Girls Trip Part 2

How can life keep sling shotting by.  Already a month has slipped by since the great girls trip back east.  So I am going to keep this short....the stories are many and the memories even more.

I love the time spent with my sisters and our mom...seeing family, meeting more, reconnecting with friends and making new ones.

I will let some pictures speak for themselves.

a Side Trip to Remember Memorial Day

Memorial Day has come & gone.
But we will never forget those that have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.  Our heartfelt thanks go to them and their families.

I want to share with you our Memorial Day service that we attended.  I searched for a local tribute, and and there were many in our county.  We chose Santa Margarita for a number of reasons, mostly because... not far, small community and local atmosphere.
They held their service at the local Santa Margarita cemetery located 1 mile east on Hwy 58, one of our favorite motorcycle roads, so it was an easy decision. 
There was a fly over planned over different services by some WWII planes from the Estrella War Bird Museum in Paso Robles, CA.  And they always thrill off we went.
Here are a few shots to share of this great day.

Thank you for your service men & women of our military.  And to the local Scout Troop 123.
