Family Day

No stamping today... maybe once the kids are settled in for the night though.

We had a totally busy day. We were up at the crack of dawn for a delivery of sand for the new sandbox that Ed is building for Zachary. It is going under the tree house that Ed built this spring. My hubby is awesome! He built this all by himself! *grin*

After the sand was delivered we piled into Ed's truck and brought some banquet tables to an indoor sports facility that my dad owns. Then from there we drove to Lawrence to see a B-17 from WW2. DH and I think it is so important for our children to have a working knowledge of our history. (I was a history major.) So we jump on every chance we get to explore "living" history with them. Here is a pic of the Aluminum Overcast. I took video while dh did the pics. If I can figure out how to upload video here I will do it.

The afternoon was spent at a birthday party, and then some much deserved pool time for Ed and the kids. I cooked away the afternoon for the five of us, plus for a dear friend who is recuperating from surgery and her family. We all ate like kings, baked ham, asparagus, carrots, Lemon Chicken Rice soup and fruit salad for dessert. Yum!

While reading my ever growing list of favorite blogs I came across a fun game at Lauren's (My Time) Blog. So I'm gonna have some fun with this and then try to sneak away for some stamping...
