What day is it again?

I've been feeling like I am sleep walking. I traveled to Florida last week for a work conference. I left my house at 4 a.m. on Wednesday and returned at 2 a.m. on Saturday. The time difference, conference schedule and flight delays returning home have me feeling wacky. I managed pretty well this weekend, but today I would love a 6-hour nap. Florida was hot. We were in Orlando and other than having a few delicious meals,  we didn't see much. IMG_7324

The weekend before I left, not this past one, but the one before; I just can't catch up! Anyhoo, darling Lindsey was in town from Southern California so we had a nice visit with her Dagny, Dean and Addison. Lindsey's new job is going well and her house in Southern California is great! It was so great seeing her so happy!


This Monday, Casey left to Camp Winthers for the week. Erik didn't want to say goodbye. We spent Sunday getting him ready. I hope he has a great time. A few of his friends from Mission went with him so he is all set to make amazing memories.

Casey and Abby went to Pierce Art Camp last week. They loved it!  These kids are having a great summer! All the boys have left for the summer is Vacation Bible School at St. John's and Rock Climbing Camp and then we are going camping the week before school starts!

Summer is flying by. The boys go back to school in less than a month. I am looking forward to some time off before school starts. The kids have had a lot of fun with friends. Our garden is doing fantastic. Curly got a haircut and looks cuter. Our crepe myrtle is gorgeous, again. We've enjoyed a few bike rides and a ton of swimming fun with friends and neighbors. This weekend we are celebrating Bridget, Chuck and Lila's birthday's!!


Have a good week everyone! Hugs and love to you all.



























Spiders and scorpions, oh my!

We did a little bit of everything this past weekend! We went on a gorgeous hike around Loch Leven Lakes. Pedar found a scorpion, the boys loved checking him out. The water was ice cold and very refreshing.

We worked on the yard a bit this weekend. Pedar has been digging a ditch so he can bring some water to our thirsty plants and garden. He is almost done!

I'm coming for ALL the yard yuck this year. No more weeds in cracks. No more barren, dead areas and paths that just stop. I'm going to finish the path to the pool and cover some ground with bark. I'm tired of looking at you yuck yard. It is time for you to go! I will find a way to make you look better!! OH YES I WILL!! We found several HUGE black widow spiders by the pool fence. Say hello to our friend Charlotte!

We have some crack issues we need to deal with.IMG_6822[1]

Isn't this a pretty area of our yard?!!

We went over to Nana and Papa's and had lunch with everyone and enjoyed swimming with all the kids. Later that day we celebrated our friend Ryan's birthday and had a great night out. I enjoyed a French 75 for the first time and I LOVED it.

Tomorrow is the last day of school! June 2 is also Leif and Sierra's 15th wedding anniversary! Happy Anniversary!!! Cheers to many more happy years! Hope everyone is staying cool and getting acclimated to Summer! The heat is on!!!
