Let me start this post off by saying Thank You! Thank you to all the service men and women out there, past and represent that have fought or are fighting the the very freedom that we have at this very moment. Being a Navy brat myself, I know a little of the sacrifice that families make in order to provide us with our freedom. I was lucky and didn't have a parent that was in a combat situation, but that doesn't make my gratitude any less. With out the men and women of our armed forces, I would not be able to sit here and update this blog that you are reading. I know this is a few days late, but it is how I feel. Thanks again and keep up the good work!!!
With that said, we took the kids to the Senoia Memorial Day Celebration while in Georgia. It was HOT and very sunny. We forgot to pack the Trioux's hats, so we had to buy some. I am kinda glad we did, because we found the perfect ones for them. Jack actually wore his most of the day, well until lunch at least. The girls wore theirs the whole time.
As with most large public events, we were the center of attention quite a bit. At one point, when we were crossing the town square headed to lunch, the MC at the stage was going over some announcements and stopped what he was saying and asked over the loudspeaker, "how much to ride in that train?" Needless to say, EVERYONE turned and watched us walk across the street. We had a ton of people ask for pictures and got all the standard questions. We have gotten so used to it, that it really doesn't bother me any more. I have just come to realize that overall most people are just curious and don't really think before they speak.
The Trioux lasted until about 2:00 and then it was nap time. We headed back to the house, which was only a few blocks away. As usual, Addi was the first to pass out in the Choo-Choo.

|What a handsome little boy, aside from the mosquito bite!|
|So cute in her little hat.|
|This was right before we headed back home and she fell asleep.|
|She loves this hat! She can adjust the brim to her liking.|
|I love this expression.|
|She wouldn't let go of this cup and straw. She carried it the rest of the day!|
|Kate-Boo and "PaaPa"|
|Jack and his straw (obsessed)|

|Two out of three passed out! Poor things were worn out!|
