Happy Memorial Day

Whew! I'm exhausted!

We just got back from an incredible trip to Philadelphia.

Here's a Memorial Day Appropriate photo from the trip.

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington Park, Philadelphia.

Kinda creepy walking around so many unmarked graves.

Chunky thought it was kind of thoughtless to be walking all around them...but then we explained it was even more thoughtless to go digging them up and was easier just to consecrate the whole area instead.

More less solemn pictures to follow when I have a moment!

Happy Memorial day to you and your boys!

I didn't know that they had tombs for unknown there in Philadelphia.

Love, Mom

I love cemeteries (probably has a lot to do with the ones here in NO)

I work in the one of the buildings that surround that park. I love it . The whole park was once a cemetary. The graves have been moved and it's now a monument. It's a bit disconcerting nonetheless.

Chunky is a very thoughtful kid!

Lucky you to get to go to Philadelphia - I've always wanted to visit there! Did you get to see the Liberty Bell?
