Memorial Day 2014 – Cemetery Visits


We broke from tradition this year and did our cemetery visiting the day before Memorial Day.  It was a nice way to fill up a Sunday afternoon.  (The cemeteries were no less busy, though.)  It was such a gorgeous day – much better than the cold/rainy/snowy weather we get about every 3rd year.  We really could not have asked for anything better.

Here are some of the sights of our visit.  Just a warning: Caleb was really on one.  Too much sugar?  Too much 5-year-old?  Whatever it was, you’ll soon see the evidence!!

Josh is giving Daniel  “drive your mom nuts when she is taking pictures” lessons!



Not sure what they’re looking at, but it must be interesting to get Daniel’s attention.



Jared pointed out the headstone for one of his ancestors, John Baptist R.  When Caleb heard, he exclaimed in amazement, “JOHN THE BAPTIST  R.??!?!?”  He cracks us up!



The grave of Alonzo Raymond.  (Caleb the ninja at work.)



The grave of James and Drusilla Hendricks.  (Caleb is going with the evil-eye look.)



The mini obelisk for William Hendricks.  (Now Caleb has Josh joining in on his antics.)



The grave of Joseph Shaffer.  (Caleb is still at it.)



The grave of Johanna Holm.  (Even Daniel is becoming slightly disturbed by Caleb’s adventures!)



This one is a bit blurry, but still one of my all-time favorites.  D-man LOVES his daddy!!



The memorial for Thomas Jessop.  (And finally, Caleb is back to his regular 5-year-old self!)



And the best smiler award goes to Rachel!  Sweet girl.
