What's in a perfect Saturday?

Yesterday may have been the best day ever. It didn't feel like it at first, though. Work-bud Melodie gifted us some bedroom furniture, which was awesome. I love this set, but DANG is it heavy. We woke up early to start moving furniture around and cleaning. Wore me OUT.

When we got done, Grammy arrived. She came for the weekend because Kevin's birthday is on Tuesday. With here was my 23 year old son Jonathan (no, I'm not old enough for that...he's my step-son, so stop calling me old, OK?) and my nephew Steven.

Grammy had brought some home grown peaches-and-cream corn, as well as some zucchini and yellow squash. She had black berries and made a cobbler, and I went to mom's to get some tomatoes. The zucchini and squash, corn-on-the-cob, and marinaded chicken breasts all went on the grill.

While Kevin was cooking, Brett brought Kameron over to see us. Brett and Jonathan don't get to see each other much, so it was a treat. We all laughed and talked while Kevin grilled. Jonathan and Monica took turns strumming on the guitar, and my heart started smiling. At dinner time, we put the leaf in the table and added a couple of folding chairs and desk chairs to fit everyone in.

I cannot tell you how great it was to have everyone together around the table. The food was awesome, but the company and laughter was perfect. Kevin and I smiled through the whole meal. After dinner, Jonathan went home with Brett for the night. It's good that they enjoy hanging out together.

We enjoyed the rest of our evening with Kami and a movie. I have a couple of pictures from dinner, but I hadn't reset the color balance on the camera, so they're pretty crappy, but I'll share them anyway.
