Another good weekend

I had Friday off and it was a great start to another good weekend. We didn't do much of anything. As a matter of fact, Amanda said to me Friday, "What are we going to do this weekend?" We came up with nothing, which was the right answer. We needed a weekend of hanging loose and hanging with the boys.

The one accomplishment of the weekend was our new picnic table. Amanda said that she wanted and "old school" picnic table for Mothers' Day. So the boys and I went and bought it last week. It came in a very small box for a picnic table. Actually it was a picnic table KIT. It should have taken an hour or so to put together. After putting it together and taking it apart approximately three times, we finally put it out on the patio last night. It was very fun to have the boys help out and to see how excited they were when we finished it. This will be the locale of many Gammons family dinners. I hope some of you will come and join us.

Oooohh. Love the table...but, it's crying out for a few BBQ sauce stains! May I make a contribution? Can't wait to come home. I've had enough Champaign (not champagne) to last a good long time!

Looks cool - congrats! That would've taken me 3 hours:

Try it without the directions, take it apart, try it with the directions, curse the directions, take it apart, try it with the directions...hide the leftover brackets and bolts in a closet - tell everyone to sit VERY STILL while they eat.

Nothing like an old school picnic table!! I'm looking forward to some good summertime meals on it soon.
