Today we celebrated Memorial Day in a nice little RV park in South Dakota. It was a little chilly and windy, but warm enough to play baseball outside with the neighbor kids and grill some brats for a Jarvis-style cookout.
Lily and I cooked corn on the cob in the rice cooker, while Adam watched the boys and grilled the brats.
They were super messy, quite melty, and really not very pretty, to be honest. We made six but only had time to photograph two of them, because they melted so quickly. Still, the kids oohed and ahhed over them as if they were the most Pinteresty of desserts, and they were delicious! 😄
The kids are getting older, so we made an extra effort this year to teach them about what really makes this a special day–that we are not only celebrating being free Americans, but we are celebrating the lives of those who have laid down their very lives for that freedom.
May we never forget and may we never take it lightly!
