What A Weekend!

Thank God for Memorial Day Weekend. We spent three days and two nights in sunny Hamburg, WI. First class accommodations (camper), 4 star restaurants (campfire food) and lots of recreation (walks in the woods, catch with the girls, reading and star gazing). As a family (that was the best part!) we planted most of the garden and formed a bucket brigade to water it (do do list: buy a longer hose!).
Erin built her first fire and cooked foil potatoes by herself, Tom and I were chased by an angry mama turkey, and 6 year old Lizzy -well she was just Lizzy! Happy, funny, hiding in the long grass-and the winner of the most ticks contest!

Sounds like you had a really nice time is always good. And kids always remember these types of times.

Happiness is . . . sigh . . .

Sue-they never remember the toilet getting stuck or the leaking roof vents-pretty cool how a child remembers only the positive highlights!
Rose-yes..sigh. Now how to incorporate more of that peace into every day. Kris
