Holiday week is over. (Finally!)

I'm almost looking forward to going back to work, almost. I hope everyone enjoyed whatever activities they participated in over the last week. We started off with a trip to the family lake house last weekend. Alex wanted nothing else but to ride and drive the ATV. I held him at 3rd gear and 15 miles per hour!

We went into North Bend and got some chain, a hitch pin and some other items. My Mom has a drag harrow and we rigged it up to drag the beach. It looked pretty good after repeated passes with the harrow spikes pointing down. We're still trying to find the right combination to make the beach smooth and grass/weed free. We don't spray the grass or weeds with pesticides or herbicides as they'll end up in the lake where we swim. 

After two days at the lake we headed back to Lincoln. I worked two days and then was off the rest of the week. We next went to Seward for our annual 4th of July celebration at my Mother-in-laws. This 4th of July marks 25 years that my wonderful wife and I have been with each other. I am very lucky! We watched Alex light off his fireworks on July 3rd and we went back on the 4th for Seward's public firework display. It was pretty good even if it ended poorly compared to years past. 

While we were in Seward on the 3rd, we honored Pete's request to spread some of his ashes along the railroad tracks at the depot where he worked for so many years.  

Have a good week everyone and keep cool.
