Memorial Day and A Simple Weekend

Today we stop to honor and remember our heroes here in America.  My own brother is US Air Force so I am sensitive to the importance of the day.  Thank you,Veterans, for your sacrifices that insure our freedom.

The long weekend isn't over yet but it has been fantastic so far.  I started it off by making a glorious flower arrangement out of peonies, roses and alstroemeria.  It just makes everything feel more special and festive.

In our family, we are all about gathering for meals.  My kids are pretty good about food (although they can be picky at times).

One of our favorite things to eat is tilapia.  I paired this yummy fish with spinach tortellini and bacon.  This weekend isn't about complicated recipes or anything gourmet.  I am just enjoying my family.

For dessert I decided to do something a little bit different.  I took those store bought sponge cakes and filled them with chocolate, topped them with vanilla ice cream and garnished with chocolate covered raspberries.  Yummy!

Both of our kids have recently become more interesting in bike riding.  I know this sounds funny, but we don't live on a street that is conducive to their learning to ride.  We have to go over to local schools or parks for them to practice.  We just bought them new bikes so it's time.

We finished off last evening with a s'more roast.   As you can tell, we have had a blast these past few evenings and today we will continue just enjoying each other and doing simple things that create great memories.
