Memorial Day Fun

During Memorial Weekend we always visit the East Lawn Cemetery where my grandparents are buried. He served as a Colonel in the Air Force and she was the most patriotic women I ever knew. It's a beautiful cemetery and I love seeing the flags they put up on that weekend.
It was a wonderful, relaxing, not-do-anything-important weekend. I loved it! Little kids played outside, we had a birthday celebration, and enjoyed shish-ka-bobs. I wish there could be a weekend like this every month!
Cutest twin girls ever? I think so.
Grandpa feeding Macie her first cantaloupe and teaching her how to play Mormon Bridge. I love how tiny her hands are next to his.
Alli blocking Christian from blowing out her candles.
It was a little too cold to swim, but the boys loved it anyway

So glad I was able to come yesterday Barb! And thank you so much for taking those pictures. What sweet (2nd cousin?) uncles and aunt they have. The kabobs were delicious and it was fun to just relax with everyone.

Way to celebrate Memorial Day weekend just the way it was intended - to remember family members who have passed on, and to spend time with the family you've got near you. Looks like a lot of fun.
