Memorial Day... Honoring and remembering those who have served and are currently
serving in the armed forced, thank you for protecting our country!
Memorial weekend ....
The guys go fishin' well if that's what you want to call it
On Saturday, my oldest took this one of his dad and little brother out on the boat....fishing?
This picture was actually taken last year. My dad in the red shirt and hat, then my hubby, big brother, little brother, brother-in-love, oldest nephew, nephew-in-love, oldest son, youngest son,
and my two youngest nephews on the end.
Yep, every Memorial weekend they hang out together and leave us girls home to fend for ourselves.
This year my sister and her daughter came down to mom's house here in Rochester, I picked up Audrey and we made the trip over to the old Concord cemetery, where my mom's family is buried.
(My daughter had to work so she didn't get to join us girls)
My mom's cousin Lester happened to be there at the same time, cleaning around his parents tomb stone. (to the left is Lester and my mom's grandparents and also Mom's parents,
along with many other family that have died).
Both sets of my great-grandparents are buried next to each other.
The girls (2nd cousins) wanted to stop at the old park in West Concord, it's the same play equipment I used to play on when I was a kid. The "Thomas Reunion" was always held here.
It rained off and on all day making it for a sloppy day but we found time to be outside when we could.
Back at mom's house to let my sister's dog out to run and play with the ball.
My niece Jensen and granddaughter Audrey.
Audrey is thinking she's pretty cool to be hanging out with her big cousin.

backwards hug, when it was time to go.
Looks like Ruby is a little jealous :)
I was glad to get my boys back last night,
I don't do to well when my hubby is gone. At bedtime, my bedroom door gets locked, the bedside light stays on all night along with the little TV next to my bed, and I have a 8" butcher knife on the bedside table....just in case!
