Memorial Day 2008

What a day to remember. A complete gathering of the clan at the house. As always, it was a great day and the weather was awesome. It was 84 degrees air temp and by about 3PM it was 81 degrees in the pool!

It don't get no better than this.

We spent the entire day enjoying each other's company and eating. And eating and drinking and watching the grand kids as they enjoyed the sun. The day was a great prelude to the summer ahead.

Nicole really documented the weekend in her blog, so I recommend checking it out.

From my standpoint--the pool was warm and crystal clear so it was the center of the fun. The Orioles beat the Yankees in baseball and everyone at the picnic had a real great time.

Chris cooked her heart out with salads and fixings--and one really super coffee cake she made me for breakfast.

Jax was wide awake for part of the afternoon looking all around and really becoming part of the family. Jeremy was fixated on getting Ben--the Keeshond, into the pool and finally did get him in. Shortly thereafter I noticed a fine layer of dog hair on the surface of the water. I was reminded of Megan, our departed golden, who we used to shave for summer so she could swim in the pool without depositing a layer of fur across the water.
Families are great. They keep us in touch with each other and help us to learn to appreciate each other. Patrick and Tina were there too--earlier in the day we helped them get a dresser and delivered it to College Park, and they were fully part of the action.
Well, it is safe to say--on to summer!
