For this year, Ken, Connor and Evan arrived from Michigan. Hank got off work in time to pick up Henry and arrive. Jordan drove right up from Columbus and looks forward to perhaps next year when his Robert will be old enough to come and play. Robert was thrilled.
When all is said and done, this is my favorite photo and I decided to post this first:
Here is Connor sitting and talking with Henry. Can you just see or imagine how thrilled Henry was to have the attention of his grown up cousin!
Below is Jordan setting up his tent, big enough to sleep him and Robert. Robert had purchased an inflatable bed when we were with Jocelyn the week before. He inflated it before he left and transported it in bed of the truck. Funny!
While the men were camping, Dawn cut and installed a belated birthday gift for Robert.....a moustache for his truck!
The next weekend (Memorial Day weekend), Robert insisted on making more memories ... this time with Hank. Hank was clearing out some overgrown plants and making a base for his pizza oven. Again, Robert wanted to be included in the play...hopefully Hank didn't mind too much. Since he had rented an auger he was generous and used it here to make 2 holes for the fence portion that Robert was planning to install on the west side of our house so that the grapes could grow up and not along the ground.
Then it was time to get the pizza base set up. They mixed up cement and poured it down 4 tubes. When that set, the base was installed.
Remember my little robins? Well, look:
Guess there are memories for all creatures to make!
