Parade for Tuesday

Today is the day to honor and celebrate the life of Tuesday Whitt. The blogging community, thanks to Lee and Em (visit either of them to join the parade), are hosting a virtual parade to show our love and support for this family as they host their own wagon parade for Tuesday today. We are posting pictures of parents and children having fun, riding in wagons, and doing other fun things together. May this family feel the strength of this wonderful blogging world!

My pictures may seem a little odd, because it's really just us BEING, not us DOING. But I can tell you, what you are about to see may be the most important family tradition we have. The family sleepover. We do this every Friday and most Saturdays. We make our beds in the family room, among all the toys, tossed aside clothes, newspapers, magazines and more. We are always looking for a reason to have a family sleepover - snow days, school holidays, school delays, summer ... the list goes on. So look between the mess and see that this tradition is one that, I have no doubt, our kids will carry on into their parenting years. MG took these pictures last night.

  1. What a great tradition!! I will need to keep that one in mind once the Youngest gets old enough to not roam the house and try to juggle knives.

    Thanks for linking!! Em
