Memorial Day Weekend 2012

First I’d like to start by saying how thankful my family and I are to all of the troops who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country and our freedoms.  All of us know, have known, or will know somebody who is in the military and we can all relate…

As for some of the freedoms that have been afforded by the service men and women that is the turn my weekend took.  My brother graduated San Jose State and is off to more school in the Pharmaceutical Studies field in Southern California.  It was great to see all of my family and I really enjoyed getting together.  My parents had a taquero (guy who comes to your home and makes tacos) and a full bar.  There were interesting stories spun by family members, and I’m not sure all were true…

Sunday started a little slow, I’m sure you can guess why… My wife, two sons, and myself went to a pancake house in Fremont.  My wife swears by the banana pancakes at the Original Pancake House in Fremont.  After the sugar overload I attempted to rest when we got home.  My two boys then decided it was baseball time and dragged me off of the couch to play some ball.  After an hour of joining in on some baseball I was able to convince them they had enough.  We then got ready for our local little league’s Movie night.  It’s always a great night out with hot dogs, popcorn, and drinks provided by the league as we watch a baseball movie outdoors on one of our fields.  It does get cold, but somehow we always make it through and enjoy the time with our little league family.

Graduation, little baseball, and even the work I will do today are all afforded by our troops that have served in our military to preserve all that is good about this country of ours.  I am a thankful individual for all you do and sacrifice for people you do not even know.

In Memory of our fallen troops, enjoy your Memorial Day…
