Memorial Day 2014

Grey heard about the special memorial ceremony at the Ft Logan Cemetery and begged to go. He heard all about the flyover, gun salute and other cool stuff they would have. We thought it sounded fun so we packed everyone up (including the oxygen tank) and headed over. The ceremony was sooooo boring after the initial cool military stuff and the flyover ended up being a tiny, slow navy plane. We were waiting for the jets! But it turned out pretty special because we got to go visit Jared's uncle Jerry's grave who passed away a few years ago. We spent some time talking about him with the kids. He flew helicopters for the Navy and spent a long career in the military. I always tear up thinking about those who sacrifice so much for our freedoms. I am grateful for them and their loved ones.

Why is it so hard to get a picture with all three looking decent?!

We sure miss Uncle Jerry. He has a beautiful resting place.
