Memorial Day

Tradition is big in our family. Memorial Day in Dallas is a tradition that we all love and cherish. Time with family is always special. We headed down this morning for our annual grave cleanup/family picnic time with Doug's family. The weather was perfect and we had the best day.

Cousins.... these three are always excited to see each other!

Grandad always helps the kids fill their water cans... a tradition within the tradition! :)

The kids are always a great help cleaning up the graves. 
My Ben. He's graduating from high school next month. I'm kind of having a hard time with that! 
Handsome and handy... love this guy!
One of my favorite shots of the day... 3 generations working together. 

We headed from the cemetery to Dallas City Park and had lunch. The kids love this place!

Old school play equipment is so cool!!

The kids eventually made it down to the river to play in the water. Such a great place to do that on a hot day!

We headed home with happy hearts, thankful for those who have gone before us, and thankful for those who gave their lives for our freedom. 

Happy Memorial Day!
