggs, baked beans, corn on the cob, hamburgers, hotdogs and my special dessert of strawberry shortcake.
After lunch, my friend Kirby and I went outside to wash our black lab Duke who was pretty smelly after going into the pond. He wasn't too happy that we were waisting precious swimming time to clean him and whined the whole time. I swear I have never met a dog that is a bigger baby than Duke.
Overall, it was a pretty successful Memorial Day. I even have some plans for the 4th of July to make it a big event! Did anyone else do anything fun for Memorial Day? What about plans for the 4th? I know it's more than a month away, but I'm already excited! Any excuse to wear red white and blue and eat picnic food makes for a great day!
