Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!  
This holiday brings to mind all the soldiers and their families who have sacrificed so that we in the U.S. enjoy all our freedoms. I am so grateful for the service, sacrifice and bravery that our soldiers embody - thank you to all the military, past and present, and all of their families.  We are free because of you!

  54. Memorial Day is spent in Ocean City, NJ, renting a surrey and riding up and down the boardwalk. Then you walk taking in all the shops, stopping for pizza, getting some Shriver's saltwater taffy, sampling the fudge, and not forgetting to get a cup of gelato. If it's warm enough you take some time to sit on the beach for a while and enjoy the sound and smell of the ocean.

  55. Awesome giveaway! We normally spend Memorial Day at the cabin with friends...this year worked helping our son with his remodeling.

  60. Our Memorial Day was spent in Sacramento at a 5K Run for the Vietnam Veterans...My husband is a Vietnam Vet so it was very special to be there with the few speeches, songs and other veterans to remember their service. Naturally we didn't "win" but it was fun to spend the day together doing something special for vets....I hope you had a special day too.

  61. This year we drove to MI from OH to see my mom for a belated Mother's Day dinner. It was just a quick visit but nice!

    ReplyDelete
  62. We always celebrate Memorial day with a family cookout & then visit veterans at the nursing home, bringing them homemade cookies & a hand made card thanking them fortheir service to our country. they always have interesting stories too tell & yesterday was no different. it's sad to see that a lot of Vietnam vets are showing up in nursing homes. I'm used to seeing a few remaining WWII vets & Korean war vets but it doesn't seem like it's time for Vietnam vets to be in there yet.

  63. Every few years my daughter's birthday lands on Memorial Day, this year she turned 16 on Memorial Day, so that's how we spent it this year. I am so grateful for our wonderful country and the freedoms we have because our soldiers are willing to sacrifice. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  64. We spend the day home relaxing. It is one holiday we don't travel.

  72. Love Emma's stamps and dies. Hope I get lucky.

    This summer as every year for the past 30 years, I look forward to campmeeting here in PA. It's a time of spiritual uplift and an opportunity to make a difference in a child's or teen's life.
