Memorial Day in Granbury

Since Grandma was in town, Steve was off from work, and neither of the boys had school, Memorial Day seemed to be a perfect day to drive to Granbury. It was nice to just get away from home and all of the things to do - even if it was for just one day.

One of the highlights of the trip for the boys was going to a swimming pool with a diving board. Evan was a little nervous at first, but then we had trouble getting him off when it was time to leave. Joel tried a few times, but didn't like it as much. He wanted to cover his ears when he went off the board. Of course, after I got my camera out and ready to take pictures, he didn't want to dive anymore.

Another highlight was getting to play with all of their dad's old Lego sets. They even got to pick out some to bring home! Joel picked a big castle and Evan picked some cool cars. Since Joel likes to make his own designs, Steve has been busy at nights putting the sets back together. (We have lost a few pieces from the boys sets, and really don't want to lose any of the pieces from these.)

We also brought back the other bed so that the boys can have bunk beds. We haven't assembled them yet, but it is on the "to-do" list.

All-in-all it was a relaxing day for us. However, it's important to remember the real reason that we set aside this day as a holiday and be thankful for those men and women who have given their lives so that our country can remain free. And I was saying extra prayers that day for my nephew who is currently serving our country overseas. So, I would like to thank all of our great veterans and their families - especially those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Thank you!
