6/20/10 Happy Fathers Day!

...all you Dad's! We had a great day here and it's a perfectly beautiful evening with fireflies flitting everywhere (the boys are all playing basketball in the driveway still), so I thought I'd share some pics outside.




My Dad is having a great day (and week) too...finger's crossed, they have a buyer for the house, at a good price, and it looks like the closing will happen in just a few more weeks. Get this...they got the offer after just 4 weeks on the market, a pre-approved buyer, couple that is in an apt. right now so no contingency and they can move right away, and the inspector only put two things on their 'fix' list (a chimney cleaning and repointing). I keep telling them how lucky they are with a 44 year old home and in this market right now.

My Dad is just thrilled that he doesn't have to go through the 'showings' daily anymore...it was getting old for him already as he doesn't like moving fast in the mornings...so all good news for him! Those three trips home to help get the house ready and all that work (with all my siblings and parents) was SO worth it now...they got great comments from all the showings (and it does look great if I do say so myself!). I hope everything goes smoothly and we'll be moving them to the new retirement place soon!

Happy Father's Day Dad (at his surprise 80th birthday party last year...doesn't he look surprised?!).
