To Remember & Honor September 11, 2011

I feel like this caption should be..."Ronald Reagan, he's my man.  If he can't do it, no one can."  I think that sounds cornballs, but it came to mind, it's early, and I'm only on cup of coffee #2.

When I’m up in years and my hair is gray
When my kids no longer need my help all day

It is then I hope to make my dreams come true
Volunteering as a docent giving tours to you

Teaching your children about great leaders and history
So the events of time won’t seem such a mystery

If I could spend my days at Reagan Library
Going to work would be a joy; I would not tarry

But until that time comes, it is for regular visits I strive
To that WONDERFUL Place on the Hill at 40 Presidential Drive!

We spent the 10th Anniversary of September 11th at the Reagan Library this year participating in The 6th Annual Freedom Walk.  What a GREAT event it was!  It wasn't just a walk, but a time to remember the victims of September 11th, honor our troops and veterans, celebrate Heroes, and enjoy music from The 3D Marine Aircraft Wing Band and the CBU Male Chorale.
Today's post will be mostly photos from our day.  I'm grateful for this experience to share with our family. 

Waiting for the shuttle to take us up on the hill.  "Mom, hurry, the sun is SO bright!"  So is your future my son!

Growing up so fast!

Bagpipes...make me think of my dad.  He would have been crying.

I'm not quite sure what is going on here.
Just because they were cute!
I may be behind, but the view is great!  What a bunch of cuties!
