Respect

I threw some red, white and blue onto the table and I quick went to see the Colonel...


He provided me with a picnic lunch of chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, cole slaw, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and biscuits. 


We had Twinkies for dessert.

There was laughter...


Lots of kisses....


And some much needed play...


Eventually a gentle rain came leaving wet grass and cooler temperatures.


The hot day didn't affect those inside as the cool of the AC kept them comfortable while they watched Guardian's of the Galaxy in 3-D and surround sound.


A confused Gracie couldn't decide whether she wanted inside where there was lots of original recipe fried chicken or outside where there was more of the same.  Keeping up became tiring for the old girl.




We celebrate by bringing family together to create memories for our kid's tomorrows. 

 But Memorial Day is so much more than that.  

It's a day to honor and remember our veterans and troops with respect and much gratitude.








Wishing everyone a memorable, safe, blessed Memorial Day.
