Memorial Day

We are so grateful to live in this free land and are grateful to the men and women who serve and have served to preserve our freedoms. We are grateful to those who have gome before us and helped us become who and what we are today. Kyle and I are both very proud of our heritage and hope to instill love of God, love of family, and love of counrty in our children.

Here are a few pics of our Memorial Weekend. We went up to the cabin to target shoot and fish. Spencer wanted to try out his new rifle (a present for getting his Eagle rank in the Boy Scouts - Congrats Spence!). The girls had a lot of fun too! We had cousin Aubrey with us and had a blast.

How fun, we love to fish and shoot clay pigeons too. I can't believe that is your brother Spencer. I remember him as just a baby/toddler.

Those pictures are so dejavu for me- My family LOVES to go shooting. I think that's why most of my hearing is gone in my left ear...but that's beside the point. We love holidays where we can be together, isn't that the BEST?
