Memorial Day weekend and it feels like summer is officially here. Heber has been unusually warm this year. Absolutely beautiful. It seems like Memorial Days can be hit and miss around here, but we definitely hit the jackpot this year.
We started our holiday with a drive to Claire's and Lily's grave in Cottonwood Heights. It is such a beautiful place, especially when the whole place is decorated. It is always a peaceful place to be with our family.
Enticed by the first Brag Badge of the season we attended the community Memorial Day breakfast and program. It was a good reminder of the sacrifice many make and why we celebrate this day.
We did find it ironic that we were waving Taiwanese American flags during one pseudo-patriotic country song touting "Made in America."
Karen and the Johnson cousins came to visit between leaving their home in Anchorage and moving to a new home in Houston. The kids all ran the Memorial Day Mile-long Fun Run. Eli has been asking to run a race all spring. He ran the whole way. Drew took second place. If there had been a prize he would have tried harder and taken first he claims. Isaac took a few "short cuts."
Afterwards we went home for pizza--got to get right on the pizza party Brag Tag.
All in all, a memorable day!
