A perfect family weekend
Seems like these last few days have flown by. At the end of the day, I have been exhausted. Enough so that today, since it is cool and rainy, I took a two hour nap.
Last Thursday evening, we took the boys out to a sit down restaurant to eat. First time in ages we have done that. We used the excuse that we were celebrating Shaine (my 16 year-old) hitting the 4 months sober mark and Travis (my 11 year-old) being back on track after his latest surgery in March.
Friday evening, Travis took his 'girlfriend' to the school dance. Her Mom drove them and I picked them up. She wore a new dress that she begged her mom to take her to get and Travis wore a t-shirt and grass stained jeans. Sigh...boys will be boys!
Saturday morning, Andy and I went to the flea market and walked around. I found an adorable mosaic table for the garden. It has yellow flowers and butterflies on top. After that we took the boys out to Grandma's house, along with their guns, so they could target practice in the woods. I also dug up more rocks for the shade garden. I think I loaded a few to many because we could feel the weight of them while driving.
Today was a whole lot of nothing. Travis has a spring cold, Shaine walked to the movies for some alone time and now is spending time with a couple of friends, Andy watched TV and I napped.
All in all, it was a wonderful family weekend. Something that has not been that easy to come by these last four years.
Tomorrow I will post some pictures of the progress in the shade garden as well as the blooms in the pond garden.
