Memorial Day 2009

First of all, I want to say a special thank you to the men and women who have or are serving our country in any way, shape, or form. We are thankful for you!
We had a nice day spent with family. The kids went NONSTOP all day long, and finally have crashed early for bed. Whew! I'm glad because I am beat, too! Here is a little glimpse into our day!

We went to feed the ducks at a nearby restaurant that has a pond. It is one of the kids' favorites, and the ducks were hungry tonight! It was a perfect day to go. As you can see, Reid has absolutely NO fear of them.....or anything for that matter!

Ellie not so sure. Thank goodness one out of my two kiddos is cautious!
Ellie liked keeping her distance. But she was giving food to a duck here that couldn't get up due to being hurt. That's my girl....looking out for the underdog!
Of course, you must wear your bathing suit around, play in the kiddie pool, and eat popsickles on Memorial Ellie did just that!
And my favorite picture from the day....Pappy and Reid. Reid was loving his popsicle here. I was quite far away from them and was really happy how this picture came out. Thanks for the fun day today, Grandma and Pappy.
