Americana

Memorial Day. Thank you to all the men and women who have served, are serving, or will serve our homeland. The U.S. of A.
Today has been a good day, it has included the kids spending the night last night at their friends house. There is a family who has kids the same age as ours. And it works out great when they are all together. The kids spent the night there last night. Derek played a pick up baseball game today with his buddy and a big group of boys, Jack and Sophie played and swam with their friends. Rob and I went out for breakfast, walked the path around ACU, cleaned the house, did some laundry (in our most delightful new washing machine), edged and mowed the lawn. I made yummy vanilla ice cream, crushed up an entire package or oreo's and added it to the ice cream whence is finished churning, made some decadent homemade hot fudge sauce, defrosted some brauts, and now we are headed to Mommer's and Tom's for a cook out with homemade oreo ice cream with a hot fudge ribbon for dessert. Does life get any better?
