Andrew and I took advantage of our new proximity to Ohio and drove there to visit my brother and his family for Memorial Day weekend. It wasn't convenient for us to stay with them, so we thought we'd stay at my parents' house. My parents are in Peru, but we know where the spare key is, so there was no problem getting into the house.
Staying at someone else's house while they're away is like having your own vacation home in the country. We decided to live it up while we were there, so we invited my brother and sister-in-law and the kids, and had a great weekend.
|We took naps in the hammock.|
|They also had some comfy hanging chairs. Bryce likes to nap in as many places as he can.|
|We had a cookout. But then we thought we should enjoy all the amenities of the vacation home.|
|We took advantage of the large-capacity washing machine.|
|Stacey and I did a bit of welding.|
|Shawn and Andrew repaired the roof. Unfortunately, the sledgehammer was the only tool we could find.|
|We dined al fresco.|
|To cap off the day, we took a drive in the Rambler.|
