That afternoon we watched a video of the Memorial that was dedicated to the 238th Engineer Combat Battalion. That is the group Gary's papa was with in World War II.
We are so thankful we live in this country and for the sacrifices that have been made to make us free!
We did enjoy our day together. The girls played on the slip and slide and we went to the new Nature Park in New Bern that is about 3 miles or so from our house. We LOVED it! Was absolutely gorgeous! We got to see lizards, birds, turtles, ducks, fish, spiders, mosquitos :-(, geese, deer, and more! They have great hiking trails and a gorgeous dock. It's about a 1/2 mile hike through the woods to the water. The hike is awesome.....wide paths, beautiful foilage, a small bridge, sounds and smells of outdoors! We fished a little but didn't catch anything. We really enjoyed being out there....very secluded.
