Remember the carrots?
Okay. Keep that in your mind, somewhere near the front. If you don't know about the carrots, go read that post first and then come back.
On Thursday, Bill's brother, Ray, and his wife, Nina, and their elder son, DC Rainmaker, and his girlfriend, The Girl, arrived around 3:00. Ray and Nina come out every summer, and this year (and last year) the visit is timed to coincide with the Rhode Island Ironman 70.3 (which takes place tomorrow). DC Rainmaker participated last year and did great, so he's in it this year looking – in his words – to kick ass. And The Girl will also be racing, so we've got two people to cheer on this year.
Back to Thurday's arrival.
The Girl had made (the night before) and brought with her (on the plane from VA), a little surprise for the kids. The heat kind of messed with it a bit, and so she wanted to sneak it (or them, actually) into the house to do a bit of repair work before the kids could see them.
And here's what she'd brought:
Aren't they awesome????
Here's a closer look:
Little cupcake garden beds topped with radishes, a little pod of M&M beans, and, of course, carrots.
