Memorial Day Memories

Every year we spend Memorial Day in Houston. The weekend is close to my grandfather's birthday so it is a good time to visit him and spend time in a fun city. This weekend was a fun one for lots of reasons...

We celebrated my grandfather's 92nd birthday---which is actually this week. He is still going strong at 92. he has a razor sharp memory and is really inspirational.

We also saw my sweet friend Michelle. Michelle and I have been friends for a long time and she is an awesome person. She is an amazing mom to two kiddos and is working on her PhD while also working. I am inspired by her and although we don't see each other very much, we always pick up right where we left off.On Memorial Day we went to the Museum of Natural Science. We saw an exhibit on the Terracotta Warriors. It was very impressive. The warriors are actually figures, dating from 210 BC. They were discovered in 1974 by some local farmers in a province in China somewhat near the municipality Hannah was born in. It was a very fascinating exhibit.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day! God bless the families of those who have served and continue to serve our country!

We actually got to see the Terracota Warriors in China 4 years ago when we visited there on vacation. It is a truly amazing sight!!
