Memorial Day Weekend, 2013
It was a wonderful weekend with the kids- I think we had a great few days overall. The weather was decent- not too warm, not too cold and no rain! SHOCKER. Too bad that no rain trend is not going to continue during this week. We all enjoyed our visit with little Ella and we had a few guests who came over to meet the little one, so it was an active few days. Grandma Debi and Grandpa Fred held Ella a LOT, which was wonderful for everyone involved. Grandma Debi had her enough that she was treated to several of Ella's first smiles! Never was able to catch those still fleeting moments on "film", but that is just a matter of time.
We got a few little chores done around the house, got part of the garden planted, the clock got fixed and a couple other things tidied up. I was fortunate to get 2 delightful Mother's Day gifts- one was a really cool photo mug of Ella and the other the long awaited garden gate- Greg did some blacksmithing and created a beautiful garden gate that he installed on the garden fence this weekend. So cool!

|Carrots brought them all running in!|
It was really very sad when they all left- but fortunately it will only be a few weeks before I see them all again. But, I was really tired! I did some weeding as long as there was no mosquitos buzzing in my ear, so that felt great. If it is not raining, weeding will be on the agenda for the evening tonight as well.
