Memorial Day!

We had a GREAT Memorial Day!!! We started our our day and went to the Gilroy Memorial Day Parade. It was so much fun! I LOVE parades so i was really excited! We don't have a Memorial Day parade, or at least i don't think we do. If we do, we don't go to it. So this was special and super fun! There were fun floats and Horses and even ELVIS! He was so cool, He was singing on the back of a truck, outfit and everything! At the beginning, they started out by flying planes over our heads and doing special formations and stuff. It reminded me of my dad because at the 4th of July parade, they do that and he loves it! Anyway, after the parade we all went Shopping! WOO! didn't find much, just a skirt but we found Jarom some pretty Handsome shirts! 4 shirts, and a skirt for like $7! It was 50% off at Salvation Army! Sa-weeeet! Then we came back and played badminton and worked up a sweat so we jumped in the pool. By the time i had gotten my swimming suit on, i wasn't as hot as i was before, and i was pretty hesitant to get in the pool because it was FREEEEEEEEEEEZING! But once i got in, it wasn't as bad! The men pulled the trampoline over and we all jumped from the tramp to the pool! SOOOOO FUN!!! We didn't get any pictures of that but it was pretty cool! Jarom was having so much fun flipping and spinning in the air! He was jumping so high, at first i was a little freaked out i'm not gonna lie. Its better than jumping off of the Motor Home roof like he's been asking me if he can do since the first time we went swimming! YIKES! The pool isn't very deep and that thought just freaks me out a little! I don't want a broken husband! So I'm glad he liked the trampoline! Now maybe he'll forget about the Motor Home! Ha Then we had a YUMMY BBQ with Stuffed hamburgers that Jessica made and Corn on the Cob and Baked beans and Salad and Steak and of course, the traditional flag cake made by me (and Jarom)! :) Everything was so yummy and fun!! It was so fun to spend all weekend with Jarom too! NO HOMEWORK or anything! He finished school on Friday (for the semester) I did miss having and traditional Janus Ct. BBQ and festivities, though it was VERY small this year but i'm sure it was just as cool. And jenni, i Missed jenni a lot too! Needless to say, it was a very eventful and fun Memorial day! Thanks everyone for all the fun!!

Isn't he cute?

It looks like he's telling us "No pictures" haha

Jarom put all the flags in Sadie's diaper. gross! Good thing nothing came out on the flags! he he

Elvis!

Awwww how cute!

THe planes. it was really cloudy in the morning but the sun broke through and was a beautiful day!

Food time! I don't think anyone got the memo about the picture but me and Joanna. Or maybe Jarom just took it really fast. Thats probably it.

The Cake! YUM!

Good old game of croquet! Jessica beat everyones booty's!

I thought this was pretty cute. Grandma and Grandpa Just hangin out!

Steph, that all looks so so so good!!!!! I'm so glad that you had fun! Seriously- I missed you so much! I mean, I had a fun day, but all of those pictures make me so jealous because we didn't get to be together! Also, your flag cake looks AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

I promise, we attempted one. But, Anessa wanted to try it with angel food cake, and it exploded in the oven and there was a fire. So, needless to say, the cake didn't work out this year :(.

I missed you alot though. BUT- you and jarom look great as always!! So I'm so happy for you!!!

Love you!! SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!
