Amusement Park Fun

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

It is often celebrated with outdoor barbecues, picnics, family get-togethers and doing fun things out of doors, often heralding the beginning of summer. Xena and Lucy have joined in the blogville BBQ at the amusement park today, and have their dessert already picked out. Let’s hope they don’t get upset tummies, since they definitely don’t get this kinda stuff at home! Wishing everyone a good and safe holiday.

Lucy: Hey Xena, we better hurry up. I am the official greeter for the Diva Slippers Band and aren’t you playing your accordion?

Xena: Yep, I left it over where we are playing. Maybe we better come back later for our candy.

Both: Nah!

Now hop on over to Mayor Arty’s blog to join everyone as we celebrate the day we honor our brave veterans.

  1. It was a really fun day, and at the end of it I raised a toast to my late brother who served in the Submariner service during the Vietnam War era. If you ever want to google it, he was part of “Operation Ivy Bells” which is really interesting. So great to see you today!

    1. I remember reading about your brother serving on a submarine. Didn’t realize he was there during the Vietnam era. I know you miss him terribly.


    1. Mom says it will take a good week for us to recover. Xena was a real wild child tonight. She insisted on taking my leash when Mom was trying to get us ready for our evening walk.

    Misty and Timber had Lightning hold their cotton candy while they went on a ride together. When they got off, he had eaten theirs AND his!!!

    1. Hi YAM- Auntie! I hope you had fun on the rides. Our tummies were too upset. And we, er, Xena was too scared to go on the rides, so I stayed with her. 🙂 ~Lucy
