Veterans Day

I am a LiTtLe behind on my blogging. We are trying to get ready for our vacation, and I forgot how much you have to back when you have a baby in the mix. No more whimsical, last minute vacations; this has taken serious planning and strategizing. Traveling supplies, snacks, & quiet car toys + 8 days worth of food, clothes, diapers, wipes, & beach toys + how am I suppose to fit a highchair in the trunk?? Oi.

Last week we were able to celebrate Veterans Day by attending the parade downtown. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach my children about the sacrifices that are made by our military men and women so that we can live in a country where our opportunities are limitless, where men and women are respected equally, and where safety and choice are both a privilege and a right. I am honored that someone would sacrifice their time and their energy to ensure MY freedoms, and I am grateful that we have a day to honor them.

Have a great trip! If you need a portable high chair, I have one. Just let me know. It won't take up much space at all. :)
