Mish Mosh...

So someone asked me for a photo of what my house looks like now (remember here?). Well, as of Memorial Day weekend this is what the front of my house looks like.

The first winter we lived in the home the AstroTurf blew off the front porch. We pressure washed it to get most of the 3 layers of paint and glue off, now we need to patch some of the concrete and paint it. Those day lilies we found under the bushes. We moved them to the right side of the porch.

So this is before and after.


On Memorial Day we went to my husband's aunt & uncle's house to celebrate his grandparent's (Jeff's mom's parents) 65th wedding anniversary. His grandparents crack me up. They are 2 very witty sassy people. Here are the great-grandchildren. There are 3 missing (my brother-in-law and his family did not come). Oh yeah, that is my husband in the white polo in the back.Lily cracked me up while we were there. She wouldn't let us put her down until Jeff's aunt put their dog in her crate. But after the dog was put into the crate, all Lily wanted to do was go talk to the dog.

Last year at Ian's school they replaced their Ice Cream Social with Family Fitness Night. Well, I am not, nor was I ever, a gym person. I think it is great to get kids moving and families involved, but doing aerobics in a VERY HOT and STICKY cafeteria after eating dinner is not my idea of a good time.

The kids had a fantastic time and Ian's friend was there with his dad. Lily even got into it.Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

What a difference between the before and after shots of your house. It looks lovely.

Great shots of the kiddie aerobics, too. Looks like they were having a ball.

Hey! I'm like you Melanie! I'm all for the little ones jumping about but haven't we gotten enough exercise yet? Sheesh. It never ends.

Your house looks delightful and I love the story of the Astroturf sailing in the wind.

Have a whimsical weekend!
