Late this afternoon we said good bye to our daughter and grandchildren. They are now in the air on their way back home to Corey in Fort Morgan, CO. We had a wonderful three weeks with them. Now the house is feeling orderly again, but also somewhat empty. We will enjoy getting back to our regular daily life, but will miss them very much at the same time. Fortunately they will return in late July for another visit.
But as that visit came to an end today, summer was beginning! It actually reached 83 degrees here today! We enjoyed visiting with friends at breakfast, and with an old friend who stopped by later. We sat and played in the sun. After dinner Tom and I went for a neighborhood stroll, then sat outside reading until the mosquitoes found us. Ah, summer. Tomorrow we will meet up with son Jake and attend the Fremont Solstice Parade. This event, now marking it's 20th year, is know for celebrating free spirits. We hear it is funky, fun, and unpredictable. We'll let you know. This will be our first personal experience.
