Memorial Day in Small Town U.S.A.

Every year on Memorial Day my Uncle Paul and his wife Sandy have a celebration where the family and friends can come together, have some food, share some quality time and of course pay our respects for those that the day is truly for.
I'll quote his words that describe the day:
"Some of us neighbors get together and decorate 5 local cemeteries by placing flags on military veteran's graves. The American Legion provides permanent flag holders and we stroll along remembering the folks we used to know and pause to read about those who were here long before us."

On Memorial Day we gathered together and shared some good home cooked food, including home made ice cream and cakes, we hung out, we talked, we laughed we even had a parade through the downtown of our small town, just for us. Here's some pics of the cars that were present.
