The Schwartz's vs Memorial Day Traditions

Ah, Memorial Day, the official kick off to summer.  Sarah's excited, are you?

What a special treat this year as our Schwartz branch has grown.  Sarah joined us at our two traditional Memorial Day events.  On Saturday we went to the Brooks' for their annual cook out.  Then on memorial day we gathered at Ma and Pa Schwartz's house for our 9th annual Memorial Day cook out.  I'm not quite sure if everyone realizes we've done it every year but we sure have (at least as best as I can recall).  Our first memorial day cook out at the Schwartz house was quite eventful.  Have you ever had  frost bite, in Memphis, in May?  Well I have it was on this day 9 years ago.  (Who's up for a round of see how long you can keep your hand in the ice cream salt bucket?)  And since then we have gathered as a family to laugh, grill, and eat ice cream.

Now, funny story about how we got Sarah's memorial day picture taken.  She was being super cranky, and uncooperative, so we turned on the Little Einsteins theme song on you tube so she would hopefully smile.  Here are the zombie baby out takes where she is obviously starring at the laptop screen.  I especially like the one where she's trying to look at me and cut her eyes to the screen.  And the other one I really just want you to notice the fantastically adorable hair bow our friend made that matches her dress perfectly!
