We attended Bayport's Memorial Day parade this morning. It was similar to the Rougemont, NC parades the kids are used to: horses, firetrucks, marching bands, and hard bubble gum candy. There were some definite differences though. Bayport's parade actually started right on time. There were no hillbilly wagons and a noticeable lack of rifles. Over all, the kids really enjoyed it.

Graham said goodbye to his best friend Andrew. The moms definitely were more teary than the boys, which was probably for the best.

Our friends Alex, Emily, and Bethany graciously came Wednesday night to help box up the kitchen. We needed the help!
Daddy put Bea and Inga in a wardrobe box. I think it would have been easier if they would have stayed put.

This morning David went outside early to shampoo the barbeque sauce that had splashed all over the seat of his car from the pig roast he helped with this weekend on base. While he was shampooing on one side of the car, Bea was helping with Daddy's car on the other side. Thankfully, she does not follow exactly in the footsteps of her Uncle Adam. Bea's tool of choice: purple sidewalk chalk. Adam's tool of choice: a rock. Bea's canvas: Daddy's crusty old (but faithful) car. Adam's canvas: our father's patrol car. I think today's art was more appreciated than the art of Adam twenty five years ago...
