Memorial Day Weekend

We just got finished eating breakfast on our deck at our new patio set. The Husband forgot to buy an umbrella though so guess what he'll be doing in an hour or so? It's sunny out there, I think summer will be coming before we know it. We need that umbrella. Incidentally, how do you use a table cloth on a table with an umbrella in the center of it? I asked The Husband and he simply said, you don't. Ha! You know this crafty Momma will be finding a way to cut an unobtrusive hole into the table cloth I bought just for Memorial Day! It's a lovely, slightly tacky, red white and blue patriotic number I found at the grocery store. Great for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. For $3.99 I couldn't go wrong! I'll show you pictures soon. 

We are having my dad, sister, niece, and BIL over this afternoon/evening for a cook out. It will be nice to see everyone. I know The Son has been missing The Niece a lot. She's adorable and we love her but she does have a tendency to take on the role of  "Drama Queen" (she's 2) so my Sister and I are hoping she doesn't do that today. She's a little afraid of my dogs, because you know, they are oh so ferocious at a whopping 26 pounds combined! Wait until she sees how big the new pup is going to get...poor girl. Eventually, she'll out grow it I'm sure. One of these days, she might actually like us! 

So it should be a busy fun, uneventful day for us here. We're happy to have The Husband/Daddy with us ALL day as well as tomorrow. He works a lot so it's often just me and The Son. 

I have a couple posts planned out for the next few days, one of our town's Memorial Day parade yesterday, it was small I tell you, S-M-A-L-L, small but it was fun and I took a bunch of cute pictures.  We might hit another parade tomorrow that's supposed to be a bit larger so I'll have to post that too. Also, I have a post planned to honor this area of the state's largest agricultural crop. I wonder if you can guess what it is?

Have a great Memorial Day party! Can't wait to see what you do to the tablecloth. My answer would have been the same as your dh, you don't use one. LOL.

They have table cloths for those types of tables. We actually got one by mistake a few years back. They have a hole in the middle, so I guess you have to lift the umbrella out & do it that way. Kinda a PITA, but if it works... I think they have some that have zippers, too, but that would look tacky, IMO. lol
