This time, they had remodeled what used to be a screened in porch that they basically used for storing stuff, and the downstairs rooms - living room and front room, kinda a sitting room. The porch is more like a sun room now, all white with wicker furniture. Beautiful.
And they added a door into their living room.
Seems a little empty now, but I hear they are putting in a pool table.
Outside on the deck, John cooked hamburgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob on the grill. The corn came strait from their fields. So. Good. And I forgot to get some for freezing. I'll have to go back soon for that. There was also greenbean and potatoes inside on the stove.
It is so peaceful there.
They have some stadium seats from when they tore down the old stadium where they went every home game to watch the Bengals play for years. They still go, but to the new stadium now.
They moved the trampoline down to the pond so you can jump off and into the pond. They also have a rope to swing out on.
It was Jonathan's birthday, and there was cake and a decorated cookie. The cake was very rich and very good.
He also got some underwear that he put on over his shorts to model for us. The catcalls were endless.
After we ate, the kids and Maggie went swimming in the pond. They all took turns on the rope and the trampoline. Conor has always been afraid to jump into dad's pool from the edge, so I wasn't worried about him jumping off the trampoline into the pond.
"Don't worry, he's not going to jump off of it. He doesn't jump into water, he's too afraid to."
Then I turned back around in time to see him jump in the pond.
