We took in the annual Mosinee Memorial Day parade...but, nothing could compare to having the swat team, in full gear, numerous police cars, a van full of fully geared up men, and an ambulance preparing for who knows what outside of our front door this morning!! After that, seeing a fire truck and an ambulance in the parade seemed like small potatoes ;) Good thing we went to see Bob and Karen after taking in the parade or it may have been a bust!! ;)
On our way to Mosinee this morning I told the kids a little bit about Memorial Day...
as Jack hopped out of the car, Bob was there to get him and the first words out of Jack's mouth were:
"thank you for fighting for our country, Bob"
Yes, thank you for fighting for our country, Bob...and Will and to all 3 of my grandfather's. I'm proud to say that we come from a long legacy of men who gave up their time and put their lives on the line and on hold to fight for our country!
