Ava with Marshall
After the baseball game we all went to Dairy Queen.
Here are the 4 of them with their ice cream. Doesn't Brock look thrilled to be in the picture?
I love this picture of Marty, Marshall and Ava
So cute!! I love Marshall's face in this one
Kimba, one of my favorite bloggers is having a Garden Party Today!! You should go to her site and see all the people that have posted some beautiful summer projects and flowers, I can't wait to go through all of them and get some good ideas. I love planting flowers and making the outside of our house look pretty. It's a never ending job! I think I will always have a project I want to do or a new idea I want to try. Here are some pictures from our yard this year.
I made this chair planter this year. I love the way it turned out. I got the chair for $3 at a yard sale and the seat was missing so it was perfect for putting a pot right where the seat goes. I spray painted the chair cream and then I dry brushed black and apple green over the whole chair. I posted about this project here. This is a bird bath that we made in our Craft Club last year. This is the second summer that I have had it out I think I like it better this year than last year. When it rains it fills up with water. My super talented friend Sabrina wants us to make these again with a smaller leaf on top and a larger leaf on bottom so we can make a fountain. I think those would be so pretty!These are the flowers hanging up on our garage. To save money this year I put together my own baskets. I just went to the nursery and got a lot of sun loving plants and stuck them in this planter that I already had. They have already grown so much! I got two of these little pots of petunias at Lowe's for only $5!! I couldn't believe how cheap they were. They are by our side door. I love the white, pink and red together. Ava's tomato plants on our deck. The girl loves tomatoes!! The bigger plant are Roma tomatoes and the smaller one is grape tomatoes. They look a little droopy, I will have to water them tonight!
I love this window box right by our side door. Usually I try to do a color theme in this box but this year I just put in a lot of sun loving flowers.
I hope you enjoyed my garden tour, It will be so fun to look at all the other bloggers who are participating in the Garden Tour. Go to Kimba's blog to see more of the Garden Party
We have been Soooo BUSY lately I haven't even had a second to post. I will try to catch everyone up on what we have been up to and I'm going to try to start posting again everyday because this blog helps me remember all the fun stuff that we have done as a family. Summer is definitely the busiest time for us.
Graig and Ava with Eric another Little League Coach
Poor Brock, I need to start taking pictures of his baseball games. Usually I am so into the game that I forget to take pictures but he has another game tomorrow night and I will take some pictures of him!!
This weekend is going to be super busy because of Ava's recital and Brock's baseball and soccer games but I am going to try to sneak in one project. Isn't this the cutest window ever?? I found it on Buzzings of a Queen Bee and I knew I had to find a window like this! I searched and searched and I finally found one at a garage sale a few weekends ago, and it only cost $2! I bought some scrapbook paper yesterday so I am all set to start working on this project. It will be so fun and I will let you know how it turns out!
Have a great weekend!!
I had no idea what to call this post, I have so many things to write about today so I hope you will excuse the weird title :) I know it's all over the place and that's how this post is going to be!
