Memorial Day

Same pictures, different day. 

On Memorial Day, we opted for another hike. Uriah woke up with a nasty cold, and we thought the fresh air would do him some good. We chose a different path in the same Hulls Gulch region, this one taking us down into the valley. It was beautiful and warm and we loved getting out together as a family!

Later in the day, we kept getting asked what we were going to be doing for Memorial Day - bbq?, picnic?, party? We both forgot that people usually use this day to get together with family and friends - we were just so excited to get time together with our little family, we never even thought about sharing our day with anyone else...?! It was a good decision for us, though. Uriah's fussy state required a lot of attention, and the extra naps and quiet time gave Stephen and I ample opportunity to cuddle up together and talk. We're pretty blessed, the two of us. And it is most easily remembered on days like that. On Memorial Day - a day designated to remembering and honoring those who have chosen to give their lives to defend our country and protect our freedom. I am so thankful for those men and women, giving up everything for their family, friends and strangers - for me. Humbling, right? We celebrated you all simply, but truly. Thank you!
