We have been so busy leading our lives, like  many of you.  Running around from one thing to another, to another (and another,…) and I am just trying to keep it all together! Not sure how well I am doing {but that may be another blog for another time!}

My family always looks forward to Memorial Weekend.  Three days off from school and work, our Annual Drive-In Movie night, BBQ’s. Setting that internal clock that summer is right around the corner.

{We always fly our American flag, but this weekend I will hang our bunting on the porch railing where it will stay until the 4th of July.  There really is nothing quite a beautiful as the  Red, White and Blue waving in the summer breeze…}

This morning,  Buddy and Mr. Cabana left the house early.  Not to go off on some exciting adventure together.  They went to pay their respects to those that have given us the ultimate gift so that we may have the FREEDOM to live our lives, BBQ’s and all.

I am so PROUD of my son for taking the time to honor the Veteran’s in our local cemetery by placing flags with other Boy Scouts.  {He also led the flag ceremony for the raising of the cemetery flag. I know, I am GUSHING with pride, can’t help it!!!}

So while I have a pineapple and Malibu rum drink and watch a movie outside with friends tonight, I will also be REMEMBERING  this picture above.  It has become one of my favorites of this amazing young man in my life.

Happy Memorial Weekend!

Until next time,

Butterscotch Lady
