Why I loved yesterday

We spent the day thinking about those who have given their lives in the service of our country. We participated in a moving Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony with them:
We were touched by Patriotism
We enjoyed seeing our Nation's flag displayed so prominently and beautifully in so many places
We visited several cemeteries, including this one, where we remembered a school friend who passed away three years ago...
We enjoyed the serenity of a beautiful resting place
I loved watching my husband teach the kids about fallen heroes
We had our neighbors over to share a BBQ and ended the day with s'mores
I loved being able to relax and just enjoy each other.

P.S. This one's for YOU:

Sounds like you had a wonderful day and I am sure it was heartfelt to remember those who have gone on before. The weather was perfect, too. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
