Comings and Goings

Sunday afternoon Greg, Jen, Liam and Weston came for supper and the night on their way back home. Paxton and Liam had fun playing together again. Monday was a nice rainy spring day. It had been kind of dry so the rain was needed. Today Bronson came over and played with Paxton all afternoon. Sounds like they had a good time. The kids are on spring break here so no school this week. Well, that is the latest from here.

Nice Spring Day!!

Paxton saw Casey the next door neighbor's kid and Garret playing outside and wanted to go play with them. So he ran down to their house and played with them for awhile this afternoon. Then after supper we took a walk and stopped at their house again to see them ride their dirt bikes. We also helped Brad set up a Zip Line for the girls this afternoon. They all had a couple of turns on it and really liked it. The weather was really nice today so it was great to spend some time outside for a change. Maybe Spring is FINALLY here!! Let's hope!!
