Photo blog day 290, May 31, 2011

Ahh… Memorial Day. The parade, the fire station open house, the ice cream, the hot sun…. Well, not exactly. This morning we had a thunderstorm and the parade, despite the coordinators best efforts, appeared to be rained out. The tents were up and the chairs were out. But no parade. So we did what any other red-blooded American Family would do. We donned our patriotic t-shirts (ok, just my daughter… but still) and we went for a ride. To the mall. Yes, that’s how we roll around here, we don’t let a little bit of rain ruin our parade (aka plans to spend the day as a family). We shopped and we ate and we came home sated with a new blow up kidde pool in hand.

By the time we’d finished shopping the sun reared it’s head and the day ended the way it should have begun, hot and sunny with just enough humidity to make the pina coladas taste that much sweeter.

Happy Memorial day everyone!

  1. Nice colours, composition and contrast (the three “c”s!). The vignette adds that extra punch.
