Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day
 A special day to honor those whose lives of all who were lost fighting for our country and our freedom.

Yesterday we visited (3) different cemeteries to place flowers on the graves of loved ones who have passed away. It was so beautiful to see all of the brand new, American flags that have been placed at the graves of those who have served in the armed Services.  Do you have any Memorial Day traditions?
It's been a gorgeous weekend weather-wise and so nice to have 3 days off from work. We got to spend some time with the little ones (next one is due in 4 weeks). We felt young, blowing bubbles, kicking balls outdoors and watching some Curious George as well.

I received several new books over the last few weeks that I can't wait to try. 


  1. Great photos of the little ones! We will always remember our heros, today and every single day.

    Hope you enjoy all your new books. China Dolls and The Book of Unknown Americans are two I'm eager to read.

  9. lovely lovely photos and we remember.......

  10. Hi Diane, your Little Ones are adorable! A very special time to be with them I know. A very special day today. We are spending ours quietly but this time next week a great adventure begins. Have a wonderful day my friend and thank you so much for all these wonderful book reviews.

  11. Hi Diane,

    We too have a long weekend, here in the UK, although our own 'Remembrance Day' falls in November and this extra long weekend is to celebrate the Spring Bank Holiday and welcome in the start of Summer, with it always falling on the last Monday in May, regardless of the date.

    I have seen 'All The Light We Cannot See', on several blogs this week and was tempted to succumb and add it to my own list. That is until I checked out 'The Book Of You', which wasn't at all what I was expecting and sounds absolutely riveting, an absolute must for my list.

    Your family pictures are lovely and such great memories.

    Enjoy your family and of course, your books and have a great week,


  12. Happy Memorial Day! You got some great books this week - I need to check them out.

  13. What fun to relax with your little ones. I would love to read that Edward Hopper book.

  14. No Armchair BEA for you today? Lovely photos! We have been having family time this weekend, too, with all 3 kids home for a visit. Only one left who has Tuesday off, too, for a four-day weekend!

  15. It sounds like you're enjoying the long holiday weekend very much - the kids are so cute! I've seen some glowing reviews of All the Light We Cannot See and will be curious to see what you think.

  16. What adorable little ones :-) I see a Peppa Pig book - she's a favorite when granddaughter Grace is at our house. It's the one kids show I actually enjoy. Your other books look wonderful.

  17. What a nice Memorial Day tradition - and it sounds as though you had a wonderful weekend, too! Your little ones are adorable!

  18. I'm glad you had a good weekend. You two grand babies are sure cute.

  19. Beautiful babies! Glad you ahd a blessed and youthful weekend :)

  20. The girls are just precious!! And congrats on number three coming soon. How wonderful!
