Just a quick drive to Virginia

I didn't pull out the camera much, probably b/c Jody & I were hiding in the middle of the day trying to watch a BBC movie/miniseries. Don't judge...we've got priorities! We only had 3 days with them but it was totally worth it, wish we could have had more evening walks on the golf course that just sits right out in their backyard & my girls wanted more time with Bryn & Garrett b/c they are more fun than Disneyland (true statement since they haven't experienced D.land yet) Ahh, a 14 hour drive is a drop in the bucket, let's do it again!


Here is a picture of our little photogenic Brynie, she looks cute from any angle!

Settling into summertime

Sewed these towel skirts because I like to do whatever my friends are doing (I'm a follower of cute projects) the girls loved them for the first week and now they would like to request towel dresses! So Eliza says in her ever so polite & understanding tone..."I know they will take a lot of effort Mom but they will be really cute when you're done" If I do get around to making towel dresses, I'm going to make them wear them to church to make it worth my 'effort'!

Summertime haircuts!


Uplanned Staycation

So we had a little change of plans for our typical weekend b/c Friday morning James went down to the basement & found an indoor pond. We decided not to swim in it b/c soon realized our sewer pipe needed a little fixing (Just minor repair like cutting into our front driveway & digging a massively deep hole & threatening to take the life of my favorite tree in the front yard, I'd rather keep the tree than have toilets that flush)We stayed in a Hotel for two nights, ate junk food & sat around in princess jammies...they thought it was the kind of life they should always live (as if life is rough for them at home!)
Then Sunday our friends offered their basement for us to move into but first we had to catch the snake hiding under the back porch so that it wouldn't make it's way through the fireplace & try to snuggle into our beds. Then Amelia let one of the boys hamster run free & for 5 minutes she called out "chipmunk, where are you?" The hamster was found an hour or two later so all was well.

Finally Tuesday at 3pm our pipe was fixed and I never thought I would enjoy doing laundry so much! I thought I would also remember to appreciate being able to wash dishes again but...nah, not so much.
