This summer has been fairly busy, so it was nice to spend a weekend at home this past weekend. With the Reagens out of town and no travel plans, it was a good weekend to get some things done around the house and spend some time with the Lieslands.
Starting on Friday Susan got the ‘weeding’ bug and decided to start tackling our gardens. There is a lot of landscaping around our yard and we gave everything some time to come up before we started determining what we wanted to keep. This also gave a lot of weeds a fair amount of time to get established. We have weeded a lot, but there is still a ways to go.
Friday and Saturday nights we spent some time at the Clive Festival. It is a community event put on by the city, with live music and fireworks each night. The music is good and the fireworks were awesome, especially on Saturday. We were up a little later than planned, but I think it was worth it.
We spent some time at the festival during the day on Saturday. The kids wanted to try out the slip-n-slide and then they spent about an hour climbing the rock wall. They could not get enough!
Sunday was more weeding and other things around the house, then swimming, then we had Mimi and Papa over for dinner.
