Memorial Day Barbecue

Memorial Day has always been a day to grill out, swim, play in the sun, spend time with friends and family, have fun, and most importantly remember the fallen soldiers who died defending our country.
Our friend Sherrie Burton currently is a single mom with her husband deployed to Bahrain. She is a TROOPER and really hanging in there. We all met at her house for a Memorial day hangout/barbecue. It was tons of fun, the kids all had a blast and we are grateful she allowed everyone to crash her house! Here are a few/ton pictures from that fun day! Thanks again Sherrie!

Ethan and Mackay (Sherries son) jumping on their tramp!

Yep, that's our grill! ha ha! We drove it to Sherries and lucky Darren got to 'man the grill' in the lovely heat! But the food was delish! Thanks babe!

Cute Andrew

Brooke did a really great family home evening on Gratitude!

After her lesson, she had the kids color a thank you card to Taylor (Sherrie's husband who is deployed) to tell him Happy Memorial Day and to thank him for his service. The kid had fun coloring and drawing flags and using the fun stickers! Then we went outside to take family pictures to send along with the thank you cards!

Back outside we went! Darren was getting the camera ready to take the family pictures, so he had me moving and doing all sorts of tricks! ha ha! :)

The Bingham family: Loni, baby Tyce, Ada, and Debi (Rick was gone also, thankfully just to training for a few weeks, but not deployed, although she's done her fair share of deployments also!) yuck!

Our Family

The Davies Family. She is ready to 'Pop' any second! infact, they made a quick trip to the hospital and back during the barbecue. False alarm! ;)

F.H.E Treat: Smores! Yummy!

We had a wonderful Memorial Day! Thank you again Sherrie for letting us crash your pad and for the great company we all had together! Great friends, great times! ;)

I think memorial day barbecues are one of the greatest American traditions :)

What a fun set of pictures! We miss you guys in Galveston Ward (yes, years later, we are still missing you!), but are glad to be able to keep up on your lives.
