we spent a lovely sunny day taking a drive to nearby roanoke. the vintage downtown was all decorated for memorial day and it made me think, "this is America."

we stopped by the festival in the park. the vendors were mostly selling country crafts, which is not my style, but we enjoyed the children's art area:

I loved these russian nesting dolls:

on the drive back, we took a detour and had ice cream at this classic dairy queen (apparently the 2nd oldest in the U.S.):

ice cream with the man I love under a rainbow umbrella is the best way to celebrate the start of summer.
