Memorial Day, 2014

What a great Memorial Day weekend!! 
I {heart} l-o-n-g weekends! And short work/school weeks are the absolute BEST!!!
We had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed LOTS of time with family and friends.
Monday morning, we hit the Y for a workout, and then headed outside to enjoy some of the Memorial Day festivities they had going on.

 Our ALL TIME favorite (ex) Panther player (he just signed with the Ravens), Steve Smith, was there greeting fans and signing autographs. My boys were so... excited to meet #89!
And to be honest...I was a little star struck too;)
That afternoon, we headed over to my parents house for a family cookout and pool party!
We had a blast and enjoyed our time together!
Like so many others, we celebrated this day with a backyard bar-b-que and pool time,
 but our thoughts and prayers were with the brave ones who have sacrificed so much or even given their lives for this great nation.
"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself!"
-Joseph Campbell
"Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are stiffened!" 
-Billy Graham
