Happy Memorial Day!

I hope you have enjoyed the long weekend and that you made sure to thank a Veteran for their service to our country. This was a crazy weekend for us. Saturday we went to Alex’s graduation party for a little while, then headed back to the house because 4 of Katie’s friends were coming in for the week. Thank goodness for crockpots and my sisters pulled pork BBQ recipe (thanks Melodie). I was able to feed Katie and her friends, plus Hilary was home for the weekend. It was nice to have the “noise” of teenagers/young adults in the house again.

Yesterday afternoon I helped  6 of the kids get their stuff 3 miles up the road to White Lake State Park where they are camping until Wednesday AM. I thought everyone was going home on Wednesday…silly me. Some will be here until Thursday and other until Saturday. Then Hilary returns on Saturday and will stay through Monday AM to get some work done on her car. We took a drive last night to Alton and visited with our friends, Bryce and Barb and 2 of their lovely daughters, Samantha and Shannon…that was nice.

John spent the day working in the yard and also did a little fishing. I washed and waxed cars, cleaned since the “troops” were gone and did laundry. About 2 PM the 2 carloads of kids arrived…camping was great, but they weren’t thrilled about the condition of the pay showers after a full campground had been using them. 2 hours later (and many wii games) they headed out to Diana’s Bath for some hiking. It is supposed to rain tonight and on and off showers tomorrow…fun…fun…fun.

John and I plan to decide on shore excursions for our Alaska trip later tonight. I believe salmon fishing in on the list for him…guess I’ll have to go shopping that day…too bad…

Enjoy the rest of your day!

    Sounds like a fun day Joy…. I’d opt for the shopping over fishing as well… when do you go to Alaska?
