our Memorial Day...

for my birthday this year... Stephen and the kiddos took me to Salt Lake to stay in a hotel, play and shop. It was a lot of fun. We went swimming, took the kids to the Spaghetti factory, went to a few malls, IHOP (a must for breakfast, but not very smart because it was Memorial day and EVERYONE went to IHOP for breakfast...). But, our highlight was driving up to Ogden to the Hill Aerospace Museum. Because we went on Memorial Day, we had the special treat of having dozens and dozens of Vets there at each plane telling stories and details that were awesome. The hard thing about being prego and doing stuff like this... I just want to burst into tears, every second. I am so very grateful for the soldiers on land in the air and on the sea that have fought for our freedom and liberties. I don't think they are recognized enough for their great sacrifices. To top it off... Stephens brother, Stewart is coming home from war... as I type this. I am honored to have active duty family members and I am proud of their decisions to bless the lives of others.


God bless our soldiers.
