Over the weekend we also had a Mardi Gras party, complete with lively music, king cake (yes, with baby) and many other traditional dishes (3 dishes with andouille!). Yesterday (the real Mardi Gras), Mikey was in the parade in Durham, and several of us went to enjoy the parade and dance to two great bands at the Blue Note Grill.
We have a busy couple of months coming up in terms of fun events.... a lawn party and a St Paddy's Day dinner in March; and a weenie roast and an egg decorating party in April. Something about this unseasonably warm weather just inspires people to jump up and play!
Mary moving stumps and rocks as part of site clean-up. YEA tractor!!

Marj, Mary and Dick clean up a tree they cut to provide logs for the bridge. Dave will use the smaller logs for mushrooms, so the whole tree will be put to good use!
