Life has been busy at the McDougalls Home and I am a bit behind on my posts.

We did not go camping over the Memorial Day weekend.  Rather, we went on a nice picnic on Saturday at a campground about 15 minutes away from our house.  We had a real fun time.  Click the picture on the left to see more of our fun picnic.

On Memorial Day (Monday), we had to stick around to receive a load of about 33,000 pounds of blocks for our retaining wall.  We have a retaining wall in our back yard that was quite delapidated, and in dire need of replacement.  With our wonderful children’s help, we tore the old one out and we are in the initial stages of building a new one.  It will be very nice when we place the last of the 33,000 pounds in place. Whew!  Click the picture on the left to see it so far.

Memorial Day weekend is this coming weekend. We have made it a tradition to go camping with some friends every Memorial Day weekend; and this year will be no exception. It may be a very interesting weekend as we are having the strangest mix of weather conditions. There are snow warnings, winter warnings, flood warnings; and we will be in the middle of it all next to a rising river. And we WILL have fun, if it kills us! I say that in jest of course, but it may be by choice that we decide to have a good time, as it may not come naturally. What are you doing this weekend? Make sure you take some time and remember those that have gone on before us and for our country, and don’t make your weekend an excuse to miss church. We all need to go. Have a great weekend in whatever you are doing. John
