Memorial Day was a fun day for the Dooner Family. We went to Pinkerton Park in the morning. Jax loved swinging and playing on the slides. He saw lots of doggies. After our trip to the park we had lunch at home and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon. Our casual dinner consisted of yummy burgers from the grill, corn on the cob and tater tots. Jax got to sit in his new Mickey Mouse chair while we dined on our deck. It was a fun evening.
Although Jax is too young to understand the true meaning of Memorial Day, John and I discussed ways to begin teaching him. We want him to understand the importance of the day and to know that it's not "just a day off for Daddy". We are grateful for all of the men and women that have served and are serving in our military to protect our country.
