It was also the same weekend as Mothers' Day and we visited with the grandkids and their mother, Shannon who also attended the event.
Grandson Bobby will be 12 years old in December. Granddaughter Ellie will be celebrating her 8th birthday in July. They can be quite loving to one another (but not always).
Youngest granddaughter Lilliana (17 months) and her mother, Coleen, celebrated Mothers' Day in PA. We'll be visiting with them in early June. She does have very large blue eyes, like her parents.
All three grandchildren seem to have grown more every time we see them and spending time with them is priceless.
This Memorial Day weekend we will take time to remember those who died while serving in our armed forces. In our family, Uncle Red (Pete) died in naval service during WW II.
