weekly winners 4.3-4.9.11 {a day with the fam}

I ended up spending all Saturday with the family. I don’t think I can ever get enough time with the nieces & nephews đŸ™‚
We ventured out to watch my bro-in-law play a softball game and show support with a warm welcome home for a local war hero who lost an arm & both legs. It was amazing to see how many people turned out in the streets to honor him. I get chills just thinking about it.
In all, a wonderful day and great experience for the littles (and adults too).

caterpillars and gravel: the possibilities are endless

a new pet?

he just learned to jump & of course he's jumping off anything he can find

they love their Popps

my dad waiting to show his respect

the hero - wish I had gotten a better photo of him

we turned around & realized that the game had come to a halt as the motorcade passed by (left quite a few of us teary-eyed for sure)

 

a warm welcome

    That is awesome! I can relate. It is amazing to see how a community comes together to honor our hero’s . It was the same way when SPO Christian was killed here in Athens. The streets were lined! Thanks for a great post!
