Memorial day and anniversary

It rained and was cold, but we got to test out our chili's for the cookoff in June. They turned out pretty good, with a few changes to be made...lookin' to win, but know there are a lot of cookoff veterans that will get in my way.

The deck is awesome. They got all but the trim done and we've gotten to enjoy a few cocktails on it. Can't wait till it's completely finished and we really get to enjoy it. Emmett and Jolene play on it almost everyday. It's kinda like having an extra room on the house. We've started pulling the weeds out in the yard, only to discover a large amount of grass growing beneath it. All the seed we planted last year is really filling in great. We are going to continue the back-breaking task of pulling the weeds so maybe we'll have a yard by the 4th.

We celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary while mom watched the runchkins. Luke and I got to try out an out of the way restaurant that is half way up the North Fork, called the Trail Shop. It was good food, good wine, a great view with great company. It was slightly raining and a bit chilly, so they had the fireplace was nice. We stopped in town for another cocktail before heading home to relieve mom. We've got two more events this week where mom is filling in. Luke has an cocktail/art event on Friday night and we have a BBQ with friends on Saturday night. Luke and I are living it up for our anniversary week!
Next weekend for Father's Day we are headed to Utah to visit Trish and Cody for a bit of camping. Mom and Chrissy are driving, from separate locations, and we are meeting there on Thursday night. Should be a great time, weather permitting for the camping part....
