Pool Party

It was a hot, hot day but a wonderful breeze was our friend =)

After a cook out Fahnestock lunch we headed to Ellen's baseball game. Marcy and I stayed under a tree which provided relief from the sun. After that it was to Coach T's home for a pool party and more food! Ellen loves playing in their pool.

Ellen and Emily getting in slowly.
The water was a bit cold but it wasn't long till
 they were splashing and enjoying it!

Elizabeth heading in.

We found a nice spot in the shade to eat.

Ellen with her two best buds...
Nicole and Elizabeth

Ellen is content to float in the shallow end.

Many conversation areas.
I took this picture while Dale and I were sitting on some
 vintage rocking chairs which were under a tree in the lawn.
So cool!

Somehow we eventually convinced Ellen that it was time to go home.
What a fun, full day!


Ellen slept in this morning. First thing out of her mouth when she came downstairs "Is there a parade today?" Yes, there was a Parade in our little town. Her Daddy took her to see the one marching band, the veterans who marched, fire engines, police cars and a few more cars in the short parade. Ellen proudly brought the little flag home that was given to her. She loves a parade no matter how small!

Now Hubby is staining the deck, I'm finishing up some ironing. I have some chicken thawing which I will marinate and have a mixture of ingredients chilling in the frig to make ice cream later. I must sweep some floors then  I guess I will head outside to give the picket fence a coat of white.

Holidays are made for working to the bone...correct??

Happy Memorial Day to all!

Sounds like you had a wonderful day too. Just too bad our paths could not cross this time!

Hi Doris, What a full and busy day! That pool looks very inviting. I'm glad Ellen enjoyed herself. Mmmmm....home made ice cream - sounds delicious to me. Hope you can get some sound rest tonight.
