Memorial Day

We really didn’t celebrate this Memorial Day with anything special. Tim actually was able to take off work this holiday. All he wanted to do was lounge so I didn’t fight it.

Gracie dressed the part even though we didn’t leave the house.

Timmy had a blast in his pool. He was very busy drinking from the hose. Classic childhood memories. I love it!

He had a bright idea to fill up his gas tank with water {if only that worked in real life}.

I added his slide to the pool and it worked much better than the attached one. I love his face in this picture.

My kids are too young obviously to understand this holiday but I came up with a tradition to start now and share with them later. My cousin Jon is a marine. While he was deployed he lost some very good friends. I spoke with him today and he is going to give me the addresses to the parents of his fallen friends. So every year I’ll have the kids make a card for these special people to let them know that their sons were not forgotten and include a small gift card to show our appreciation. It’s a small idea but I hope it brings a little love to their hearts.
