After attending Robin's wedding in Washington DC, SRQ came home for a visit. She was mostly here to help her mother organize and host a baby shower for Hope Crow at SACII and Cheryl's house in Springfield. It was fun to see lots of people we love.
Based on the photos, they apparently had a good party for Hope. Sam, Andy and I helped set up for the party then bailed out to do some male bonding. We started with a juicy burger at Galloway Station and then off to Saddlebrooke to view the building site Sam and Cheryl bought at auction the week before. Nice view.
Except for Sam's LBC (little blue car) getting damaged ($2,338.68) by the neighbor's bad driving ...
it was a great trip. Unfortunately, SRQ went home the next day.
To fulfill one of Helen's life-long dreams, Friday night we joined fun friends Bill and Julie on Lake Perry for a sunset cruise on their 30 foot sail boat.
It was wonderful. The weather was perfect. Only 30 minutes from Topeka in time but worlds away in relaxation. Thanks Bill and Julie ... it was a blast!
We waved goodbye to September as we sailed into the beautiful Kansas sunset.
