Memories of Memorial Day

Our 11 year wedding anniversary fell on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa babysitting we were able to spend Sunday, just the two of us. We had a lovely day together. We went out to eat twice, we looked over the brochures PapaBear had sent to give me as a way of surprising me with a trip to Voyageurs National Park where we met 14 years ago this week, and wandered through a pet store.

The next morning we took the kids swimming at the hotel & then walked up to the parade and program that follows. The parade is nothing to write home about but the speeches, music, and tributes afterwards make it worth it. It's the least we can do! Later that day we had family over for a fish fry. To top off a fun filled weekend, I went out to eat with my girlfriends, Aubrey, Alyssa, & Hilary.

How did you celebrate Memorial Day?


  1. Looks like fun, the kids are getting so big!

  2. What fun, love the pics. Did you make the bonnet? Jay and I are celebrated our 5 anniversary with a camping trip. The only fun and cheap thing we could do with our kids!
