Memorial Day 2014

This year for Memorial Day we were pretty low key. We had driven home from STG and we were tired and ready to just be home. After a quick little hot dog roast with the kids and Jensen's we ran up the cemetery to visit graves and just in time to snap these pictures in the sunset.

 I know that Memorial day is to pay tribute to those that have fought and died for the freedoms in which we get to enjoy. I can't adequately articulate my thoughts on my gratitude and how awesome of a nation we live in, but I think President John F Kennedy said it best when he said,
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, Bear any burden, meet any hardship, support and friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
 Since it is common to decorate all graves on this day, we left a few flowers and pinwheels on a couple of graves including my dads.
 This was the twins first time up there.
 Oliver is very familiar with this place and on occasion will ask to go up to Grandpa Bills.
Happy Memorial Day.
