Well we made it through another Easter holiday and I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!  Our "Easter Bunny at home" turned out great and the kids loved getting their picture taken with him. My youngest, Olivia wasn't afraid of him at all.  I knew that having the Easter Bunny come to our home and the neighborhood parade was the perfect idea to put Olivia's fears of the Easter Bunny on hold (at least for this year)!  Don't forget to get your Easter Bunny costume for next year! Memorial Day and the official start of summer is right around the corner.  I can't believe the kids only have a little over a month left of school.  My gosh, where has the time gone!  Memorial Day, formerly known as “Decoration Day” is observed on the last Monday in May.  It is a day of remembering all the U.S. men and women who lost their lives serving our country.  It has become both a national decoration day of family graves and a holiday that opens the summer season.  There are many parades,  backyard barbeques and family get togethers.  Memorial Day is always a big deal around here with a pool party to celebrate the opening of our pool for summer, to welcome the end of the school year, but most importantly it's a time to remember and honor all the service men and women.  Every year we decorate with a "Patriotic" theme of red, white and blue.  We enjoy watching the Memorial Day parade and waving our small American flags with everyone in our community. It's a great time to dress up in a Patriotic costume to show your support for the armed services and the good old U.S. of A. has so many wonderful Patriotic costumes to choose from such as an Uncle Sam costume, Statue of Liberty and some great military costumes for adults and children of all ages.  What better way to say thank you and show your love of our American soldiers!
