We've had company to celebrate some birthdays - the United States, a granddaughter and a daughter-in-law. This was the first time in three years that we had all been together. Missing was a sister of Grandpa's in New Jersey and many nephews and nieces in Jersey and California - most of whom I have never seen. But - with Facebook and/or Skype we can "see" them.
Anyway, it was a fun time. The first two days weren't too hot and the last night was lovely for a Kansas evening in the summer. We all had repellant on so the skeeters left us alone!
I'm so glad they could all get here at the same time. . . and for all the help, from trimming trees, changing light tubes, help in planning meals (we didn't cook) and recovering wandering dogs. Thank goodness the dogs got loose only once.
