It's tradition in my Dad's family that on Memorial Day, we all get together with my dad's side of the family and go to the cemetery. My dad's brothers and his parents are there, as well as other family on my dad's side. And every year we follow our visit to the cemetery with a BBQ and swimming at my parents house. The guys usually golf in the morning too, but since I don't go to that I don't have pictures.
This has always been a good memory of mine, back to when I was a little girl. The family is getting so big now with all the cousins getting married and having kids, but it's such a fun time to reconnect with them all.
Whoever said cemetery's couldn't be fun? Here some of the kids are enjoy a game of follow the leader.
I'm trying to explain to Caden about some of his relatives. I didn't know my grandparents or uncles, but it was nice to share with Caden what I knew about them.
