Summer 2012 (Day 5) Memorial Day

Memorial Day was a toasty one with highs in the lower 90s. Perfect pool, ice cream, and barbecue weather!

In our little town, the Veterans of Foreign Wars does a great display lining main street from one end of the town to the other with American Flags.

Off of the main drag is a side street that leads to both our small subdivision and the local town cemetery . The cemetery is filled with many graves of veterans dating back to the Civil War.

Even with all the teaching I've done on the pioneers, and reading that Mary and I have done with the Little House series, it is hard for me to imagine life in the mid-1800s out here on the prairie!  Challenging is one word that comes to mind!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the following pictures as they represent the pride and thankfulness we have for our men and women in uniform forever protecting the stars and stripes.
