Back to Nature

We took the kids on a nature walk today. Yes it was hot but it was so nice to get away from all the hustle and bustle of a town/city. If we were back home in Southern Illinois we would see this kind of thing all the time. (I sure do miss it) So we didn't want the kids to become complete city kids and only see these kinds of things threw pics or at some zoo, so we will visit this nature center again. We did stumble upon a fawn but mommy was taking to many pics of the turtles and i missed them. oops! What can i say I love turtles.

Back to Nature

I love to watch the squirrels play.

The Best Part of Summer

Water melon and Home made ice cream the best part of summer.
My family came out to visit this weekend so did i get my chest of drawers finished? NO. oh well, we had a great time, we went to Branson Mo. We went to the dinosaur museum, The Bass Pro shop, The apple tree mall, and you can not forget Dicks five and Dime(only the best store out there). On Monday we had some people out for a shrimp boil and of course home made ice cream. Now that's what i call a good summer.

new and old project

Boy, it sure has been hot. So hot i have not had the energey to do any thing.
However i did drag myself to a yard sale on saturday and found a chest of drawers for my son. They just need a little TLC and that is what we have been doing today. Sanding, sanding, sanding. I sanded the chest of drawers, the post the mail box is on (its a beautifule ceter wood and i wanted to show it off) and had to re leval it and fianally got my water pump out in the little flower garden. Boy when you have two little ones it sure takes so much longer to do a project than it use to. Either i am getting old or its having kids. I'll blame the kids. Well we shall sand a little more tomorrow and then paint the chest of drawers red.
