Our Visit To Tyler

Last weekend Bo & I went to Tyler to visit my family and for Bo to help John put new windows in his & Mary Helen's house. We had a nice trip down (all 8 hrs). We stopped along to way to let Lilly go potty and took her picture in the Bluebonnets.

The morning after we got there, Bo & John got started on the windows and then it began to rain, and rain, and rain. So....... here's what they did.

That worked out pretty good, albeit it a little sloshy, and they got several windows installed. After working hard all day, John took us to eat at a good barbeque place in town, and of course, we ate way too much.

The next day Bo & John worked on windows again in between showers. PAJ and Dorothy came out and we had a nice visit with them. Later that night Glender and Rudy came over and we had lasagna and strawberry shortcake, then played dominos.

Bo & I headed back home on Sunday morning, and made it back in time to get rested for work on Monday morning. We enjoyed the visit.

Our Weekend Project

Here's what Bo & I did today out in the 45 mph winds, no less.

I really did help, even though I'm not in any pictures. --I was taking the pictures! I even carried one 80 lb bag of concrete. Ugh. Bo carried about 8 bags (not all at one time though). He's strong, but not quite that strong.

Are you wondering just what that thing in our backyard is? Well, in the next picture you will see what I ordered to go with it and then you will know. It hasn't arrived yet, but should be here in the next few days, and besides we have to wait a few days for the concrete to dry before we can use it. I'm really excited about it because it's something I enjoy very much.

It reminds me of my mother. Now can you guess? Dont peak! I bet Mary Ellen & Gendy can guess.

A swing, yep, you got it!

The one I ordered is not white though, it's wood colored, but it's not real wood. It's made of polywood, so it can withstand the weather.

I'll post another picture when it's all together. Now you just need to come visit me so we can sit out there and enjoy it.
