Monday was Memorial Day here in the states. Most people only know that most people will get the day off. The real reason we celebrate Memorial Day is to commemorate U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country.
My day was spent with my dad. My dad lives over 13 hours and almost 900 miles away so it was great to be able to spend it with him. My step-mom and my sisters spent the whole weekend with us as well. We had a big cook-out on Saturday and Sunday we got up and shot handguns before the guys rode Harleys. Yes, it sounds very redneck which is really funny because we (especially me) aren’t redneck.
I love shooting my handgun though. My daughter came with us and shot for the first time and she liked it too. She was shooting some revolver that looked like a cowboy’s gun. I was shooting my .357 Magnum. The Harley’s were both my sisters boyfriend’s and I was glad to see them go. Too loud and obnoxious for my taste.
We had a little too much to drink over the weekend (not me but definitely my hubby – whew!), we ate and ate and then ate some more (try a 2.5 inch steak) and we talked and laughed a lot. It was the first time I had seen my dad in 2 years but hopefully it won’t be that long before the next time.
So, how did you spend your weekend?
