This weekend of celebrating is flying by fast! I've crammed a lot in these past few days and I wanted to blog about the 4th of July before it's the 5th! Jack came home today from Boy Scout Camp and I'll give him some blog time next week...but welcome home Babe! We missed you! Because the 4th is today, a Saturday, I had Friday off work. So Thursday I started celebrating with Addy as we made my annual star cakes.

Jack is again at Boy Scout camp. I don't mind that he goes, but usually something weird happens the week of camp. Monday started out fine...except for the fact some crazed escaped from custody person assaulted a family a few miles from here and is on the run. I had Tuesday off and every time I heard a bump or a squeak in the house I jumped a mile! Plus I decided to stay out of the Creepy Woods. Hope they get this dude. We've had rain off and on for weeks so I was very surprised and happy to wake up to sunshine Tuesday morning. Although it had rained on Monday I decided to do a quick mowing because it really needed it and I thought I could mow again on Friday and put me back on my weekend schedule. It got a bit off when my family was here last weekend. By the time I got on the mower the sky looked like this:

We had a couple of fun visitors this week. My Sister Midge and my sweet Mom hopped in my sis's new car and made the easy (but boring) ride from Chicago to Ashland.

Well, in keeping with my blogging theme this year, I'm again a day late and probably a dollar short! Happy Father's Day to all the Dads..the Dear Dads...The Dearest Dads I know....
Huh Eddy....Jordan's a great Dad isn't he! Yesterday the guys and kiddos came for lunch and we had a wonderful time. The boys surprised Jack with a new grill. Our old gas grill had died and this was the substitute:

Do you have the TV commercial about Michigan? Since we're Michigan's downstairs neighbors we do get them and it makes the state of Michigan look wonderful...and it is..."Pure Michigan"... beautiful lakes, and rivers and camping and fun, It was the perfect place for our Boy Scouts to pick for the high adventure trip for 2015. The middle of the mitten was a sweet spot...although a bit chillier than they thought and a bit rainy at the end of the week. In fact, they headed home on Friday instead of Saturday. Did I mention mutant mosquitoes? Yikes! But they had fun and a good experience and all survived.
