Memorial Day Fun with the Family

Saturday morning we had resigned to the fact that our fencing project would not be completed before the holiday.  We left about 10:30 to go and watch my grandson, Jonas, at his swim lesson, and then we had a delightful breakfast with the Troudt family at The Egg and I ... drove back home and as we pulled into our driveway the fencing crew was just leaving.  They had put up the entire fence in just a few hours.  And it was AMAZING !!  Really made our weekend complete.

Monday we had the family over for a potluck.  Sterling cooked up some ribs and threw some dogs on the grill and everyone else brought some delicious side dishes to go with.

Here's a photo of my folks enjoying the gorgeous afternoon ... mother nature was so understanding and kept the rains and thunder boomers at bay until after everyone left.

Sterling made the kids each their own water gun shooting gallery.  He just used a piece of 2x4 and painted it, drilled some holes and inserted some golf tees, and then added some ping pong type lightweight balls. 

As you can see, the kids (Hailey and Jonas) had a BLAST and of course when they weren't shooting off the ping pong balls, they were running around getting all of us wet with their water guns ... I believe Jeremy had as much fun if not more than the kids playing with the water guns!

We also got a tether ball set for the backyard and everyone had a go at this fun sport.  It was a huge hit !

And last, but certainly not least, here's a pic of our dear Miss Paisley in her rockin' summer shades!
