Dawn and Connor and Evan got together with a man from their ward and worked on this project for Robert for Birthday/Father's Day. We were going to Columbus to the temple yesterday but realized that it's the same distance up to Detroit...and Robert could bring home his gift that's he's been salivating over.
We had a lovely day in Dawn's neck of the woods. She had lunch prepared for us (our favorite Chix/Pasta salad) and then we went to the temple. Afterwards Dawn, Adelle and I took in a short shopping trip and came home to dinner of a Steak/cheese fajitas on the grill. Ken was able to get home in time to eat with us. Of course Evan, the pickle juice drinker (through a straw no-less) was there too...but Connor was on The Trek. Usually I say 'stupid trek' because you know how I feel about this activity and was so happy that Adelle was smart enough to not to want to go and wasn't talking into going just to say she went.
We took our leave and before we left Michigan itself, Robert noticed this rainbow. Sent it to Dawn who replied, 'A perfect end to a perfect day." And it was.
This morning, the best guy friend arrived ready to help Robert install it. Ken Barlow arrived with the spray and the electric drill and stainless steel screws. He inspected it, saw that it was Cedar and said what Dawn and the boys had put on it would be fine, that it would just weather quite well and turn white or grey UNLESS we wanted something else to keep it more as it it today.
