Beautiful Anniversary Weekend

What a beautiful weekend we had.  Mid 70s on Saturday and closer to 80° on Sunday, bright and sunny both days.

We were expecting a visit from my dad on Saturday afternoon, so Saturday morning I did some cooking and cleaning.  Since it was the first day without rain all week, Shane worked outside planting a few more things and tidying up around the yard.

My dad showed up around 4:00.  We visited for a while, threw some burgers on the grill for supper, played a rousing game of washers, visited some more, and hit the sack around 10:00.

Kat and her great-grandpa playing washers.

We played two games and both times Dad defeated us all quite handily.
Yesterday morning after a quick breakfast of bacon-and-tomato sandwiches and homemade granola muffins, we went to Nate's Swap Shop, an outdoor flea market at a now-defunct drive-in theater.  This swap meet is open on weekends throughout the spring, summer and fall -- and even in the winter if there happens to be an unexpected warm weekend. 

After the swap meet, we found a few rare Sunday garage sales.  Our best buy, I think, was a complete, like-new croquet set for just $4.  Kat was asking for one just a few days ago, so that was a great deal for us.

As soon as we got back home, my dad grabbed a couple more granola muffins and headed for his own home.  By then, it was around 3:00, so we decided to go out for a late lunch to celebrate our anniversary.  We chose Lorenzo's, an Italian place near our house.  Their food is good, and we each came home with leftovers, so I didn't have to cook supper, either. 

We spent the rest of the evening straightening up around the house, planning lunches and getting Kat's clothing ready for the school week ahead.  Shane still isn't back to work, but he's been told the call-back will probably come late next week.  That's alright; he isn't done with the honey-do list yet and can use a few more days at home.

That's the scoop on our weekend.  Tomorrow is Garden Tuesday, so stay tuned.  I want to show you my bloomers!
