I had a very busy, but relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately, I was too lazy to take very many pics. I did manage to snap a few at my dad’s.
We camped on Janet and Richard’s (James’ mom and dad’s) property Friday night. Richard cooked dinner and breakfast over a campfire. The food was delicious. There’s a certain flavor that only a good campfire can give pork chops and bacon and eggs. James and the girls slept in a tent in the front yard!! I figure I have one more year of taking Anjelia home and sleeping in our own beds before I will have to join them in the tent! I think next year we’ll have a two room tent with a tunnel. There’s just not enough room in one tent for the six of us! Thank you Mom and Dad D for a wonderful time.
The next morning we went swimming and then headed home to get ready for a night out with adults. Tori babysat for us while we went out to dinner and a movie with Carl, Mary, Jeff, Keri, Abby and Mike. We saw the newest X-Men movie. It was very entertaining. James and I really needed a night out. I think I could use another date night with James!
Sunday we went to my Dad’s for barbeque. He fixed me the best grilled cheeseburger I’ve had in years! My dad and Connie are basically raising her two grandsons. The girls have a lot of fun playing with them. We spent several hours four wheeling around the property. James took me for a ride clear up the big hill to the back of the property. It was really fun and the view of the countryside is GORGEOUS. Lydia told James that it was romantic for him to take me there! Girls!!! I wish I’d snapped a pic of the view, but I didn’t take my camera.
My dad and Lydia.
Daddy, Elaina, and Anjelia. The girls had a blast!
James and Baby. I fished a lot in that lake when I was a kid. I loved to stand in the water and watch the little fish nibble on my toes.
Yesterday, we picked up Grandma Dorothy and spent the afternoon and evening at Mom and Larry’s. There was a big dead tree in the back by the chicken house. Saturday Mom and Larry decided to pull that huge tree clear out of the ground roots and all. Next weekend they are going to tear down the chicken house. James had fun helping Larry burn the limbs and the gigantic stump. They said it will probably take a couple of weeks for it to completely burn up. We had a nice relaxing time watching the pyromaniac (James)!
I won’t keep boring you with the details of the weekend. I hope everyone has a good week!
I’ve learned that good-byes will always hurt, pictures will never replace having been there, memories good and bad will bring tears, and words can never replace feelings.â€
