we had the best four day weekend!

Jay arrived home on the 4th as planned.

he loved his welcome home biscuits and gravy and the baseball cross!

his visit been laid back and fun. 

we spent the first three days just kickin', and cookin' up

yumminess around the house and

going for a country rides to some of our favorite places.

on Friday night we had a great dinner at 

The Windmill Bistro.

the weather was perfect, so we dined in l'air frais!

  5. That cross was THE perfect gift! I love it when I have a 'child' home. There is something special about having them sleep in their old room and be there to eat breakfast and hang out with the family. So very happy you had such a good weekend!
