It's a good, good thing that we miss and remember our Dads today.
Love ya,

The Decorated House

Today always makes me think of my dad, too. And of course how much a miss him.

What a sweeet picture of Mo along with the other ones.

It looks wonderful and very "small townish" in your pictures. Small town is a compliment, too. :)

Wow, this is the perfect Memorial Day post Charlotte!
Thanks for taking so much time to post all the wonderful photos.
I feel like I've been a part of it all.


What lovely photos of your Memorial Day Celebration, I can see everyone, large & small-little ones waving tiny flags- I feel the warm sun on my face, I see pride and joyful reverence in everyone's faces as our flag is held high and goes marching by.

Thank you for sharing your hometown Celebration,Charlotte. I,too, feel like I've been a part of it all.
