We woke up on Monday morning, had some breakfast, packed up the car, and hit the road by 9:30 a.m. We were ready to get home and have a few hours remaining of our holiday (Memorial Day) to get settled and unwind before jumping back into work and our normal routine on Tuesday.
But before we left, of course we had to take our annual group photo:
It was a nice day out--but HOT at 93 degrees--so once we were home, we spent some time letting Nora expend some energy in the backyard.
Of course, the reason for the day off did not go unrecognized by me. Thank you to all of the men and women who have given their lives for this country. And thanks to all of their family members, who made the ultimate sacrifice and continue to live without the ones they love.
And to all of the men and women currently serving--including my very own brother--please, come home safely. <3
