Father's Day

Several weeks ago we had a small gathering to celebrate LM and the wonderful father he is to his children. We all collaborated on a nice meal and used the new grille again. LOVELY!

First thing in the morning, LM and I walked out to the street corner in the front of the house to take photos and admire this spectacular weed, also known as mullein, which decided to seed itself and flourish for us this year. It is at least 6 ft tall and a site to behold. I love wild things!
Speaking of things I love, this little darling came to visit in the morning that day, too, and he was immediately captivated by our solar cats we have placed in the garden (they do light beautifully at night)
After some fun in the garden and playtime with Legos, we took a little walk next door to visit the geese family and look at their beautiful flower garden. Later in the season, there will be lovely cut flowers for sale. There was lots of honking and flapping of wings as we were spotted. I doubt anyone is attempting to steal plants from "their" garden. Click on the photo to enlarge and see the geese in the background. This farmer also has some interesting wagons all around the yard.
We were really happy to have Kristi with us to celebrate her Dad.
Megan and Jose had a great time looking through LM's Air Force yearbook.Sharing our dinner.....my beloved LM in his new shirt! Snapped that photo before his beautiful smile.
A perfect day......Ms G made a few appearances.....
