We hang behind

This morning was kind of the family get together over breakfast day.  We had a few mother's day gifts to open and some scrambled eggs to eat.  Biscuit the dog had to chase the grandkids until they fell down.  The ruckus went on!

But before long it was time to pack the bags and coolers for home.....  At least Ben and Danielle did that, but I commented to Loyce that we really didn't need to go home today........... Do we?  Well no we don't, so we just watched as our company packed up.

With hugs and handshakes, they departed, and we settled into looking at the lake out the big sliding door!  Biscuit was tired and just slept in the big leather couch for the rest of the afternoon.

I think Loyce went thru a lot of our stuff that has accumulated here in the 9 years since we built this place.  We drive the pickup back and forth to the KC home and it seems that we are never happy with where something is.  Haul it to the lake, and then take another load back to the KC home.

We sorted out a bunch of stuff to run thru the washing machine since it has been since last fall that things were washed up.

And I am looking forward to going to the Missouri DMV to renew some boat tags in the morning......  So that should be another great DMV experience.........  At least they don't have cell phone preregistration, and folks will actually have to appear in order to get in line....

Tonight it is in the early 60s and it almost feels cold outside.  We had the cool front go over yesterday with afternoon rains which dampened all hopes of the kids and swimming.  Us adults weren't too keen on the idea anyway as the water is just barely 60 degrees.

  1. Yep 60 is a little cold in the water department, read blue lips swimming. anything above 75 will do for me, but Donna needs 90 degree water like a bathtub.Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  2. HOpe you can stay for the week-and enjoy your lake home! I would! Sounds like a great time with the family-making happy memories for them!

  3. Glad to hear Biscuit had a good run with the Grandkids - enough to wear her out for a little while anyway.

    Can't wait to hear your story about your visit to the DMV - that's always entertaining!

    Glad Loyce had a great Mother's Day with family.
