Here is a lot of what we have been up to this summer already! It has been busy and at the same time we had to deal with a lot that we didn't want to do! In between me feeling so much like crap and being in so much pain, this is the fun we tried to have! As you know, life does not stop when you don't feel good!

We did make a trip to boston also a week after I had surgery, I will work on those pictures soon!

Sorry there are no stamping ideas for you, life has not allowed any of that fun yet, maybe soon I can show you some of what I have been doing and am in love with!

Enjoy the following posts!!!!

Dog's need a bath???

Last night Michael wanted to give Cocoa a bath as she stinks from her pool and then goes and rolls in the dirt, but of course as soon as you mention bath Bella hops right in!!!! So he let her stay and tried to wash them both at once! As I was sitting ont he couch, still recovering I heard a lot of "no, you need to stay in the bath, you're not done yet" it was so funny, each one wanted out at different times, I don't know how he get them done, but I loved that he had the patience to wash them both at once!

Our house was sparyed down well after their baths!!! Does anyone know what I mean by that? Of course first to get sprayed was me as they came to the living room to shake off! Thank you Bella and Cocoa!

House work!

House work never seems to end when your building, but I finally got the guys working!!!! Their first project of the summer is to put on the deck from our bedroom to the ground, just in case!!! I hope we never have to use it but it is required by our town!

You can't ever get away form our dog, we swear she is such a people person!!!! Here Dad is working on the stair stuff! So glad they got the deck framed and deck floor on in one day. Since then Michael is working (in his spare time) to do the railing, at this point as of today, we just need to attach the stairs and it will be done!!!! YAY, now onto the siding!!!! But we have some work to do before that really starts!

Even Jacob got in on the action when they were down, Jacob is wanting to work more, so I think he had fun learning?

Sugarland concert!

By the time we finally got to where we had to be Katelin was tired out and I was sore, so here we are just hanging out catching our breath. We were in the pit, which means if we pushed and shoved we could have been right at the stage, but of course we hung out at the back of those crazy people!

Here is those crazy people pushing and shoving to get right at stage!!! Katelin loved all the songs and knew more than she thought she would! We went to the middle of the stage to get to see the big screen in all it's glory, Katelin thought that was really cool!

See, she did love it, and even has on her new Sugarland shirt on! She is in the middle of the stage area just singing away, she wouldn't dance with me or another friend we met that night! So we danced just to get the dirty looks from Katelin, she didn't really do that, but she did have fun singing along!

That was a long night, and we had to walk up this long long hill at the end, but we made it, then we left early to get a start in the traffic, at least that is what Katelin wanted to do, sometimes it amazes me on what she thinks and wants to do! I think we only missed 2 last songs?

Flag Day ceremony

Katelin performed in the Flag Day ceremony at school! Of course right when her performance was to start it started to rain, so they went to the cafeteria to play and they did an awesome job!

All the kids did a great job! Can you find Katelin in this photo???
