Memorial Day Weekend

Hi! Hope everyone had a decent Memorial Day.
Ours was pretty nice, although slightly weird, given the COVID  quarantine.

On Saturday I went for my usual bike ride.  The city has closed down some streets in and around downtown to try to encourage people to exercise on city streets instead of congregating in the parks.  It was fun to ride down through the neighborhoods with little or no traffic on those streets.

The kids spent the night with Grandma and Papa on Friday night.  I picked them up Saturday morning.

Log cabin
Later on Saturday we played in our inflatable pool in the yard.

On Sunday we went for walks and bug hunts.

Later on Sunday we had some pretty big storms, and even had some hail!

On Monday, Memorial Day, we went to Grandma and Papa's house for some fajitas.  We had a nice time hanging out with them.

That was pretty much our weekend.  By necessity, it was low key, but it was pretty nice.  We miss having Ryan and Jamie and Susan around for our get togethers.  Feels weird.  But it was a nice time!  Thanks to Mom and Dad for having us!
Have a good week!
