My plans for Memorial Day Weekend are Friday night my oldest grandson graduates from high school. We are so proud of him. The rest of the weekend is up in the air and to when we will do what but on the agenda are some quilting for me, time with all 11 grandchildren, and taking a road trip with no destination in mind-just go where the road leads.
