Weekend Update: We were busy

We had a very busy weekend. Our surprise company arrived around 4 p.m. on Friday. It was nice to see them even if it was only for a short while. They left to visit with their son and DIL around 10:30 a.m.

There DIL can be a real treat so I am hoping and praying that they are having a decent visit. She is one of those people who is extremely intelligent but lacks a lot of common sense.



Here's a picture of me (in the red) and M. She brought my mother's day tree to me in a bucket nearly five years ago. You can read the story here. It's pretty safe to say that M would do anything for you.


On Saturday our good friends and neighbors invited us out to go boating with them. They have a rather large boat and we could comfortably fit all 1o of us (five of them and five of us). Here is Little G (on the right) and her boy tubing together.



Oldest G almost got up on the water skis which was a very good try for her first time. At first she wasn't sure she wanted to give it a go and then she didn't want to quit. I was proud of her for trying even when she was scared.



Middle G. actually got up for about .2 seconds and surprisingly I got a picture of it. It was a lot of fun and I hope we have an opportunity to go with them again.

My dad and my step mom came out on Sunday for the day and we went to a baseball game.
The weather cooperated and we didn't get wet.
It was good to see them even if it was only for a short while.

The car went to get the hail damaged repaired from this storm and it won't be returning for at least five days. It has nearly $3300 worth of damage. The good news is they gave us a navy blue Kia Optima and I like it.
We are in the market for a new van and I think the Kia brand just moved up a few pegs in my book.
What did you do this weekend?

Too bad about the car damage. I've heard good things about the Kia. Looks like you had another fun weekend. I like that water skiing!

Such a great time! That is wonderful you were able to snap that pic of Middle G!

Isn't living with hail fun. We had some friends who drove out to see us - and got caught in one of our hail storms. It totaled their brand new van (2 inch hail stones piercing the roof and sides will do that.)

Glad to hear you are getting some good out of the repair. {*grin*}

That is a busy weekend.

And I totally believe that repairs cost that much. We got rearended and it ended up being like $5500 to fix it!!

I've heard nice things about Kias.
