Soldiers, Family and Community...

This weekend we remember the soldiers, men and women, who have given their lives for our country. Parades, gun salutes, wreaths, flags,... all a part of that. But Memorial Day Weekend always means more to me,... it means to remember family members and community people that have gone on... As I type this post I will dedicate it to every one of those people.


The fun part of the day on Saturday took me to our family cabin on this Adirondack pond.


One grandson was exploring in a little boat with a trolling motor...


The youngest grandson was playing in the water,...


Then my older son took his nephew out fishing,...

The neighbors were enjoying their kayaks,...


My daughter had a coffee pot keeping at the ready by the campfire...


The woodland flowers are blooming,...


The pine trees are putting out little seedlings,...


And "Panda," she watched over all of us!

May everyone have a safe holiday weekend as we remember why we have the picnics and parades!

Hi Cedar,

Sounds like a great Saturday! I can hardly believe the kids are swimming already. There's no way you'd get me in that cold water!
