33,000 flags. *the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund sponsors a Memorial Day flag display on the Boston Common, with a sea of flags representing Massachusetts service members who lost their lives in the line of duty.

at the end of the evening, each of my kiddos took home one of these flags as a token to remember those who have served our country.

God bless the U.S.A.

a perfect day.

June 7, 2010
our memorial day included…

good friends + good food + sunshine.

it was perfect. while our loved ones who have passed on, were in our thoughts.

i used my new polaroid camera for the pictures, i’m still adjusting to the settings. anyone else struggling with the settings on this camera? it’s hard to waste the film when you gotta pay for it!


our kids had their last day of school on friday, may 22nd. we picked them up from school at noon and headed to vegas!

we had a family wedding to attend in boulder city this weekend, and our darling niece dani hooked us up with a sweet deal where she works – the green valley ranch. we had a fantastic, spacious room and 50% off all of our food, love good deals. thank you very much D!

our family had a very needed, relaxing, weekend in the sun. there is nothing better than uninterrupted family time. we loved their pool. it had this awesome beach section full of sand that molded into the regular pool.
