Belated Memorial Day Post

We started our Memorial Day like we always do... attending the local parade to give honor and thanks to those who have served our country and kept us free.

Memorial Day always makes me feel nostalgic, so I edited these images in a vintage look.






Jeff offered to take this picture so that I could prove I was present.

Our town has the world's shortest parade.  Seriously.  It's over in about four minutes.

But we do have a cool, New England town common.

After the parade, we went home and called Ryan.  He is close to finishing his four years in the military.

He and Chloe have always been very close and I decided to document how she looks when she is talking to him.  She lights up.


This was how Jake showed his displeasure when he didn't get to talk to Ryan. 
Then he looked around to see if anyone noticed that he was pouting.  When he saw a camera lens pointed in his direction, his countenance instantly changed.

 
Ha!

That is so sweet how close Chloe and Ryan still are. And I can't believe it has been almost 4 years that he has been in the military!
