4th of July weekend

Last Saturday evening, a dear friend of my parents passed away. The silver lining is that we were unexpectedly able to spend some time with them this weekend. They flew in Wednesday evening and though they were exhausted from an exceptionally long day, they were good sports and we had dinner and a few fireworks before calling it a night.

Not sure why, but they're wearing biking helmets. I guess Aubrey's usually looking for a way to accessorize.


Tired Dad. :)

Thursday, we enjoyed the day together. We went on a long walk by the river, starting at the Keeper of the Plains.

Then we walked along the river, along Veteran's Memorial Park...

With a stop at the playground and by Exploration Place.

In the evening we played mini golf. Mom - why did I not get more pictures of you!?!

We ended the evening with ice cream and fireworks, of course!

We enjoyed a little time together again yesterday afternoon before they had to fly home. We're all happy that we'll be heading their way soon. It made the goodbye a little easier.
