Exile #2 stayed home with E5N1 (who was sick during the night but fine this morning) while I took the girls to see the Memorial Day parade. This is a great community event - and somehow I don't feel too much like a foreigner despite the patriotism on display.
The weather finally remembered that it was Memorial Day weekend - it was pretty much perfect for sitting out.
As ever, I have no difficulties clapping enthusiastically for all the firefighters.
Exile #4 - as is her habit - came over quite American.
While her sister was apparently gobsmacked by the fire trucks!
