Memorial Day Weekend Is Coming!
The 'official' first holiday weekend that kicks off the summer is almost upon us! Memorial Day '08 will be great! We are planning to take a ride up to Overgaard, AZ on Saturday to visit the MMA State Rally. It's 157 miles each way, so I've started doing some stretching exercises each day in preparation for that, so I'll be able to walk after the ride. :) It will be a beautiful ride, though! I'll try to take pics to post later! We're not staying overnight, because we're having our annual Memorial Day party at our house on Sunday. We've been getting the yard and the pool ready for that. I'm hoping that the fire extinguisher stays hidden for this party...that stuff is cold through jeans, I can't imagine it on bare skin! :) Monday will be a day of rest, hanging over, and cleaning up. We've noticed, though, that we have some really great friends. After the last few parties we've had, we haven't had much to clean up afterwards. There's no empty cans or bottles left in the yard. Everyone uses the ashtrays, so there are no cigarette butts all over the yard, in the pool, etc. It usually only takes us a few minutes to clean up outside and inside, load the dishwasher and vacuum. I want my friends to know that we really appreciate that! I've helped some friends clean up after parties at their houses, and we have found several pairs of sunglasses in the pool, cups, cigarette butts, drinking glasses, bottles, cans, everything in the pool and all around the yard. I thank all of my friends for not leaving my yard and pool a total disaster area! I will be blogging on and off over the next week, as I'm trying to spend as much time as possible with Eric while he's here with us. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
