Last week was such a full week, and we are anticipating this next week to be equally as full, so I felt the need to get the last couple of things from the weekend posted.
Today was a low key Sunday, which consisted of attending church and grilling out. Ryan did a ton of work on our patio over the weekend, so it was much more open and spacious. The trees around are patio are too big to be as close as they are to the building, so they tend to get overgrown easily. The previous owners should have thought a little more about planting trees with the potential to grow so big in such a small space before planting them. Our day lilies on the outside of the fence are in bloom and look great. I should have taken a photo a week or so ago, because we have already lost some of the blooms.
Saturday was super busy for us. Ryan went for a ride at Lakeshore Park to train for an upcoming Tree Farm Relay race while Keira and I attended a baptism. Later, we went over to Michelle's condo for a barbecue. She had her extended family over and invited us as well. The food was great, and it was fun to just hang out. It is funny how we haven't seen each other in a while, yet managed to get together twice in the same week.
After Michelle's, we dropped Keira off at Kris and Linda's for a couple hours so that we could attend another get together to celebrate Lisa G's birthday. Her friend was hostessing the party not far from Kris and Linda's. We enjoyed more great food and company over there as well.
Ryan thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Dark Knight. We will see it together shortly, because it is showing at the IMAX theatre at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. We will probably wait a couple weeks because our sister in law Minde and nephew Chase arrive in town tomorrow, and will spend the upcoming week doing more child friendly activities. Chase will be staying at Kris and Linda's while Tyler and Minde enjoy a trip with her family.
