yes! that is a piece of licorice sticking out of Ashley's nose! silly girl!
On the evening before Sept 11th, we headed up to Freeman Park where an orchestra was playing at the park along with the local firefighters playing bagpipes in memory of their fallen comrades. We took a pizza and ate it on the grass while we listened to the great tribute and remembered the impact of that awful day 10 years ago.
Then we took the kids to the Vietnam Memorial there and Derek explained a little to them about war and patriotism (just LOVE my husband's patriotism and zest for this country!!)
We love this country and are so grateful for all those who have fought and continue to fight to protect our freedom! God bless America!
