Back to it after a whirlwind couple of days with Marymine and crew. It was good for my soul to spend time with them. A crazy busy time: talking, sharing stories, meals, shopping, hauling kids every which way, and going to graduations.
First night was Lauren's 8th grade graduation
Next night was Colt's high school graduation
Ali is home too, so there was a lot of hugging going around. Cody couldn't make it but will have a short leave the end of next month before reporting to Bethesda. I will hopefully get to see him then.
Marymine's yard looks wonderful with the new landscaping, and her veggie garden is growing like gangbusters. We both like repurposing things... this is her new fire pit:
Colt got it for her, and welded a steel plate in the center to lay the fire on. Works like a charm. Do you know what it is?
