Gina and Blair came to visit

Gina and Blair came for a visit over this past weekend. Jason was working as he got his first chance to do helicopter patrol (way to go Jas). We sure had a great time showing Blair around mom and dad's and Gina and I got some great time in the sun. Having a young child around really helped me appreciate country living.

I think this photo looks exactly like Jason did in his baby photos.

Blair got to meet the neighbor horses. He didn't quite know what to think of them, but they kept trying to nuzzle his cute legs.

He and Grandpa got a chance to catch up. Blair smiles all the time.

During dinner Grandpa set him up on these pillows and he watched a little t.v. (Don't tell dad) while we ate.

He started eating rice cereal, which he loves and the spoon is not to bad either.

This was just a photo I loved showing his tongue.

Grandma has lots of frogs around her flowers and Grandpa found this one to show him.

Short update

We added a couple finishing touches to the water feature. I love the planting part of projects and I now think we have the water feature complete. I love the pink flowers. Andy and I have enjoyed many breakfasts out on the front steps listening to the water feature.

So you can experience...do you feel relaxed. =)

Friday night Andy and I spent about an hour on the swing with our feather blanket. This turned out to be such a relaxing place. The first photo is with the flash so you can see what it looks like; the second shows how dark it was and how nice the candles and lights were. We are ready for company.

Our other big news is that Andy has a new job at the foundry where he is managing a group of about 30 guys. This is a job that he was requested for as it is challenging. He is doing a great job so far and has made some wonderful changes already. He is able to keep the same hours (most of the time). My job is still going very well. We have been very lucky that the challenging economy has not affected us very much. We hope you all are doing well and that you are having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.
