Santa Nella, Memorial Day - 2013

It was such a touching experience to have the whole family visit Mimi and Ardy's gravesite on Memorial Day.  I had floods of fun, touching, and hilarious memories attack me.  My grandparents were fabulous grandparents, doting parents, honorable military servants, faithful volunteers in the community, and overall wonderful human beings.  I love to remember them, and this was the perfect outing for it.

Add a gorgeous, mile-long, flag-lined road and you might find it's hard to keep your eyes dry.

I kept thinking of my favorite patriotic verse:

"Oh beautiful,
For heroes proved
Through liberating strife,
Who more than self
Their country loved,
And mercy more than life!"

Morning Movie Party

In the Boone Home, "Mom, it's ok if you come back here, but we're having a morning movie party," yields this.
Love the synchronized thumb sucks.
It has been fun to see what the little kids come up with now that the older boys are back in school.
