Monday, May 30

here comes the weekend …

We spent a gorgeous hour having lunch on the beach Friday.  A little dive right on the water, but the food is oh so good.  


Then Saturday, I made a few dozen of these to bring to our friends’ annual kick off the summer BBQ.  (Bet you didn’t know I bake, right?)


Sunday, we had dinner at my sister’s club here …


And Monday, we honor those who serve with our village’s annual Memorial Day Parade and ceremony on the village green.  Followed by a neighborhood BBQ at our house.


Surrounded by family and friends, with gorgeous weather.  Sounds like the perfect weekend to me.

Happy Weekend, and Happy Memorial Day to you all.  May God Bless those who give, those who gave, and those who gave all.  And may God Bless the USA, and all of you, too.
