Happy Memorial Day


I have been to a few other countries in the world and I believe we live in one of the best countries on this planet... no doubt about it. Today - we are super thankful for those who have given their lives for freedoms here and abroad. It's a big deal... and unfortunately we take it for granted a lot. So heres a BIG THANK YOU to anybody who has served and risked or given their life for the freedoms we enjoy.


We celebrated pretty low key today. It's like 7 billion degrees in Atlanta so we spent some time at a local fountain getting soaked.

Then we spent the evening grilling out and hanging out with our cool neighbors...


There was chocolate cake (2 bites for Meron to match the 2 bites of dinner she ate... SIGH)...


and LOTS of disciplining (Chrissy - Meron doesn't even seem remotely threatened or worried about you!)...


After dinner we busted out the wagon full of water balloons and the lines were drawn...


It was parents...


versus kids in the cul-de-sac...

It was a short-lived battle and I think it was a tie. Rematch to be had soon...

Thankful today for brave soldiers, cool neighbors and a country where we are free to act as crazy as we do...
