We really make this a priority in our family. We go every year (last year and one other year when it was icing are the exceptions, the hubs went for us both years) with the goal to teach our children what this is all about. I want them to understand the sacrifice, not only of those who have lost their lives, but of all who have served our great country.
I want my children to walk across a busy restaurant to thank a serviceman or servicewoman for their service. As of now, everyone but the baby does this. He will learn soon enough.
A nice gentleman came and put this jacket over him because it was a little chilly. His head wasn't completely covered, it just looks like it from this angle. HA!
