Its a tradition that every Memorial Day my mom takes all the grandkids to a service in a nearby town. Whether they want to go or NOT ;)
Its good for them to go and honor the ones who have fought for our country, to see the older generation of veterans there and hear them speak. Michael likes the part where they fire off the guns, of course.
She (my mom) is VERY patriotic, and want all the grandkids to wear their flag shirts and anything else patriotic....but I'm so UNORGANIZED lately, I don't even know where any of it is... so they went in their plain old clothes. I didn't get a good look at my dad because they were in such a hurry when they picked up the kids, but I just KNOW that my mom had him all decked out in every flag thing imaginable :) I'll just BET he looked like a walking tribute to good ole AMERICA !
