Memorial Day


We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them. -Francis A. Walker

This morning we went to Pinelawn Memorial Park for their annual Memorial Day program. It's a great way to take time out during this holiday and really appreciate what they day is all about. A local girl scout troop was part of the ceremony, along with a children's brass quintet, Capt. Daniel Peterson who is a WI Nat'l Guard Member and Iraq Veteran, and The Radio Rosies -- a great addition to the day. It was also the first time H has seen my parents since Christmas, and he absolutely could not wait. Afterwards, we went to Cafe Bavaria with my parents, Justin, Amy and the girls. It was a really nice day.
