Memorial Day

Another school year is over here, graduation has passed (this year marks 6 years since our son graduated & 4 for our daughter) and another Summer will be settling in on us soon. The beginning of this weekend was blustery & cold, as it always seems to be. We can have temperatures near 100 for a week or so before Memorial weekend, but that Thursday, the weather will turn & the wind will start, usually bringing at least one storm.

We spent Friday evening celebrating a friend's birthday, we grilled for him & I baked a cake, then we ate & sat around visiting for awhile. Saturday, Troy & I took Dawn & we drove down south to attend our oldest granddaughter's birthday party. She'll be 5 on the 30th, which is just about unbelievable to all of us. It was nice, if a little tense & awkward at times, we were thankful to have been included, since her mother isn't here & we had nothing planned for her up here.

Sunday, Troy had to work some overtime (I should say got to work - we needed the money), so I hung out at home for a bit with Erin, until he left to go help someone move. I cooked sweet & sour chicken in the slow cooker for our friends for dinner, so I got that together & started the rice, which took twice as long as it should have, so the three of us were just starting dinner when Troy got home, which was kind of nice. We watched Game of Thrones, played Rock Band 3 for a few hours, then Dawn left, so me, Troy, Ryan & our son watched "X-Men: First Class" since none of us had seen it. We went to bed around 1:30am.

Erin had to be at work at 10:00am today & Troy works tonight, so we're just kind of taking it easy. We'll grill some bratwurst for dinner later and we did a little yard work a little bit ago and that's pretty much our big weekend.
