Reflections of Memorial Day

The family gathered and we played and we ate.

We ate a lot.

Dinner on Memorial Day 2011
The day was hot, the water perfect and we gathered to celebrate the beginning of summer and to remember the service men and women who lost their lives in service to this great nation.

Country music was blaring on the radio and the day would have been perfect had only the Orioles been able to stop their losing streak. But they weren't.

Ethan Airborne off the Board
It was a full day of family and swimming and the pool got a great workout.

It was fun and hot and trying.  Jax took a header going into the house on a slippery floor.  Lucas again demonstrated his interior design abilities by rearranging the chairs, and Ethan really got the knack of swimming.

How Many Pool Toys do We Need?

 The drink of the day is something we call an Almond Joy--coconut rum and diet Sierra Mist. It goes down a bit too easy for some in the crowd.

Memorial Day 2011.  God Bless America.
