Memorial Day Weekend 2016

We always make plans for ideas we'd like to accomplish in summer.  Places we'd like to visit.  But then life happens and we never arrive at those destinations.  So, at the beginning of the month, I bought some tickets to the Akron Rubber Ducks game.  We decided to go to the minor leagues.
 It was a super fun game.  Lots to see and do.  It was incredibly hot.
 We sat with our ball field food and lemonade and enjoyed the Ducks beating the Harrisburg Senators 6-2.

 We even got to see some fireworks at the end.  What a fun game.  Saturday, we took off with my Mom and Step-dad and headed to Marrieta to enjoy an evening at my Aunt Cyndi's house.  Morgan graduated from high school.  So we celebrated with a party.  We decided to get a hotel room because it would have been a late night drive home.
 This was the view from the hotel room.  Beautiful view right into West Virginia.
Monday, we enjoyed the annual Hayesville, Memorial Day parade.  Kicked off by our veterans color guard marching by.
 I agree.  May, God bless our Veterans.  They earned it!
 You can't have a parade without the fire trucks...
 ...and the marching band.
The best part was we got to watch from our newly refurbished front porch.  Thanks, to all Kyle's hard work last summer.
 This guy, will be spending next Memorial Day in Utah.  He reports back to his mission the end of July/beginning of August.  (phew!)

If you look really hard, can you see it?  In the crook of the branch is a humming bird on her tiny nest.  Super cute to watch.


  1. Your weekend sounds as busy as ours! Atleast we made it to the Temple on Sat. It's been a while since we've gone and it felt good to be there. Summer graduated on Sunday and Monday I was on call but managed a small cookout with kids and lots of outdoor work..whew..work was more restful than that today! Glad Koda is heading back out! We wish him luck and will keep him in our prayers!

  2. Great news about Kota! And your hummingbird is beautiful. :)

  3. Glad you and a fun weekend. We did, too, visiting my mom.
