After the garden was all done, we fired up the ol' bar-b-que for the first time this year. After the initial smoke of the first firing cleared, we had delicious cheese burgers sizzling away. And oh, the wonderful smell. There's something about smelling the first bar-b-ques of the season. It makes the meal taste extra good somehow. Sorry no pictures. Everyone was way too hungry from the smells to allow me the extra time to take pictures. You'll just have to use your imagination.
Sunday was just as beautiful outside so after church we did one of favorite family things. We changed out of our church clothes, grabbed a couple of footlong subs at Subway and drove down the long and winding road to what is affectionately known around here as the "River Bottom".
Finding our usual picnic table, we downed our sandwiches quickly and headed off for our walk. Which turned into a bit of a saunter because I got the camera fired up.
Looks like we weren't the only ones who had the idea. There was lots of families and dog walkers walking the paths and enjoying the park and the sunshine.
Wrapping it up with a Frosty from the Wendy's that's at the top of the long and winding road made a perfect ending to a perfect afternoon. The only thing that could make the day better would have been an episode of the Amazing Race and an exciting playoff hockey game enjoyed from my couch. And oh, what do you know. That's exactly how I ended the day!
And now I'll put an end to this long and winding post.
