I wish you could have seen the smiles that were at our house when we found out that we were going to be at Grandpa and Grandma Hager's house for Memorial Day! We usually get to help put up flags, eat the best cookies in the world, play many different outdoor games, drive Grandpa's tractors, read books with Grandma, hear many of the stories of our family history... and this year was no different!
:: We get up early in the morning to put up flags ::
:: We girls get the job of hooking the flags onto the polls ::
:: Mommy ::
:: The guys had the harder job of taking these huge posts and putting them in the holes. The goal was to try and get them in place before blowing away ::
:: Uncle Duane, the faithful driver ::
:: Susanna ::
:: Nathanael and Charissa ::
:: Go Huskers ::
:: Charissa was so excited to be able to help put up the smaller flag ::
:: Grandpa riding to the other cemetery on the much wanted seat ::
:: It was so pretty looking at all the flags up ::
:: Grandpa ::
:: Our wonderful Grandparents ::
:: Our wonderful Parents ::
:: Susanna and I ::
Thank you Grandpa and many others who have fought and are still fighting for our freedom!
"I will make you a great nation; I will bless you
And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing!"
