Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. and like veterans day, it is a way for us to take some time to remember all those who are fighting, and have fought for our freedom. I get a little bit overwhelmed when I think of all the soldiers and people that are part of our country's military that voluntarily sacrifice everything for so many people they don't even know. It's crazy, and I admire and thank them so much for it.
My family broke tradition this year. Usually we go camping at out favorite state park, but last year there was a terrible flood, and the park is not yet open again. That combined with the horribly increased gas prices made us decide to just stay home this year. The weather was a little bit chilly and overcast, but we still had a campfire in our yard to roast hotdogs and marshmallows over. At least we didn't break tradition in that sense.

|These hotdogs were so scrawny I had to put two in one bun|

|So messy, but so worth it. There goes my diet...|
|Food coma. Need I say more?|
Hope you enjoyed your day as well!
