Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend was full of fun, happiness, a few tears, remembering and lots of family time!! On Saturday Layne and I and the boys picked up his Mom and cousin Carlene and headed out for the graves. We went to 3 cemeteries and visited practically everyone.. we didn't make it to my Grandma Christensen's but I hope to make it up there this week :). Layne's Dad is a vet and is buried at the military cemetery it is so pretty there on Memorial Day they take the time to put a flag on every single grave with the wind blowing it is a sight to be seen!! After we hit all the graves we went to The Pizza Factory for lunch. It was so yummy!! Later in the day Layne surprised me with a babysitter for the kids over night and a overnight stay in Wendover. It was so much fun he got us a suite that had a hot tub right in the room and a steam shower. We had a good time chatting all the way down there, eating lots of yummy food, gambling (we broke even so you cant complain right?), and had a few yummy drinks!! Sunday we headed back home I had to work and Layne got the boys. Monday we had another fun filled day of Ihop with my sister for breakfast, shopping.. lots and lots of shopping (its never to soon to start for Christmas right), a yummy BBQ and lots of playing Lego's with the boys and wrestling. It was a great weekend of being together, remembering all those who we love that are no longer with us and to think of the real reason for Memorial Day. Thank you to all of those who fought and continue fighting for our country and our freedom. I hope you all had a gentle Memorial Day and were able to feel near to those whom you have lost. Much love to all my loved ones in heaven. I hope you all smiled from above as we remembered you!

So beautiful and sad at the same time. As we put flowers on our little girl's grave I just kept thinking, "I shouldn't have to be doing this."

I find it so interesting that we all comment on how beautiful a cemetery is.... I don't think I ever thought of it like that until I became a BLM and then lost my Grams. In the movies, it's always portrayed as such a "sad, somber" place. But I do find so much comfort there and it helps that it's perceived as beautiful a lot of the time. I only want the best for our babies. Thinking of you, hun.
