Glimpses of Memorial Weekend

Sunday morning, after planting my tomatoes and peppers which had been dutifully waiting to placed in the ground, I headed north to visit Forrest and Amy and the kiddos.

I stopped along the way at the Willamette National Cemetery to spend some time at Al's gravesite.  The stars and stripes were billowing over each grave and lining the roadways.  So many times in the news lately, we hear of those who are citizens of our great country but can only find words to condemn it.  Yet the flags still wave gently for a country created to defend our freedoms - 

Fun with Ephraim and Selah!

At the Children's Museum on Tuesday - the fireman and reading in Papa Bear's chair

Christina's trick birthday!  (candles that is!)  We were able to share in Christina's 21st Birthday on Monday evening.
