Busy Weekend . . .

This has been a fun & busy weekend.
Friday my sister, Susan, & brother-in-law, Mike drove over from Missouri for a visit. They got to meet Ethan for the first time. We had a family dinner & watched a movie here at the house. We stayed up until almost 2:00 a.m. visiting. We were sorry they had to go home Saturday morning.
Saturday night Bob & I went to a reunion dinner in the small town where he was born. Bob's the president of the reunion committee & always does a great job being the master of ceremonies for the evening.
Today we're hosting our annual 'Memorial Weekend Smoked Meat Fest'. We'll have about a dozen family members over for 2:00 dinner.
This is always a busy weekend that ushers in the summer season.
Let's all take time to say a prayer of thanks for all those who served our country in the past, & those that are serving now.
This is also a time that we pause to remember our dear family members who have already passed on.
Wishing you all a wonderful Memorial Day!!!
