AMAZING Saturday!

Today was a great part of the weekend.  Glen and I spent the better part of the day and evening at my mom and dad's working on the deck and some lawn mowing.  Glen's mom joined us for the day too she and my mom worked on flower beds and killing LOTS of poison ivy!!  We did some horse shuffling in and out of pastures and even got to enjoy my dad's company for dinner.  While dad hasn't been able to eat anything since January, today was an AMAZING day - mom decided she was going to order pizza so we didn't have to cook tonight and who can go wrong with Jet's Pizza??  She and dad went to pick up the pizza while Glen, Lee and I finished the project we were working on.   Dad said the pizza smelled so good in the car on the way home, he was going to have to give it a try - we thougth he might just chew it a bit to let his taste buds enjoy it and maybe spit it out (I know, probably WAY TOO much info).  However, that was not the case - he ATE it AND - IT WAS A SUCCESS!!  I can't tell you just how much we were all beaming watching my dad enjoy the first food in MONTHS!
Doesn't he look happy with that Jet's Pizza box in his lap?!
Thanks so much for sharin' our excitement.
