Memorial Day 2010

"Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service." ~ Wikipedia

This has become a day in our society devoted to BBQ and Pool time and I must admit that we indulged in a little of that. Thanks to all our people that have given their lives so that I can sit by the pool. My life is good here in America and I owe that to those that have come before me. God Bless you and your memory. Thank you for your sacrifice.

The clan enjoying the water!
Princess and Sugar floating around the pool.
Possible going in circles.
Goobers was working hard, at least we got to be with her. She is a really good guard.
Sugar looks so pretty with the sun all around.
Bear is always in the middle of the biggest splashes.
OK maybe not always in the middle, sometimes it is his dad. J likes to pick up the children and toss them across the pool. Pickle loves to be tossed.
Sugar helped Bagel get settled on the floats.
This was the only time I felt comfortable all weekend, in the water cooling off. Thank God for the pools.
Goobers was my favorite guard at the pool on Memorial Day.
She worked hard to rescue us even from the ants. An ant nest must have been blown into the water. The ants appeared dead until they got on your arm and then they would bite! Not fun.
Games in the deep end.
My precious Jumba is growing up so fast.
The first and the last. Jumba and Pooker.

(Love this picture - pulled off of a google search)

We had a wonderful day with each other to enjoy the freedoms that others have won for us. We thank God for the right to praise Him and for the lives that were sent to protect that right.
