Memorial Day weekend is kind of a crap-shoot in Northeast Ohio. Some years it's rainy and cold and other years it's sweltering hot-- like this year. Still, I hadn't been to Hudson's Memorial Day parade since probably the summer after my freshmen year of college. In high school, I used to march in the parade with our 200+ member band (I know these kids were miserable in their uniforms).Despite the heat, Cate enjoyed the parade. She got a flag to wave around.
Then she took a seat with Aunt C where she pretty much stayed for the entire parade (or "pu-raid" as Cate pronounces it).
And when it was over (the band is actually first, but I like this parting shot), we headed back to my parents' house for a quick lunch before the car ride back home.
I think this wraps up my posts about our busy weekend in Hudson. Can't believe it only took me a week to get them all in. Happy belated Memorial Day and God Bless our service men and women.
