Memorial Day 2009

On Monday, we celebrated Memorial Day by relaxing and taking it easy around home. Ryan worked until about nap time (he had a lot of fertilizing to do at the college that is nearly impossible to get done during the week) so the kids and I were on our own for yet another holiday. I planned on taking them to a parade, I just wasn't sure which one until Monday morning when we headed to downtown Holland to watch our local parade. The kids brought the things that great-grandma had given them earlier in the week - an American flag for Kailyn and a pinwheel done in red, white and blue for Will. It was a pretty windy, but gorgeous morning so we put on coats and had a great time!
After the parade we headed to Target to do a little shopping. Some things we needed and others, well not so much. One of these items were little bubble wands with a fan so you just press a button and here comes tons of little bubbles. The kids had used one up at the cottage with my mom, but I don't think Will ever got a turn to try, but boy does he love it!!! He was pretty obsessed with "bubbles" yesterday and it kept them busy most of the afternoon!
While Ryan was making dinner I set up the kids with some toys out on the deck so they didn't need to come in, but we could still know right where they were. We peeked out and there they were working on a potato head together, Will right on the table so that he could reach all the pieces:)All in all, it was a good day. We ended it by taking the kids to play on the new playground at Dunton Park and then to Captain Sundae for some ice cream!!!!
