Memorial Day picnic food, poppies, and Maggie's birthday party at Grandma and Grandpa Rickard's. Grandma said that she's worn the same red and white striped shirt to every Memorial Day and 4th of July parade in downtown Medina for the past thirty years. My family has kind of a thing for traditions. This is the second year now that we've taken pictures with Grandma's beautiful poppies. Her garden smells of mint leaves.
