We had a very nice holiday weekend. We went to Todd's parents' country house, which is about 2 hours away. We left on Friday afternoon and came back earlier today.
We got there Friday afternoon and it started to rain shortly after we got there. We headed out to dinner, where both kids were surprisingly well behaved for a sit-down dinner. Katie didn't stop eating from the time we sat down until we got ready to leave.
Saturday we spent some time walking around the property. Todd, his mom, Katie and Michael went to the local elementary school to play on the playground. Mid-afternoon, Michael went to the store with his grandparents while Katie, Todd and I stayed back at the house. It was nice to have a chance to relax for a bit as Katie napped for most of that time.
Sunday morning, we headed to a neighbor's house who has a pretty large garden that he planted with Todd's dad. We got to pick some heads of cabbage and also got some squash. In the afternoon, Todd, Michael and I took the golf cart out around town. We went to a playground at a local church, saw some horses and watched a deer cross the road just a few hundred feet in front of us. When we got back, we went in the pool for a little bit and took the canoe out on the pond after that.
Today was overcast and rainy. We were going to take the golf cart out for another ride but the weather wasn't cooperating. We decided to head home early afternoon as it was raining and the kids were getting a bit restless. Todd cooked a fabulous dinner when we got home that included the fresh picked squash.
It was fun to spend the long holiday weekend with family. And thank you to all those who have served, are serving and will serve our country!
