Inspiring Weekend

Mark and Robin came to see us this weekend and we had such a great visit! (and no, I didn't take one picture!) On Saturday, we walked around outside the house and they gave us some great tips and suggestions for our boring yard. We went to a local "idea garden" (I didn't know there was such thing as an idea garden) to help us get inspired and then they bought us a few plants to help us get started. They downloaded a PowerPoint of the landscaping 101 class they give and Robin walked me through it. I can't wait to get going!

On Sunday they met us after church and we had a lovely afternoon eating hamburgers and the yummiest corn (which they brought from the Dallas farmer's market) and playing a little backyard baseball and looking at the prettiest pictures of their house in Canada and a National Park they had visited earlier in the day. (Mark is an excellent photographer.) It was hard to say goodbye when it was time for them to go.

Thank you for everything Mark and Robin! We love you so much!
