it’s memorial day weekend and oscar and i couldn’t resist getting into the spirit a few days early. anyone else excited for the unofficial summer kickoff? there’s a barbecue in the works, root beer floats, burgers, and if i’m ambitious, homemade ice cream will join the menu. the mini flags will turn into centerpieces as we can never forget that the last day in may is dedicated to all our fallen heroes who lost their lives while in military service. my father served as a marine during the korean war. and i grew up with the knowledge that if things were bad the president would ‘send in the marines.’ what a comfort to know that brave men and women still heed to call to serve our nation that is still the land of the free and home of the brave.
the sun finally decided to make an appearance. and it looks as if it will be sticking around for a few days. at least long enough for us to flip those burgers. but first, a little prep time is in order.
oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!
