Shortly after his retirement, they officially became residents of Bismarck. In fact, their home is just down the road from my younger brother's place. They still have their land and their home in Watford City though so whenever my dad starts missing home, he can always go back to visit! They were blessed to have met some great people to rent their home out to who moved here from California to work in the Bakken.
|Welcome to my parent's new place! (I made that sign when I was a freshman in high school!)|
|My youngest sister, dad and me on Father's Day.|
This past week, my sister came up from Lincoln, NE and my sister-in-law came out from Baker, Montana. My parents had a family get-together at their home this past weekend where I had a great time visiting with siblings, in-laws and aunts. I didn't see too much of the kids as the youngest four spent most of the time outside and the older ones hung out in the basement.
|Our sister-only evening - supper at the Walrus!|
This is our new nightly summer tradition - I come home, we have supper, we watch Wheel of Fortune then gather all of our stuff to spend the rest of the evening outside on the patio. It is practically dark outside before she wants to come back inside! I love this new tradition as it is so relaxing for me after a stressful day at work.
