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!

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