Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Memorial Day Weekend! What a wonderful, HOT time in H'ville! Record high temperatures predicted and records being broken daily...needless to say, we've planned a lazy weekend. Went to see the Avengers on Friday afternoon. Had to wait until our free ticket from lots of trips to the movies was valid! Still have to squeeze in MIB III tomorrow. We are just addicted to movies. Savannah spent the night Friday. We usually take her to the local car show which she loves because of the kids activities, but it was just too hot. We took her to the Adventure Science Center, our children's museum, on Saturday. She had a ball but grandad was pooped. He had to to chase her up and down the climbing area in the center!

Today was the Indy 500 and the Coca Cola 600! I have always loved open wheel racing and over the past years have learned to love NASCAR. Last year we got to go to the Indy 500 and so glad we weren't planning this year since they had record temps too! We've been to Indy 500, Daytona 500, and Bristol...we've been to Monaco but haven't seen the Grand Prix of Monaco...missed it by just a few days. Our bucket list is getting really short, so we need to think up some more fun things to do!

Just a few more days til we head to Florida with the Ledwell's. This is now our annual trip...would be great if we could ever convince Chris and Jenn to join us but we'll see them in July. I just love going to the beach, even if we mostly stay on the balcony or the pool deck and look at the beach. Can't wait to get to Dusty's and eat lots of oysters and Dewey's in Destin for fried shrimp. We found a condo in Destin we want, but no movement on the RV so I guess we'll wait...we really don't need both!

I know I've promised retirement tips in every blog entry, but I really don't have a tip this time other than to thank all our active and retired military for their service to our country. Because of them, we can sit in the comfort of our air conditioned home and watch racing...or cook out with friends...or go to the movies...and mostly just celebrate the freedom that we have to live large and safe! Have a great rest of the weekend!
