On Labor Day, we went to Lyons, Ks to spend the evening with Al's family.
There is a pool out back.
Reuben grilled burgers.
Seems like many times we end up bringing the same dish. This year, the "same thing" we all brought was macaroni salad. One time we all brought green bean cassserole. Sometimes we let eachother know what we plan to bring, but often we bring whatever. We can count on Julie to bring her cheesy potatoes, but this time she made twice-baked potatoes and put them in the crock pot. Delicious!!
Reuben and Brenda are empty nesters now. Brenda took us upstairs to one of the girls' closets and showed us all the beautiful gowns (prom or other special occasions) that are still hanging in the closet. She told our nieces that they could try them on if they would come downstairs to model them.
We laughed and laughed and laughed. You can just see Reuben trying to keep from crying from laughing so hard.
Hopefully for Reuben's, they will sell their home quickly so they can move to Hutch! But we will miss the fun times we have had here with the family!
