Been thinking about traveling. I love a nice trip away. Not sure where we might go. I know that when the babies come we will be heading to Texas for a while. We would also like to travel come late winter. It's always nice to get out of here when it's cold and snowy. We'll have to see what time brings. I'm sure we'll get away somewhere.

Ethan's Wedding

What a weekend we have had. Sat. was Ethan's wedding. It was way up north and our oldest son Josh and his wife Diana flew in for the occasion. They live in Texas. Our daughter Jenna and her husband Scott also went along. We stayed in a town close by to the wedding location and had so much fun together. The following day we went to the cities and shopped , ate and laughed. Both girls are very pregnant. Both are due in Oct. Fun to get them together. Our youngest son, Jake came home and watched Zoe for us while we were gone.

New Home

Sounds like our daughter and her husband are going to be closing on their first home, this week. They are so excited about it. We looked at homes with them and feel that they are getting quite the deal. It is a really nice house. It's a ranch style, 3-4 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, family room and more. It will be fun to help them move and decorate. I usually try to take a few days off so I can help out with unpacking and setting up their home with them. Sounds like they'll be moving next week sometime.

80th Party

Bill and I were shopping over at Walmart and I ran into several of my relation. First I saw my Aunt and Uncle. While we were visiting, my cousin (their son) walked up and joined us. Then a few minutes later another cousin (his brother) walked up with his two sons. We had a great time catching up on family. They invited us to my Uncle's 80th Birthday party that is going to be held this weekend. That would be fun to attend. We'll have to pass however. We have a wedding coming.

Well, we will finally have a weekend home this week. We need to redo our upstairs bathroom. I'm looking forward to that. It needs a make over. We need to strip off the old wallpaper, paint , repaper and put up all of the new things I have purchased for it. I think it will look very cute. Fun to do something new. We've been trying to up date things around here. Hope we can get it all done over one weekend. :)

Mp3 Player

Are you one to get the latest in technology? Well, I don't know if this is the latest, but my husband really wanted an Mp3 Player. He finally found one that he likes. It's a SanDisc. He's hoping to use it while he's out running. Should be nice for him.

Deck Furniture

We recently bought some new furniture for our deck. The table and chairs we had were still in good shape but I wanted something new. I wanted a different look so we got a small metal swing and a round table to match. I am going to put a potted plant on the table. I would also like to buy a matching lounge chair so that guests will have a place to sit too. It has been so nice sitting out on the deck in the evening. We can watch the rabbits, squirrels and birds from the deck. I think we have some bunnies living under the deck. Our dog, Zoe, knows they are there but can never seem to catch them. I know that Zoe would just play with them anyway.

Birthday for Bill

Bill's birthday is in just a few days and I am not sure what to get him. I could always get him the usual socks and shirts but that just doesn't seem appropriate this year. He has been talking about golf a lot lately and he hasn't gotten to golf as much as he would like. Actually I would like him to golf more and maybe take me with him so I can learn how to play. I have noticed he has been checking out new clubs but I wouldn't know which ones to buy for him. I may have to just take him shopping for the clubs he wants.

Fewer Bugs

Usually we have fought the bugs in the summer, especially mosquitoes. This year has been different than others in that we have had very few problems with those little pests. I am not sure why there hasn't been as many mosquitoes but I am not complaining at all. It has been raining regularly so I don't understand why they haven't been around. I am not sure if our city has been spraying for bugs but if they have I presume that is why we have fewer bugs.

Fourth Of July

I can hardly believe the Fourth of July is already upon us. This year has gone by so quickly. I know several people that will be boating and doing other things by the lake. Others will be traveling to see family in and out of state. Many of the neighboring towns in our area have great fireworks on the night of the 4th. I think that my husband and I will go see some, just not sure where yet.
