Memorial day

As soon as school got out on Friday, our crew packed up the minivan and headed to Holden Beach to spend Memorial Day weekend with our friends. They were generous enough to host us at the beach.
It was such a blessing to get out of town and enjoy the salty air and water as well as their company.
Almost immediately after arriving, the kids peeled off clothing and got into bathing suits. The dock was calling them! They used the fishing poles and cast nets almost all weekend to catch bait shrimp, fish, and even a baby squid.
We came back to Raleigh a little bit sunburned, a little bit tired, and totally rejuvenated.  
I am so thankful that we have Memorial Day as a chance to pause and reflect on the freedoms we have in America because of the great sacrifice made by so many. 
We are blessed in so many ways, but good friends and freedom have to be some of His biggest.
