This past Monday was Memorial Day in the United States. It is always the last monday in May – and it is a national holiday (most people have the day off) and so most people have a 3 day weekend. It is the unofficial start of summer. The holiday is for remembering all the people who fought or died in past wars – it is to show respect and honor to those people (and now many people go to the beach haha )
I went on a nice bike ride the day before memorial day (sunday). It was a longer bike ride – about 30km. On the way, I got to smell many different kinds of natural flowers and I saw some pretty animals too – not only birds, but a rabbit and severl deer! My ride went through a small town called Vienna – it is a nice place – and they were having a small carnival/festival with music, food, games, rides, etc. There were lots of families with their children there – the kids really love to play and have fun!!
