Memorial Day

This year we took Memorial Day very slow with Shawn gone and remembering Andrew and what happened last year.
We hung out at home just family

and finished up the last of the Easter chocolate

Then we went over to Thomas and Natalie's for a little cook out

Then they went to Post where the USO had a Sesame Street Live show free for the kids.
They all wore their Army hats.

The USO also gave them each a bandana and an Elmo flashing toy.

Then to Rita's for some Italian Ice

Good all things considered

Andrew's big brother. Evan, a four time deployed Airman
 DIED of a self inflicted gun shot wound.

He  had gotten out of the service a couple of months ago and had a new job and new son.
My heart aches for his wife, Felicia
I'll be in Ohio staying with my sister for a few days.
I don't know how you get past loosing two sons

RIP Evan and Andrew
