Closing ceremonies

The parade moves indoors

"Make it one for Washington and all his Gallant men ..." Charlie Zahm

To inspire young men, and, well, just men, to stand strong and be leaders and defenders of the those in need, Doug attempts 150 push ups. 

Doug makes 150!!!!!

OK! For me, this was probably the biggest highlight. Mr. Philips gave us the honor of participating in the closing ceremonies with a couple fiddle tunes. Yeee haw!!!!

One more dream fulfilled for my father, playing as a family ...

I was so proud of my brothers who just went up and with really minimal preparation ... did awsome! Thanks guys!

Ok! Ok! What doesn't this guy do ... well?

Playing music together as a family is awesome! I love it. :-)

And it looks like Matthew is using the same tin whistle I have! It's a good one, only I think soon I'll have blown on mine to death. It's time for a new one!

150 pushups? Mr. Phillips is now my new inspiration.

So did you join him Michael?

I joined him in my heart. But ... I do have a new inspiration. :-)
