Memorial Day 2010

On Sunday we went up to Brigham City to visit the graves of Scott's grandparents.  The kids were very sweet and said many nice things about their Great Grandma E.  They miss her and often worry about how Grandpa Great is doing without her.

We thought that by going up on Sunday, we would have fewer crowds.  We were wrong.  It was still pretty busy.

The morning of Memorial Day, Kat and I headed up to visit Doc and GG's grave.  This was the first year we have ever done this.  I think it might have to do with that this is the first year they have had a headstone.  It is kind of that "If you build it they will come" mentality.  So, we stopped on our way and grabbed a flower and were touched that two of our family friends had already decorated Doc and GG's grave.  (The early morning sun and my phone camera wasn't a great combination for pictures).

It was a beautiful memorial day and I truly miss those whose graves we visited.
