Big Weekend

I'll go backwards from our weekend which ended with a Labor Day Bar-B-Que in Logandale!! It was such a great day. The weather cooperated and wasn't too hot. The kids swam ALL day and the food...let me tell you about the food. Terry & Becky decided to change things up a bit from our usual burgers and hot dogs. They made the most delicious pulled pork sandwiches and Col slaw!! I tell you what I have lost 6 pounds in the last week thanks to my "diet" but i think I found a couple of the few that i "lost." I also had to opportunity to take some pics with my new camera. Man the pressure is really on. I hope you all weren't expecting GREAT pictures because I am still learning! I have a long way to go baby! Becky any time you want to hook up and teach me how to use this thing I would make my schedule open!! Well here is some of the shots from yesterday.

The cutest girl ever!!Well tied for cutest.

And her beautiful Aunt Shell!

One of the cutest boys ever (this was pre-wasp sting, you can tell by the smile on his face)

The kids had a blast with Uncle Brandon's boogie board and the swim jets. Surfin' USA!!

The other cutest girl Surfin'

And the cutest Meggy EVER!!

Moving on, in our flashback from this weekend, Saturday Night Michelle invited us to go to the "Movie in the Park" I was so fun except for the fact that I missed 3/4 of the movie thanks to Bonnie. She's still cute though. Every Saturday night the Centennial Springs shopping center puts on this really fun movie in the park. The weather was PERFECT. We saw Penelope which was just a darling movie. Next week is the Incredibles. The movie starts at dark.

"The Stinker"

This is the blow up movie screen. So So fun!!

And to begin our weekend...We started out Saturday painting. Although I know that lavender is supposed to be calming I don't think unless is is in a baby girls room it is very calming so we painted. Here is the before picture

And here is the after. It IS very calming, at least that's what Terry said. I like the blue it has a hint of aqua that will go with my new bedding. I'll post a picture when the whole room is done!

Here is where the painting continued on after the room was done. After 10 wonderful years with the Broyhill Fontana bedroom furniture I decided it was time for a change. And since we don't have the cash for new right now thanks to my new birthday present, I decided to paint white. You can see a bit of the original in the first picture but here is the finished product. Again I will post a picture when the whole room is put together!

needless to say we had a very full weekend and a very full week ahead. Check back next week for pictures of the new room with the mouldings and window casing we have planned to do on next Saturday!!
