Memorial Day 2012

Today is Memorial Day – the day when we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. There is so little that we can say – other than Thank You. We are forever grateful.

And the Red Team is thankful that the hu-dad bush-hogged the field this week to make the walking easier.

    Happy Memorial Day! I figured getting through the tall grass was just another Herd adventure! 😉
