Last Saturday we went to the Des Moines Farmer’s Market. In addition to all of the produce and food vendors, there was a display of military equipment. Here Michael and I are standing next to a Black Hawk helicopter, the kind Michael’s Uncle Jesse rides in for his missions in Iraq.

Jesse, we’re thinking of you and praying for your safety, especially this Memorial Day weekend. Thank you for serving.  We couldn’t be more appreciative and proud of you and all the soldiers!
