For Memorial Day the kids gathered at the Mill house for a simple BBQ. (Usually we are up at Cathey's Valley for family things.....more space there}
The kids tried to swim....they did for a while...then it just became too cold....it even rained a bit.
Everyone chipped in for the meal....so it was awesome.
- Hamburgers and hot dogs
- Fruit and vegetable kabob's
- Crock-pot beans
- Hawaiian style shaved ice.
Cole decided he didn't like the idea of sharing with the kids....so he came to play games with us.
A little before and after-
Mill house before-
The Mill House after- just some paint and a few yard touch ups.
We have a few more things we would like to do...when we are finished I will share.
- Decorative iron gate on the right side
- new garage doors
- arbor over the garage doors
- and iron decorative panels for the wall leading up t0 the front door.
It was a wonderful day with the family- I am thankful that we have the freedoms we enjoy and...
On this Memorial Day I am especially Thankful; as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life. I am thankful for them.
I also believe Patriotism consists not only in standing strong with those so strive to keep our country free; but also in striving to be a righteous country as well as a strong one.
I am thankful for those who stand in Holy places-
