How we spent our Memorial Day Weekend.....

Image
We moved into this house 3 1/2 years ago and it needed painting then! It was trimmed in my least favorite shade of green and had patches of mold and primer and needed a serious makeover.

A couple of weeks ago, we decided that with a 3 day weekend coming up, it was time....

Broc powerwashed it on Saturday........and to the rescue all the way from South Carolina came...

Painter Extraordinaire ...Cameron Lovejoy!!!

Brenna helped out for awhile...at least long enough for a photo opportunity....
Broc and Cameron painted all day Sunday and Monday and by Monday evening we were ready for a Memorial Day party ...

Duncan Lovejoy had been visiting us for a few days and was very happy to have his brother join us....

During the evening, I discovered my first RED RIPE STRAWBERRY....plant courtesy of Kelly Lovejoy :-)



Brenna took a turn in the hammock.......


The house is so pretty now....colors I love.....and it was so fun having Cameron with us for the weekend. He makes house calls, so if anyone needs a…

We've been happy and busy with lots of visitors and comings and goings and I haven't taken the time to blog in awhile. I have been taking pictures so I chose a few to share some of our recent doings.....



My brother, Skip, my niece, Kristle and my nephew, Ethan, came for a visit from New Mexico so we had many family gatherings for a couple of weeks..Here's Brenna doing a Henna tattoo on Kristle's foot.

Here she is with Kristle doing a birthday toast to Skip. An added note here....my mom is 84 and drives herself all around town....is still taking classes learning Spanish and now French as well as going to the po…

I've been tagged by Kelli to take a picture with no primping allowed as soon as I read the tag...so here I am with my great-nephew, Ethan, who is having a sleepover with Broc and me tonight. He jumped on my back for the photo opportunity!

Logan is gone on a walk-about (although they are driving) with Cameron Lovejoy and is in Rhode Island right now and Brenna is finishing up her semester at New College in Sarasota so we decided it was time to import another child for the night. Four year olds are so fun!!!

I have my hands full right now so I'm not tagging anyone....maybe tomorrow :-)
