Remembering ,Water Fun, GW ~ Bloggy Award.

Ok I had a great extended weekend! I am hoping that all of you did as well. We spent Memorial Day @ Joe Pool Lake. 
I will be sharing this@Mommy Head Adventures
Where Blog Hoppin is made simple!!!

Shan and I visited her family for Memorial Day festivities at the lake Joe Pool Lake and some of her friends decided to join us it was sheer bliss but then togetherness always is.Swimming ,eating, boating and water games.Speaking of games, the objective for this one was"Thumbs Up Thumbs Down!" If you want the driver to go faster you put your thumbs up and to go slower you must put the thumb down. lol Well not a soul wanted to see my thumb it was totally cramping their style! lol lol  I just laughed and screamed my head off.!
Shan and her nephew were all thumbs up but me...
...Thumbs down!!!!

Just plain fun!We were being pulled by a boat appropriately named "The Annie Jo" In remembrance of Shans Mom who is not with us."I Love Her Family" And I loove how they love one another its refreshing to see.
As a way to honor veterans and the current enlisted men and women Shans sister had me to hang flags in front of  the boat docks that we were using so that we'd be reminded of the sacrifices that others make for us.I thought it was the perfect touch.
 I couldn't help thinking that there were people that couldn't enjoy their loved ones because they have passed on or are off defending our country and maintaining our freedoms. I  Thank You for your service I am ever so grateful.
On our way home we decided to stop by Goodwill in Garland Texas wooo hooo! Shan was super sweet for this because she was tired and exhausted but she sat patiently in the car while I shopped.*sigh* I just Love her. They had lots to choose from I hope you enjoy my new picks as well as a few older ones.
