A little backtracking....

So I guess I have to take back a little bit of what I said last week. The Memorial Day weekend was not as bad as I anticipated.

Dad, Bill and I went out four-wheeling on Friday, in Elberta, and had a great time. Followed up with dinner at The Family Tree. Can we say amazing scones?! One scone was huge! The food was good but not the same as we remember from before. We hear there was some kind of owner change or something. Anyway, it was a good day and a good start to a fairly good weekend.
Saturday, we all spent most of the day cleaning the house and yard getting ready for our Memorial Day BBQ. It's always great to have a clean(er) house. Huge thanks to Kacie for cleaning my bathroom. She is such a sweetheart and a great sister. Then it was off to marathon Wal-mart shopping to get everything for the BBQ. Thankfully it wasn't very crowded. Guess everyone got out of dodge on Friday!
Sunday, we went to church in the morning. After church Dad and I went over to the cemetery and put the silk flowers that we bought for Mom on our newly installed headstone. We spent some time wandering around the cemetery and checking out what others did in rememberance of the day there. The amount of flowers was crazy, but beautiful too.
On Sunday, we also had Kacie and Kimball over for supper. Corn on the cob is in season and I am so excited! It has to be like my second favorite food, aside from potatoes... Needless to say, that is what we had for supper, with biscuits and gravy. So, another alright day.

Monday, being the holiday, we invited lots of family over for a big BBQ. 16 people in total. My niece had a great time jumping on the trampoline while I was prepping dinner, but it almost gave Nana a heartattack.... silly Nana. The food was great. Again, thanks to Kacie for helping me with setup and making the salads. As usual, I totally overdid the amount of food, and we have been eating leftovers for three days now, but it was worth it.
All in all, a fairly good weekend. So, I guess I only hate Mother's Day... lol.

On another note, we now have two new (to us) project cars at our house:

Dad's.... 1954 Buick Roadmaster
We are picking this one up tomorrow and got a great deal on it. Dad is exciting about it and has been checking out parts on eBay for days now.

and Bill's.... 1972 Cuda

We are all excited to get started on the Cuda, the parts have been coming in the mail for months now. All we are doing now is that I am saving up to start the body work. We have more parts than are shown in this picture, but this was how it looked when we picked it up.

We have decided that it will be painted House of Colore Lapis Blue, which I am toally excited about... I love blue cars.
So, that's our life right now. Later!
