Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend we were invited to join our good friends the Waters’ and the DeBenedets at a beautiful cabin in the Sequoia National Park. We drove down on Friday morning and spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out, enjoying some drinks, and cooking some of those awesome street tacos my hubby makes. I felt terrible that everyone had to put up with my post-Alcatraz cold all weekend – I alternated between Dayquil and Nyquil as appropriate and tried to contain myself.

On Saturday, armed with Dayquil, we headed out for a little hike. The view at Panoramic Point was stunning – you could see the whole valley, including Hume Lake:

I loved the cabin – it’s a real log cabin, with all of the amenities, with the exception of WiFi and cell service. It was kind of nice to be disconnected from the world for a little bit! My favorite part was the gigantic fireplace – we made s’mores every night!

Finally, I want to reflect on the reason for having today off… it’s not just another day off work and a chance to spend time with family and friends. We need to remember all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that we have the wonderful freedoms that many of us take for granted every day. So thank you to all of our service members who gave their lives, to all those who have served or are currently serving, and to their families, who also sacrifice. Happy Memorial Day!
