James checking out the fountains
The concert was a cover band called Kokomotion, and they played music that made me want to get up and dance, but the other concert-goers didn't seem to share my enthusiasm. I danced a little anyway.
Miranda investigating the crowds at the concert
We were really starting to pushing up against James's bedtime (he goes to bed early than Miranda because he refuses to sleep in) but we figured, oh it's a holiday, let's get the boy some ice cream!
Miranda eating ice cream with no sprinkles, like a little savage.Even though Miranda didn't even go to bed much later than her regular time, she rewarded us by getting up much earlier than usual. James got up at about his usual time, but grumpier. You're welcome for the fun, kids!
Sunday we also grilled out, while the kids did the best they could to injure themselves on the one dangerous spot in the patio.
We like to live dangerously!
The actual Monday of Memorial Day was low key except that we all got to chat for a long time with Uncle Andrew who is settling in to his new place in Japan.
Snuggling with Skype.
Happy summer weather, everyone!
