Memorial Day

Hope everyone enjoyed a fun-filled and relaxing weekend. It was pretty uneventful around here, but that's nice. The weather was a little gloomy for most of the weekend. But that didn't stop Jim and Ryan from attending a Civil War reinactment at Fort Kearny. The men wore Civil War uniforms, had canons, and even had a soldier with part of his finger missing (doubt that it was war related). I think Ryan the cannons were some of the coolest things he had ever seen. Since 4th of July (see here) is one of Jim and Ryan's favorite holidays, I am not surprised he had the time of his life.

The weather finally got a little warmer Monday afternoon, so we took the kids to the pool and a barbeque. We are so excited to have a full summer with our club's new pool. It opened up last year, but not until mid-June. I am looking forward to afternoons of lounging by the pool with the kids.

This doesn't really have anything to do with Memorial Day other than that I took the picture today, but I just had to post it. Her sweet little face is just too cute!!! Love ya sweet Alex!

Okay is Alex just getting cuter by the day? We miss hanging out and doing holiday things with you guys!!

You definitely celebrated Memorial Day just like you should have. I don't think I have ever done anything of that nature except for being in a parade when I was younger. Have a good night!

p.s. Doug went with the FJ--you can bet he will be doing the Toyota jump tomorrow or Wednesday :)
