Our Saturday

We started the day by sending a couple of boys off to work while Wayne wrote his talk for Sunday.  
It was a gorgeous day in paradise so we decided to pack a picnic to take to the next city park on the list - Essex Park.  Our timing was perfect, and we can verify that the gazebo does shelter you from the rain.  Fortunately, we were able to dodge raindrops on the way there and back, but by the time we were done eating, the beautiful sun had disappeared for the afternoon.
In fact, it was downright gray and stormy.  Once the worst of the rain passed, we went out to go to Home Depot and discovered this:
Someone told Wayne we got 2 1/2 inches of rain in just one hour.  That was too much for the storm drains to handle, so a small lake formed in front of our house.  The teenagers next door decided to have some fun - that's them in the white truck.
We gave the "lake" a chance to disappear (it took about another hour) before completing our errands.  Now we have the supplies to start the next shelf in the pantry.
Bottom shelf completed!
In the evening we enjoyed a good-bye party for some friends.  We'll miss them, but it was nice to be able to get to make new friends as a result.  

And that was our Saturday!
