Memorial Day 2023

 We saw this in the front yard of a house nearby.


                                                      Then we came across this small memorial.





They had a white board where you could write down the names of those who should be remembered.


And guess where this was. Right in the middle of the Lowe's parking lot! How great was that!


For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.

Such a cute and fun display. The trees turn red for some reasons?

This is amazing, the fact that it is in a Lowes parking lot I mean.. looking at the names written is heartbreaking, knowing those people lost their loved ones. the boots at the cross are also heart breaking. The perfect tribute and one of the best i have ever seen.

That was a nice Memorial that Lowe's set up. I like the idea of the white board where you could write the names of your loved ones to be remembered. The flag with the golden leaves is a pretty photo. Looks like Autumn. So many interesting things you see around the neighborhood, Ginny.

Ginny, it took only about 20 minutes to put the castle together. But since it was a miniature, the pieces were so small and it was harder to put together. I kept finding pieces that fit here and there, and Nel did the same. It was fun, and we finally put it together. I hope Mia hasn't knocked it down since haha.
