Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day 2015
First and foremost, thank you to all of those men and women who paid the ultimate price and gave their lives for our freedom. I am proud to be an American and I am forever grateful to you.

USA Today had a wonderful article with 10 historical facts about Labor day, if you have a chance, you should go read it.

We’ve been hanging out in the Venice area. It’s me, my Mom, MacGyver, my sister-in-law and her husband, oh, and we don’t want to forget the four dogs, Hank, Boomer, Shakespeare and Riley.

Memorial Day Bracelet

My SIL gave me this beautiful bracelet. It’s perfect for the day. Now if I can find something to wear with it…..

Today we are heading over to spend the day with MacGyver’s parents in the Englewood house. I’m looking forward to some pool time, some boating and most definitely, some fishing.

Here is a quick recap of the weekend so far in pictures mostly because I’m in lazy mode right now:

Legacy Trail Bridge

Of course I’ve been running on my favorite trail, the Legacy Trail.

Everyone kayaking

Running over the bridge I actually got a picture of MacGyver, my sister-in-law and her husband fishing on their kayaks and versa boards.

the Legacy Trail

A good portion of the trail is shaded which is nice when it’s almost 80 degrees at 6:30AM!

Casey Key

After running, my Mom, me and my SIL hit the beach at Casey Key.

Nokomis Beach

It’s beautiful here but I only lasted an hour and a half before I got a blistering migraine.

I spent the afternoon sleeping and nursing my migraine but I feel better now and it’s on to some more fun.

Kayaking in Florida

The boards are awaiting us in the backyard. (How do you like my fire pit?  I built it myself.)

Shower outdoor

If you’re ever in the area, we’ve got quite a few kayaks, paddleboards and even a canoe. And we have an outdoor shower! Drop on by.

Wherever you are today, I hope you have a nice holiday with family and friends and don’t forget about what this day means to us. We are very fortunate as a family not to have lost any members to any wars, although we have had many that were seriously wounded. We also honor them today.

If you know someone who has given their live for this country, you are welcome to leave a dedication below.

God Bless you all and Happy Memorial Day!
