Memorial Day weekend means at least one thing at our house... "cleaning the rocks"! We head to my dad's grave and to Doug's family's gravesites to spruce up and put flowers on the headstones. Evelyn has called the headstones "rocks" since she could talk. Matthew now calls them that too!
Here's a snipit of our time visiting those who have gone before us...
My nephew Mitchell (a Cub Scout) put the flag on Dad's grave again this year. We don't get up to his grave much, but when we do, we like to make it look nice!
Oh, how they would have loved him!!
Matthew looking for flowers to water!
He made sure "Grandpa in Heaven" had well hydrated flowers!! HA!
In Dallas, Doug's Aunt Mary, Evelyn, and cousin Greg heading to the family plot.
Greg and Evelyn were such good helpers.. and are good buddies, too!!
Taking it all in....
Hey.. I know how to do this!
He watered TONS of flowers and headstones.. it was pretty funny!
My father-in-law... I think he is pretty great!!
Cuzzies and Buddies!! :)
After we left Dallas cemetery we went to an organic goat farm across the street. They were giving out free ice cream cones (made with goat milk, although you would never know!). Apparently this farm stock at New Seasons and Whole Foods. They were so nice and gave us a impromtu tour and let us get up close with the goats. It was a highlight for all of us!!
Chickens were just randomly walking around!
Feeding a goat.. trying to be brave! Love her face!
Matthew was in heaven!
Another fun Memorial Day weekend under our belt. Thankful for those who have served and do serve so we can live in a free country!!
