Backyard Fun

Today's gift is backyard fun.

Happy Memorial Day.  Let's us not forget why we are able to spend this day with our family and friends.  Thank you to all who served and who continue to serve our country.

Today we had a very relaxed day.  My daughter slept in (till 10AM!!) and my husband let me sleep in too!  Thanks honey.  I can't believe I am still tired...maybe too much sleep.  We hung around the house and then went to get frozen yogurt for the kids afternoon snack.  When we got back the sun was starting to come back we headed to the backyard.

We haven't spent many afternoons back there yet, as many of us in the house suffer from allergies.  So it was really nice to get back outside again.  The best part, we were all outside together.

My oldest daughter and son were swinging together, while my husband and middle daughter played golf toss.  Then we would rotate in playing the winner.  Then we played girls against boys.  This is a new game to our family (thanks Mimi and Poppy) and the kids love it!  Actually we all love it!

We had such a busy weekend, it was really nice to have a catch up day before the busy week started.  I loved having all of us, (even the dog) outside enjoying the beautiful day playing together.  It was super fun and the perfect way to end a fun filled weekend.  And a perfect way to kick off the start of the week!

Here are two quotes for honor of Memorial Day.... do you thank those who most bear the burden of ultimate sacrifice? 

While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans, Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our fellow countrymen have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms- Randy Neugebauer
