This year our celebration of Memorial Day was different than usual. We decided to have Tia's graduation party at the same time. We invited all of Tia's aunts and uncles and their families. We held it at "The Homestead" (Derek's parent's house) because it was rainy and there would be more room. The weather did stay nice enough to barbeque outside, which I did.
I liked these things about the day:
1. I enjoyed barbequeing outside because because the grill kept me warm so I could enjoy the otherwise chilly sunshine that was there at noon.
2. Everyone was good company and was kind. Nobody even whined when I forgot all of the vegetables that people like on hamburgers.
3. Derek had us all sing one patriotic song America in memory of those who have given their lives and service for our freedom. He also had us sing another song Families Can be Together Forever in memory of the family members that we love who are no longer with us. What good singers we have in our family!
4. Derek talked a little about our good Tia and she opened a present and then she taught us all a dance. Here are some pictures.
