With Memorial Day fast approaching, I have been thinking about how we will celebrate the holiday. I love to bring out the red, white and blue and reflect on those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our amazing country.
I love displaying the American Flag
I am not sure if we will have a house full or if it will be just a table for two. I pulled up some photos to share of past celebrations from my photo library.
Of course there will be lots of flowers
We love grilling
Jim loves to cook out, I love for Jim to cook out!
Baby back ribs
Homemade ice cream
And just in, fresh peaches for making peach cobbler
So, do tell, what will you do to celebrate Memorial Day weekend?
Heartfelt thanks for those serving in the military, past and present.
Thank you for stopping by, I love and appreciate your visits.
