The first "kind of" chilly morning

It was a scramble this morning finding jeans, socks and shoes.  Owen probably hasn't worn a pair of socks for 6 months.  But he seemed to want to run everywhere . . .  was it the shoes, the cold, or the spider-man hoodie?

Day 1 - Bingham reunion

Today -- most of the flights were delayed, but almost everyone made it.  Tobi, Terri, and Vicki came of the sisters.  The cousins were -- Jennie, Maria and Annie (from Tobi's family) and Heather and Mikayla (from Vicki's family).  Michelle (from Terri) but she didn't arrive until midnight.

And then Amber drove up from Houston.  She got stuck in the center of the storm and then the road flooded (I-45) and they closed the freeway.  Eventually she was able to exit and get back on and drove back to Houston because there was no way to drive north.  She was in her car for 12 hours.

She is now going to fly here in the morning.

Getting ready

This weekend forecast is not my favorite -- We are having the Bingham ladies reunion and a lot of rain.  

Owen wanted to know where to plant oreo seeds so we could grow our own Oreos.

Our watermelons are delicious!

Our volunteer watermelons were harvested today. They were delicious. Owen was filled with delight. These grew from spitting seeds in the grass and then pulling them up and throwing them in a flower bed where they rooted anyway.  All from a "supposedly" seedless one.

What I did during sacrament meeting

They need an emoji for a full head of grey hair -- instead I gave them a turban.
