Memorial Day

( Yes I am a nut and bought a flower arrangement that said Dad for Kaels grave it was a major oops)

This Memorial Day was a good one spent with family and friends. On Friday we headed up to Wyoming t stay with Layne brother for a few days to spend time with family and take the kids shooting. The boys have been dying to go since last fall and Landon got his own gun now so we decided it was perfect timing (dont fear we taught all of the boys about gun safety first and they had full supervision the whole time!!). Tiara was a champ on the drive there and back and I would say did very well for her fist little vacation away from home. It was great to spend time with Rich the boys love him so much. We had a BBQ one night and watched fun movies and went to this really yummy restaurant for breakfast one of the mornings it was such a fun trip. We came back home Sunday morning since Daxton had the prayer in Primary and Landon had the scripture. It was cute seeing them do their little parts. That night we went to a friends house to hang out and have another BBQ. Monday we visited the cemetery it always amazes me how beautiful it is on Memorial Day. There are thousands of flowers, flags, so much love that can be felt. It was nice to visit with Kael as a family as well as my grandpa who served in the war, my grandma, my brother and my aunts grave. Its a beautiful time to reflect on life and the reason for the holiday. We made sure to teach the boys the reason for the day. We decided to go out for dinner and the boys choose a place called Ichiban. Stefon picked it because he wanted sushi ( smart kid :)..) and Daxton and Landy choose it because they love the chicken there. It was really a great weekend spent with the ones we love most!!

Looks like a fun time! My boys have shot guns in Tenn and love it. I love the picture of the boys standing together they look so excited!

How funny that you got a flower thing that said "dad" lol that's classic. It's the thought that counts right? :)
