We headed over to the Gerdes' house for Memorial Day this year. The air was warm and crisp, and the hot dogs were too!
Emmy was most excited about getting in the water.
We got to share the day with family and friends. Some old and some new.
The kids were ready to jump into summer.
A certain little boy was ready to celebrate his first official holiday.
It was a wonderful day full of fun, food, and family--our basic gathering composition. We had a good time, but at the end of the day, we made sure that we took some time to reflect on what the day is really about and remember all of the courageous men and women who fought so valiantly for our freedom.
