 It was a weird and quirky weekend to say the least!  John went up north to our cottage to play golf and mow the lawn.

The boys all went to Andrew's apartment for a bachelor party weekend.
So Anna and I were left to fend for ourselves.  We had a blast eating out, shopping...she even gave me a pedicure!

She invited a friend over and they made themselves some delicious pancakes for breakfast on Sunday morning!

 and by the way, Happy Birthday (Yesterday) to my Dad!!  I love you!!!

Nothing but blue skies

 We took a drive to the lot that we bought and let the dogs run around.  So many good smells!  Bella liked hanging her head out of the window on the way home!

 Anna had a chorus concert last night.  I attended the afternoon performance and snapped this picture.  She is an alto in the choir!

 The band played too.  I thought Gma Ellie and Gpa Walt would get a kick out of this....  See the girl with the silver trumpet??  That's my hubby's trumpet from middle school.  We were happy to loan it to this sweetie.  She has been playing it for 3 years now!

 and guess who is home from college now???   BEN!!

Post Graduation

 After graduation, we headed back to Andrew and Courtney's apartment and had some soda to cool off. Gma and Gpa had never seen their new place.  Andrew is currently living there now and Courtney will move in after the wedding. 

We celebrated by going to a restaurant called "Quaker  Steak and Lube."  It looks like a place that you would have your oil changed, but it's a restaurant.  Here's the group, waiting for a table!

 Inside the restaurant

 Even though it was warm outside, I ordered the loaded baked potato soup- delicious!
 Courtney got chicken wings with medium sauce and loaded fries!
