A Visit from Nathan and More Yard Work

Last night, Nathan and Bridget popped in for a visit. In honor of both Tom's and Nathan's birthdays this month, father and son got together with the intention of buying each other dinner. Traffic got in the way of dinner plans, but the visit and overnight stay still happened. It was really nice to have them over, and we had loads of laughs.
Today, Tom and I worked in the yard. We interspersed the work with visiting with "the kids," and they left before 3 pm, to meet some friends in Baltimore. Tom and I continued our work, and as pictured below, we cleared the sod away from a certain section near the driveway, and dumped it in the treeline. We also marked and dug out sod for where we want to replant the bushes from the front of the house. Last of all, I climbed up the tall ladder, so that Tom (with his fear of heights) wouldn't have to, and dislodged the hornet's nest that had appeared under the front eaves. That was cool. The outer surface was like layers of paper, with different colored striations, and the inside was like a honeycomb. Afterwards, I ran to Wal-Mart for a few things, then made fried rice for dinner. Overall, it was a very productive day!
