the parade and the bbq

Just like last year we took the kids to the Manheim Parade. It may not be much but it's something and the kids really enjoy it. David greatly enjoys yelling  "fruck" at every single passing vehicle. Letty greatly enjoys the candy. And I myself get a little emotional seeing the elderly vets walking down the streets to a bit of applause. I really am sentimental underneath it all.

After the parade we had the traditional BBQ at my parent's house. The pictures are lacking in any area except the one that counts. The food. David developed a bit of a fever on Sunday and so he was sort of prickly and therefore just put a big old damper on any photo taking opportunities.

And so ends another MDW. It's officially summer now. So we best start enjoying it before we are busting out the mums and pumpkins. Time moves all too fast as we all know. Oh and that dessert above there? Beth made it. There is almond extract in the icing. Maybe if enough people demand it I can even get her to guest post on here with that lil gem of a recipe. It's good.
