It was a nice Memorial Day. I am so grateful for all those who have served our country and kept us free--especially those who gave their lives in that service. Also, thank you to all of you who serve now. We owe you a great debt.

Rob got a good part of our garden planted today. I got some things done inside the house and a few errands run. But the best part of the day came this evening when we had some family and friends over for a barbecue. It was a nice, relaxing evening of food, talk and watching the kids play. But--the best part I saved for last--we actually got Grandpa to come outside. It's only the second time he's been in our backyard since they've lived here. The first time was when they came to let him try this new motorized wheelchair. This time he was able to come out on his own and move around the yard freely in it. He was even able to maneuver  it back by the fire pit and creek. It was so nice to have him out there. And the weather was perfect tonight. It was simply beautiful out!

Just before we ate one of our guests found a tiny Robin's nest in one of our trees near the fire pit. In it, were a couple of newly hatched baby Robins--and one or two still unhatched eggs. The babies are so tiny. Here's the picture. Pretty cool. Hope you had a great Memorial Day, too!
