Memorial Day!

Oh what a lovely memorial day weekend we had. Layne surprised me with a little get away for the weekend as he knew id been having a hard time and we needed some alone time to chat and make some decisions for stuff coming up. It was lovely from Sat afternoon to Monday afternoon we went to a lovely hotel, hot tubed, swam, napped, talked went out to some YUMMY restaurants, and had lots of fun being together. Don't worry while we were away the kids had lots of fun and spoiling at grandmas house :). It was such a nice getaway, helped me see things  a bit more clear and helped us to make some decisions for our future. Monday when we picked up the kids we headed out to the cemetery to pay our respects to the military men. I taught the boys why we celebrate memorial day and why all the flags are in the cemetery. My grandpa served in the army and is buried right next to Kael so we payed him a visit to. Someone had left the cutest monkey on his grave to whomever you are if you read this blog it made my day!! It put a big grin on my face to know someone else remembered and thought of Kael. We put flowers on the grave and some windmills and visited for a while. When we were done we headed to lunch with the kiddos, to get Stefons bday party stuff and to the store for the boys to pick prizes since they had been good and grandmas. We were going to have a BBQ but Landon and Daxton have picked up colds from somewhere so we headed home to hang out as a family, play games, watch movies and of course wrestling :). We picked up yummy dinner and had a awesome family night. I am so grateful to all of the army men/women who have served, given their all and for the ones that continue to so that we can be free!! I feel ever grateful to them for the hard work and dedication. It was a neat moment to teach the kids what the true meaning of this holiday is and for them to "get it". Thank you to all of you!!!

What a sweet husband!!! I am so glad you two were able to spend time alone. I know with little ones it is hard to connect sometimes. How sweet someone left a little monkey for Kael I know that made your heart sing:) Your family nights always sound so fun!
