We decided to go to Louisville, Kentucky during Memorial Day weekend. My husband has not had this weekend off of work for 7 years, so we thought we would do something fun. Benjamin had a blast. We did the amusement park and the water park. It was in the upper 80s and beautiful outside.

At work were are doing something for the community. We are decorating a Valentines Day boxes for the kids at a local hospital. I thought it was a very good idea. It brought back memories of being a kid.
It is hard to believe that it has been six years ago today. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was a typical day in the life of a college student. I was waking up and getting ready for class. I didn’t have a class until around 10:30, so I was slowing getting up. When I turned my T.V. on, like I did every morning, only this morning was different, they were talking about a plane hitting th World Trade Center. I could not believe my eyes. What was so stunning about this was…we had just visiting New York and stayed at the Marriott hotel at the World Trade Center!!!! How could something like this happen. Innocent people losing their lives. Heroic people taking their own lives to save others, like the people of Flight 93. Everytime I watch that movie, tears come to my eyes!!! All of the Firefighters, police, and bystanders on the streets helping people they didn’t even know. It’s amazing what us americans will do for each other in the timeof a tragedy. That is why it is so great to be an American. You hear of all of the 911 calls made from the Twin Towers and I think to myself, what if that would have been me? As I watched the TV that morning, I remember seeing what looked like bodies falling out of the windows of the World Trade Center. It saddens me just thinking about it. People taking their own lives before the enemy could. To all of the victims and families of the September 11, 2001 tragedy, you will never be forgotten. Everyone needs to take a moment today and reflect…
I think Lee Greenwood and Alan Jackson say it all…

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.
And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,Well, there’s pride in every American heart,and it’s time to stand and say:
I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
I think think this video says it all, as well…
Where were you when the World Stopped Turning

What a fun weekend we had. We went down to Birmingham, AL to the Renaissance Hotel at Ross Bridge with my parents for two nights. It was beautiful!!! It was relaxing too. The hotel looks like a big castle. Benjamin had the most fun because the pool had a slide. Griff and I enjoyed it because they had live entertainment poolside and a nice waterfall to hear in the background. Here are some pictures of the weekend.
Happy Valentines Day Everyone!!!
