Memorial Day 2011

A special day to remember some amazing people.
People who gave their life for us.
Our fallen soldiers.
We remember.
We thank you.

It was a low key day.
My Ryan was still gone, lost at the cabin in the woods. But lucky for me he was coming home today.
I haven't been feeling to hot and didn't really enjoy my time alone.
I missed that guy.
Luckily by the time I got to the cemetery he was there!
Some other very amazing people had already left our Kenzie some beautiful flowers.
We are so lucky to have so many people love our little muffin.
We added to the decor with some flowers and toys.

The bag pipes were there as usual and the sun even managed to peak its head through the clouds which was perfect. The whole hill was filled with flowers and people.  Its so peaceful every Memorial Day.

There he is!
My dirty, smelly, camo mountain man.
Look at our little nieces smile here. Ah I could eat her up.

I'm so blessed to live in this country. I'm honored to know so many service man and women.
I know our children will grow to know how so many people in their lives are the reason why we are free.

Those balloons-

I read your words and they are beautiful. You write so well, and I am a huge fan of your honesty. (we have that in common! :)

But it's those balloons.

I see them in your pictures and I smile and tears sting my eyes every time.

I think it is the most perfect way to tell her you love her.

Lots of love, sweet family!
