Memorial Day 2010

I was kind of excited when my kids asked if we were going to a cemetery today to decorate graves. We haven't really done that much, but it is one of my memories growing up. Seeing the cemetery covered in flowers. Hearing the stories about the folks we were visiting. So it was kind of fun to continue it with my kids. These are my grandparents. Gram has only been gone a year but my grandpa died when I was 14. Matthew wanted to know if we had any soldiers to visit so I told him how my grandpa flew airplanes in World War II. I told him the story about how my grandpa, his father and brother shot a bear one time when they were out deer hunting. It felt good to remember those who served and those who helped make me who I am.
Then we went miniature golfing. If you want entertainment take three year old miniature golfing. It was really fun to just be silly and have fun together. Then we came home and had a barbecue with my parents. Cause that is what you are supposed to do on Memorial day isn't it?!

You are such a good sport! Miniature golf! What a fun day. I can't believe we have to go back to all that real-life stuff tomorrow.

Yep, barbecue with the parents. That's what we did. :)

What a beautiful way to pay tribute on Memorial Day! And to top it off with mini golf and a barbecue--what could be more "All American" than that?
