HappyMemorial Day from the gals At The Picket Fence! We thought it would be fun to share some of the perfectly patriotic posts (say that three times fast…grin!) that were linked up to this past Inspiration Friday! They are perfect ideas to inspire you for the 4th of July as well! We are always so amazed at the talent that stops by here at the fence each week…come take a peek. features
Paula of Sweet Pea created this darling Memorial Wreath…out of a tennis racket!
Sharla of The House at Bluebird Lane created this Betsy Ross inspired dresser makeover! If this doesn’t say “all american” we don’t know what does!
Maggie of Little Miss Maggie created this darling Liberty Garden Bucket. It has the perfect vintage feel and could be used all summer long!
Jennifer of Hey Little Mother shared a Perfectly Patriotic Dessert: A Red White and Blue Trifle. Perfect for a hot summer holiday!
Mary of Home is Where the Boat is is giving us a “stem to stern” tour of her house boat all decked out for Memorial Day! You will not believe the attention to details and her photos are pure gorgeous! Pay her a visit to get tons of amazing patriotic ideas!
and of course Susan of Munchkin Munchies never, ever, ever ceases to amaze us with her mad confectionery skills! Check out these Double Decker Flag Cookies she created.
And let us not forget “why” we celebrate Memorial Day. While we are enjoying our cook-outs, concerts and boating excursions…there are real men and women sacrificing their lives for these freedoms! We honor our troops and say…thank you to those who stand on that line faithfully everyday!
And….this year, Memorial Day is not just a day for remembering. It is also a day for celebrating! Vanessa’s son Ian turns 9 today and we want to wish him a very Happy Birthday! What can we say about this boy?
He is a wonderfully curious, Lego builder extraordinaire, first place high-jump winner, who protects his little sister while also teaching her to make tooting sounds on her arm. He is fascinated about how things work and is on a constant fact finding mission. He is hilariously funny and he keeps everyone on their toes. He loves God and his friends and cries when others cry. He made Robb and Vanessa a mommy and daddy and has been a source of unending joy to his entire family. Every day with Ian is like getting to open up a present, never knowing what surprise awaits you!
We love you Ian!
