Memorial Weekend started off pretty rainy here. We were going to go camping with Ma and Pa Herbert but instead we all stayed home. :( Two kids, mixed with mud and rain and no where to run but inside our small Tioga motor-home, I think not.
Friday we went to Lehi to see what grandma Joy was up to she had the day off. She was creating beautiful flower arrangements for the graves. In our family we have about 35 grave sides in 4 different cemeteries. My family believes in using fake flower arrangements that have to be stored in a garage attic and then taken down, dusted and "refluffed" every year. They are beautiful but it's a lot of work I think, however; our graves look awesome every year.
I tried to help but Jim said I would get the "good effort award" against my moms. I admit arranging flowers are not my specialty so I told mom when she died I was gonna auction her arrangements and by Mums. So we helped with that and enjoyed the company. After we had dinner from Cafe Rio my mom offered to watch the kids overnight so Jim and I could go to a movie.
While waiting for dinner to arrive, I was on KSL looking for dining sets and one popped up. It was 9:30 at night and at 10:00 we became the owners of the beautiful table above. It was only $50, well underpriced very heavy in great condition and I think beautiful. I am grateful as we were outgrowing our other one. Then on to the movie, running...For those of you who haven't seen the movie Iron Man I highly reccomend it. We enjoyed our night.
Sat Jim got up early and went flying to beat the rain. I went to Lehi to pick up kids and hang out. Jim joined us and the other siblings in that afternoon for honey dos, dinner and cards. The girls tied a quilt for our new nephew Mac arriving in July and did dinner and the boys started on a swingset/club house for the grandkids. Jo sat and watched and waited patiently. She told grandpa he had "pive mimutes" to finish it. It will be done for this weekends Sunday dinner and Jo is estatic. She is a little impatient, everytime grandpa took a break to potty, eat, rest, go get more wood, she would say things like why isn't grandpa out working on MY playhouse. She also had dreams about her slide coming in the mail. So funny!!! She hasn't though about anything since.
On Memorial Day our little family went to lunch at Chilis since our plans to go swimming at the Scera were foiled. It was a good time. The kids ate and acted pretty good and then fell asleep on the way home, so Jim and I got to catch up on LOST! WAHOO it was a great weekend. Not very restful, quite busy, but it was fun and lots got done!
