We also went to iparty and got the paper goods. We are adapting some stuff that was pirate themed and it is pretty easy to make it go with his theme. Rob says Skulduggery's colors are black white and purple so that is the basic color theme. Rob wanted a pinata so we got a skeleton one and are replacing the pirate hat on it with the top hat Rob wore to our Kentucky Derby party. LOL
Then we came home and I got a lot of house chores done, and the kids swept the deck and the driveway. Did lunch and went hiking which was a blast. By noon the storms had blown by and it was perfect weather. So so much fun.
I know this is a day to be mindful of those who gave their lives in the line of duty and truly I am. I have friends whose sons are serving and have had other friends who have served in the past. I am proud that my grandfather was a veteren and that a commemorative flag is placed at his stone each year. But in the midst of that gratitude is my greatful thanks for a beautiful day with the family I love.
