Memorial Day

"Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored." ~Daniel Webster
"I regret that I have but one life to give for my country." - Nathan Hale
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation." - George Washington
"It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle." - Norman Schwarzkopf

We headed over to Papa and Grandma's house today for lunch and family visiting...15 of us all together. All the little cousins had fun playing together!

Thank you to all the veterans!

Looks like you had a really fun day, Candace! We did sort of the same thing, just with fewer people. We had a little cookout at Eric's grandmother's house with me, Eric, his grandmother, and parents.

Was your camera broken?
