So for the last five days the kids and I have been walking. I did a lot of walking in Bolivia so it has been great walking at home. My son has been an almost constant walking companion but my daughter has only walked with us a few timed.

This is my son standing on a light pole in the elementary school parking lot! Through our walks we have discovered a beautiful veterans memorial near our neighborhood.

My son and I took this selfie during one of our walks at the memorial site.

I love this picture because it shows the whole memorial. Each section represents a different branch of the service.

This is a closeup of the war cross.  

I took this picture because it reminds me of my ex. He spent 12 years in the US Air Force. 

Of course the US Navy reminds me of my dad.  My dad spent 10 years on active duty and 24 years in the reserves. I feel really close to my dad when I visit this memorial. It is so nice to have such a special place to visit so close to home. I will really miss my kids and our walks when they are with their dad this weekend.
