Memorial Day 2018

As is our custom, we took the kids to the cemetery to put flowers on their Grandpa and Grandma Dempsey's graves. This year, there was a flag for his service in WWII.

Taking out the vase

Cleaning off the headstone

Putting in the water

Adding the flowers

There were people sitting in front of the bush where I always take pictures of the kids, so we had to use an alternate location.

We went to a park for a picnic lunch

The kids and I went to the local lake to swim later in the day after Dan had gone to bed. I don't think we've ever gone swimming this early in the year, but with it being in the 90's this past week, it was plenty warm enough!

We saw a couple of geese families.
