Happy Birthday Amber. The back yard.

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

Today is my little sister's birthday! Happy birthday Amber!

Yesterday was a very warm day around here. It may have been around 90 degrees at some point as my walk home from work was in punishing heat, but really the days are short enough that it never seemed too bad. In the summer when it would get hot it would stay hot all evening, not yesterday.

It was nice enough to BBQ for dinner and venture into the back yard. The edges of the yard are kind of unkempt this season, and the grass is dead from the kids playing soccer nonstop, but there are some nice things around. Here is a flower that Maren found in the back yard...go figure!

This is the flaming BBQ. I know I have taken pics like this one, but it is just cool with all the flames, totally beats the modern propane BBQs that are everywhere. I did over cook last nights burgers while playing with the fire, I did not mind, but Hansen was a bit put out.
Preston had asked Lillie to get him a pop from the garage as she was going that way. She brought him a sprite. When Preston opened the can of pop it sprayed all over and bubbled way over all over Preston and the table. While Preston freaked a bit and the rest of us laughed a bit, Lillie said, "Oh yeah, I dropped your pop!" Thanks for the heads up!
Last night was also open house at Grass Lake. We were introduced to all the teachers, and got to see the kid's classrooms and hear about their schedules. I went to Lillie's class while Maren went to Hansen's class. The kids really enjoy their new school. We are looking foward to a great school year!
See you tomorrow.

Oh Lillie, she "dropped" his pop. Would've loved to been a fly on the wall in the garage to see what really happened :)
