Happy Weekend!

What a gerrific weekend!!  And of course, I don't have many photos to share!
Friday we spent the day with my dad at an old car show that he goes to every year.  This year we didn't want him to miss it, so Glen and I spent the day with dad.  I was absolutely amazed by the amount of old car parts and how all these guys knew what all these parts were too and what year vehicle, it was absolutely fascinating.  Trim pieces for instance, they knew what model, vehicle and model year.  Amazing!!

Saturday we spent the day in the sweltering heat (big surprise there) working on the deck.  We were able to finish the railings and get the lights installed.  It looks awesome and mom & dad were thrilled!!  Dad and I made a quick trip to Lowe's even, which as simple as it sounds, is a huge step for my dad in his getting stronger for his surgery.  While we were at my mom and dad's yesterday we also ended up harvesting a FEW (like a DOZEN) cucumbers, banana peppers and even green onions.  I didn't take photos of that, however we were home today and WE have some veggies ready to pick in our garden (and a few that aren't yet ready to pick, but are growin like crazy!

We even got some time around the house today which was FABULOUS!!
