Was Your Memorial Day Memorable?

Who did you remember?

What gratitude did you feel?

Did you celebrate the day with loved ones?

We shared the day in Colorado with Jeff’s family before flying back to California. We were thankful to be able to be together and to honor PopPop, who wore his World War II Veterans cap.

He had so many stories to share and our kids had connections to make from their travels abroad to places where he had served. History came to life and was tangible. Everyone was engaged and happy to be together.

We also spent some time at the Air force Academy in Colorado Springs, admiring the air show and beautiful views.

Thank you Aunt Debbie and Ken, Megan and family, and PopPop for spending time with us. We loved being with y’all!!

Happy Memorial Day!

Day 60: Colorado Springs

We were up at 4:15 am to catch a 7 am flight this morning. The kids were dressed and ready before us. They each had their own backpacks loaded with electronic devices, books, paper and pens, gum and crackers. They are so easy to travel with now that they’re older.

We are in Colorado Springs to visit the kids great grandparents, and Aunt Debbie. It’s always so nice to visit them, especially on Memorial Day weekend. Jeff’s grandpa also went to West Point and served in WW2. They have so many stories to share that we appreciate and value.

A favorite activity wherever we travel is the swimming pool, much to Jeff’s chagrin! I totally get it and love how much fun they have together.

Hope you enjoy the long weekend!
