10 Magnificent Ideas to Celebrate Memorial Day

                                 

Memorial Day means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. In our home Memorial Day is a time that we remember our loved ones we've lost and celebrate their lives and also celebrate our soldiers who have put their lives on the line for our country and our freedom.

We usually have a big cookout and decorate up a storm with red, white and blue. My family has always been very patriotic and I know my mom and grandparents would approve.

Here are 10 magnificent ideas to help make your Memorial Day memorable.

Tour the Inside of our Tornado Shelter


                                                       
Last week was a bit scary. A huge tornado was headed towards our area. Usually the tornadoes go right around us but the winds, this time around, were crazy. The house was shaking. For the first time in 3 years we went down to our storm cellar and waited out the storm for about 45 minutes. It's a good size and needs some tlc. It looked really nice 3 years ago.

*These pictures are after the storm and mess from the other day.*
