Mike and the boys kept working on the winter wood pile.
Krista, Arielle, Stacia and I went shopping in town...and saw the ocean...and couldn't find salt water taffy nor fudge.
Bre arrived. Stacia was surprised. I love the big hugs she freely bestows on her adult siblings. She lets them know she loves thems, knows who they are and hasn't forgotten them.
Did I mention BIG TREES in a previous post?
This is the tree that we videoed....there are no signs marking the tree or telling its age etc. I was glad Mike was along to fill us in on what we were enjoying. I havne't a clue as to why they removed all the informational signs in the park.
Back at the folks' we lit the summer stove, lit the Lodge grill and burned some burgers...then we set around the stove and sang wonderful songs like, "If you love me you will show me you adore me" and "L is for the way you LOOK at me....LOVE...." etc.
We did more mowing...about 1/3 of the way done now.
Jared and Dad Earl played another game of chess and YES...Dad Earl's memory of the game is returning. He's having FUN and enjoyed winning last night. This is so good for him and a great way for Jared to learn chess. I think this is great for both Dad Earl and Jared...both dealing with transitions and seasons in life.
