Memorial Day Weekend

I guess we made the most of Memorial Day weekend, considering that Rob was working midnight shifts again! He would leave for work around 6:00pm, work all night, get home around 8:00am, sleep until 3:00, then start the cycle all over again. It was so disappointing that he had to work all weekend, as it was just glorious weather. He has four days off now, though, so hopefully he'll be able to get a lot done around the house.

Our big accomplishment over the weekend was dropping a ton of money at Lowe's! It was a military appreciation weekend with 10% discounts for all military personnel, and we definitely took advantage. Among the purchases: a new washer and dryer, a grill, a couple ceiling light fixtures, a screen door for the back entrance, several plants and bushes for the backyard, solar lights...and the list goes on and on! Rob definitely has his work cut out for him this week!
The cats are normally indoor cats, but sometimes we'll let them join us when we're working outside. Oliver in particular always enjoys the great outdoors!

One of our purchases over the weekend was string lighting for the arbor in the backyard. It almost feels like you're on vacation in Key West or something. Almost...

Rob and the new grill we bought over the weekend. We grilled steaks and corn-on-the-cob tonight. And it was delicious!

We discovered we have a frog living in the swamp that it is our koi pond. I'm not fond of frogs, but Rob seems excited. :-)
