The weekend before D-Day, we took a trip out to Bedford to visit the D-Day Memorial.
Avery’s friend Kayla came with us, and we went on a walking tour of the memorial. The children listened to every word the guide said….. HA!
Kayla pushed Avery in her wheelchair. Then Avery pushed Kayla in her wheelchair!
Avery tried out her legs a little and walked around for a couple of minutes.
Avery really enjoyed rolling down this ramp, which maybe wasn’t the most respectful thing, but she had a blast!
My flag, Arthur Tedder, originally of the Dorset Regiment (my home county), and my boy admiring the waterworks.
The boys by the name of their Daddy’s home state.
Then Oliver found a cicada…
Oliver really didn’t want to leave the cicada….
It was only when I went down the slope, hid behind a wall, and jumped up to surprise him that Oliver forgot about the amazing bug and ran over to laugh at me!
We had a really enjoyable morning, and while the children may not be old enough to have really understood what it was about, it was a great reminder to Gabe and I of the sacrifices people made to secure the freedoms we enjoy.
