It sounds like a very nice week-end even though you were called into work.
Is Memorial Day the day most people in the US dust off the BBQ and have the first cookout of the season?
We went to a cookout on Sunday which was lot of fun. Monday, we had a pretty awesome day - even considering I was called into work for an extra shift. (I admit, I took this shift because it was double holiday pay!)
I watched my youngest carry his bass drum for the last time (since he isn't going to do band next year) in our small town parade. Every year I go, and every year I shed tears as the Veterans march or ride by and Taps are played at the different sites Wreaths are laid.
Dh and I took a motorcycle ride after since the youngest went off to a friend's house.
All in all, it was mostly a relaxing day.
