Yesterday was the welcome home party for my BIL. My mother called Friday evening to tell us they decided to have the party at her house instead of my sister's. That was really good news for me because my mother lives halfway between my sister and I so we didn't have to drive as far. It was a nice party - not too many people and a LOT of good food.
It was cloudy all day but right before sunset the clouds lifted some and the color was gorgeous.
The green flash was so bright and everyone got to see it - even one guy who said he always thought that was a myth.
We had a good time and it was nice to visit with my BIL. He had lots of interesting stories to tell about his adventures in Germany and while he likes it there he says he can't wait to come home for good.
