Memorial Day Weekend is often a big weekend in the Ayer house. First we reflect back on Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, as a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. No matter your political views on the current situations in the world, we should always take time to remember those that go to serve our country. It is the protection their service provides that enables us to continue to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country.
The second reason this Memorial Day Weekend was a big weekend was because it featured the running of the KeyBank Vermont City Marathon & Relay. Friends and fellow photographers of ours from Boston ran in the race -- meaning we had a house full of visitors for the weekend and that, naturally, means fun! fun! fun! Janice and Jeremy John ran in the race, while we were blessed to watch their two adorable children -- my two sweet loves. They called Linda, "Auntie Linda," and Warren, "that guy," -- sooo cute! Not wanting to miss out on the fun, Janice's parents (Grandma Alice and Grandpa Brown), also drove up for the weekend, as well as Janice's sister, Laureen! A true house full, but we had such a wonderful time!
