Busy Weekend

Good Morning World!

We had a busy weekend. Saturday began with high school graduation. Ric, I and our niece Courtney headed to the school about 40 minutes early. It was kinda pleasant in the gym until it started to fill up....then it seemed like the air got sucked out. It was kinda fun trying to find the graduates after the ceremony outside to take some pics....we never did find all of them we wanted to. Headed back to the Hurd's to drop off Courtney so she could take off for work and we headed to the first of the open houses. Paula's was at the Mill Pond park....beautiful day for an outside gathering.

Sunday afternoon was another open house ... one of Courtney's friends(Kai) and one of the kids we consider like another niece to us. (this is the only open house so far we didn't stay long enough to get any graduation cake!) Ric had some shopping to do in TC and we had to get his Dad's birthday present at the nursery.....so we hung out for the rest of the afternoon. Got part of the shopping done, then had to head to Barker Creek before they closed for the day to pick out an apple tree. We got a really knowledgable guy to help us. Then loaded it up in the vehicle and headed to Ric's parents before they got home from church to "hide it behind the house" We got it put behind the house, watered good and then took off before we got caught in the yard. After getting home and trying to lay down for a nap, began to wonder if the tree got put in line of the bedroom window, decided too late to worry about it since they should be home in about 15min or so. We found out later when Don went to get ready for bed, he saw something out his window and called Shirley in to check it out, then had to go outside to see what it was for sure. Busted!!! :-) Oh well....it was a surprise, it was just sooner than we planned!

Monday (Memorial Day) we had a picnic at the Moser's with a bunch of people. The picnic gathering was double duty party for us....we also got cake/ice cream for Don's birthday and sang to him there. It was the weekend for birthdays...Don's was Friday, Denise's Sat and Mon was Zachary and Marge. I did get Zachary with his sister's help to give him his birthday spankings! We had another open house to hit ... great meatballs at this one! Another of our honorary "nieces" -- Mandy -- she went on the cruise last March with Courtney and had a blast. We have a couple more next Saturday . The weekend after is when Casey (another honorary niece) moves to California ... we will be so sad to see her go, but excited for her.

Other happenings this weekend....Nestina and her brother Adam headed to North Carolina sometime Sunday and called Ric Monday to say they got there okay. I hope all goes well with that move. In one house, will now be Mom and all her kids -- 2 boys and a girl. Good luck! I'm praying things here in Michigan may get back to what they should be. Of course, Ric is helping out in another crisis with his niece/nephew and sister's problems, but I will try to not let that sidetrack us.

Time to hit the shower and get ready for work....glad it is only a four day week! Hope everyone had a great weekend and didn't get too sunburned!
