Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day !

As we were driving home from our bike ride this morning we saw the Veterans setting up on the court house lawn for their ceremonies today.
May we never forget those who have lost their lives to defend our freedoms!

Here at home the flag is flying.
The foods are being prepared. Let's just hope the rain holds off a bit because the grill still has to be lit and manned while the burgers and hotdogs cook.

Then of course, after stuffing ourselves it's always nice to sit on the back porch swings and shoot the breeze with everyone.

Hubby's birthday was earlier this week so we will also be celebrating it today. Per his request I made a Turtle cake  and for those that aren't chocoholics I made a strawberry pretzel dessert.

Hope you all are enjoying this Memorial Day!

Hope the rain held off for your party. Sounds like it's going to be a fun filled day with lots of yummy goodies ~ Enjoy!!!
It was cold and rainy here by us today so hubs and I stayed inside and watched movies.
