Oma, Opa, and a worn out kid

We had a great visit from Nicki's parents, Bev and Scott, this past week. They lucked out with breaks of beautiful weather between the typical fall rain. Here is a picture of Leo with his Oma and Opa out at Kincaid park.

Bev and Scott are big into projects and staying busy so we cleared the property of downed timber and let it burn. Here is a picture of the small fire.

Also on the agenda was putting the shed up on blocks, digging ditches to improve drainage on the driveway, installing a lamp post, spreading rock to even out the lower road, and getting a giant dump truck unstuck from the mud on the lower road. (We needed a second dump truck to come pull it out. ) Even though we worked hard we also played hard. A trip up a windy Harp Mountain, down to Hanging Valley Lake, and end of year blueberry picking on the way out (those berries are still out there) was an excellent break. Here are a few photos of Scott hiking up Harp.

Leo of course had a great time with the grandparents. He was so worn out he didn't even make it to his bed to sleep.
