We've spent much time in the yard (here they are supervising me turning the compost pile)
I took a day off of work on my mom's birthday and we did some countryside sightseeing and went out to lunch...
... and scrapbooked of course. My Dad is tying flies for fishing.
Plus, a real bonus is that my mom has made dinner for us everynight when we get home from work and my dad has been busy doing projects around the house such as building shelves in the closet (happy thought indeed!) hanging pictures, and supervising contractors that are still doing warranty repair work on the house. We really needed the help and it has been enjoyable and a big relief to get some of these things done.
This week I'm back in the field, and my parents and friends Liz and Ed, who came down from Vermont on Friday, are heading out to Charleston for the week together.
