Basketball Hoop Pad

After spending the day yesterday enjoying myself, today was all about getting projects done.  A few weeks back we bought a bunch of pavers to build a pad for the basketball hoop and a walkway to the new garage door.  Of course I thought I could get way more done then I could actually do but I did get the pad built.  Wow it was a lot of work.  Between digging hole, leveling the sand and putting the pavers in my back was sore, but the job is done.  I still have the walkway to build but one thing at a time.

Birthday Golf


In keep with my annual tradition I met some friends over in Solon for some birthday golf.  Yes I know the picture above is, in fact, not of golf it is of me driving my car but I'm on the way to golf so it should count.  Ended up golfing fairly well for me especially since I haven't golfed much this year.  When I got home the boys and Jen had a cake made and we had a party.  All around it was a great day.

Busy Week For Jen

This has been a nuts week for Jen, between her general commitments (Church Council, Community Foundation, Boys Stuff), she has also been working on getting the Clarence Main Street Application done.  Every night this week she has had something and most nights she has been double booked on stuff.  I know she is looking forward to getting the Main Street Application done next week so that can one less ball in the air she has to juggle.  Although once that gets done it will be back at trying to get her new business off the ground.  Shaping up to be a busy year.

Clancey's Spring Concert



Tonight was Clancey's spring concert over at the Lowden Elementary.  Unlike the past years Clancey wasn't able to play the piano for the crowd because it was a folk concert that didn't require a piano.  Probably worked out for the best Clancey hadn't practiced piano in a while and I'm not sure he was prepared enough to play but that kid always surprises me so I'm sure he would have done great.  The concert was pretty good, right at an hour long and the last song was actually pretty good, for a kid concert.

Hanging at The Airport


Here we are on our way home hanging in the airport.  We have a 3 hour lay over before our next flight to Cedar Rapids so we are all hanging out on our devices like a good modern family does.
