Pride and Joy

Since we moved into our house I have been painting like a mad women non stop. I have painted the entire house and I'm so happy to say I am almost done. Besides painting I did a couple wall projects that I'm absolutely loving. Pretty soon after we moved in my good buddies Melanie and Kenzie helped me put up this beauty. It's textured wall paper that I painted over. I loved how it turned out and thank goodness they were there to help because I had no idea what I was doing.

I just recently finished this wall and let me tell you, steciling a wall is a work of love. You would never belive how long this took. Once again I had a lovely assistant, my mother who is a pro at steciling to help give me tips.

Not looking forward to this process again. I have one more wall in a different room that I'm going to do. Yikes!

Oh and let the count down begin. My lovely parents get back from their mission in 21 days and I couldn't be any more excited!!Photobucket

Summer Fun

Summer is officially here and we are doing everything we can to get out of the heat. A couple weeks ago we headed to the lake. We had a lot of fun! Parker loved riding on the tube and here he is demonstrating his newest craze, giving the thumbs up. He learned it from this really funny kid at church.

Kennidi as you can see was not as big of a fan. Later she warmed up and wanted to ride again.

Camping season has begun and we went to new place( Bear Flatts) last weekend. We loved it because it was so close and we were right by a creek. This was our first camping trip with all three kids so I was a little nervous but everything went very smoothly. The kids just loved being outside and exploring nature.

You can't get any more rugid and mountain men like then Parker.

This baby couldn't get enough of being outside all day long.

Every time we camp we go to great lengths to make sure the kids are comfortable and warm but it never fails they always end up in our bed.

Parker fished for the first time and he was obbessed with it the whole time. Gotta say he was quite the natural.

They loved looking for crawdads.

Ahh young love. These two are 5 days apart and as you can see they are soulmates. We are so glad our friends the Smiths came up for one night. We had a blast.

The love did not end there. Tanner was so cute and full of love as they left.
