Memorial Day Fun

We are very thankful to all who serve, have served, and have died for our freedom here in America.  Very thankful for their families and all the sacrifices they make.

We enjoyed a fun day at a park near by, Benson Park, with friends.  We had a picnic in a big open area.  As soon as we were done eating, we took cover under a tree, as it began raining.  Once it quit, the kids had races, then we went to the playground area where they had lots of fun.  Then we walked around the park.  Many years ago it was a zoo, so there are still some cages and such.  There's a big pond with a walking trail around it, and several trails in the woods.  It's a really great place that they are in the process of making even nicer.  It was very crowded too. We had a great day:)

This is a 9/11 Memorial they have.  That dark post is from the Towers.  They have stones leading up to this area giving the time line of the 9/11 events.  It's a really nice area, but so sad.

And of course, every fun park day ends with ice cream:)  YUM!!!
