Our Memorial Day started out at 7 am sharp with Turtle watching. Apparently our yard is a hatching ground. This is the third one in two weeks.
We had a family breakfast at a local spot that is always wonderful.
Then we were off to a park for some kite flying.
A little spice rub shopping at Williams & Sonoma.
Home for some cuddle time.
And then back out to splash around in Chesapeake Bay.

BUT the best part was at dinner. During our discussion of what Memorial Day meant our daughter just stood up, went over, and gave her Daddy the sweetest hug. It was just one of those pure moments in a six year olds life when she just "got it". Our family is a military family and we are very proud of that and so she felt he deserved a hug.
Many men and women sacrifice so we can enjoy many freedoms like this day of leisure, for this I am thankful.
Hope you all had a great Memorial Day!
