Memorial Day.

Ok so, remember how I told you I was going to a BBQ at Grandma's? Well, I did and it was pawesome and I got some bratwurst, and some of a hamburger and lots of Marrow Bones because I know how to open the cabinet where my g-ma keeps them and she thinks it's cute so I get lots. And the second best part was when my dad put the hammock out and I got to lay around with him. Here are some pics. Finally, new pics!

In this picture, my dad is reading and I am looking scholarly just by being there. (Hey Grandpa Bill, thanks for the hammock!)

I'm practicing looking pensive here - studying nature and the rebirth of spring and all that crap.

Handsome is the name of this one.

I'm going for distinuished here because I'm getting a lot of gray hairs so I will occasionally act my age for like a second or two.


OMD! And I totes forgot the whole point of Memorial Day, but my mom didn't. She took some time to remember her Grandma Nancy who was a truck mechanic in WWII, but she was trained as a cryptographer! How cool is that? She was a native NYC gal and the shock of 9/11 made her really sick(er), and she died shortly afterward. My mom misses her very much.

What a handsome hammock that is. I need one in my yard. But just for me to sit in - nobody else.

Love ya lots,

Hey Ike,
Sounds like you had a kick ass Memorial Day! And my Mama says no matter how old we're getting, we NEVER have to act our age!
