Five on Friday - Let's Catch Up

Wow is time flying!  I didn't realize it had been so long since I've updated you on our goings-on.

End of June

A deer was in our yard one morning.  Took us ALL by surprise.  Especially considering how close we are the interstate and in a non-usual habitat for them.

The weather was cool (70's and occasional rain) so we took multiple walks around the neighborhood every night before bed.

Also, LOTS of picnics on our patio :)

4th of July

Thursday morning, Justin headed off to golf and I took the boys downtown.  The City celebration didn't start until 10, so I made sure we got to the park at 9.  #wiggydiggy was able to play at the playground before it got crowded, go on the bouncy slide by himself (and without paying!) because we were so early.  The staffers had the best time watching his antics before the chaos started.  They were so nice to let him in free of charge and bounce as long as he wanted.  Our last stop was the Hospital's booth with their learning ambulance.  We scooted out of there right after 10 and missed the crowds!  Perfect morning.

Some friends came over for dinner.  The kids set off their small fireworks and #biggywigs headed to bed.  For the first year, #wiggydiggy actually wanted to stay up and watch the big fireworks! (read: our neighbors setting off their own)  He had the best time and very politely told Dad "I'm done" when he wanted to go to bed.

Weekend Trips

We drove up to Lincoln, MT one Saturday to visit the Blackfoot Pathways Sculpture in the Wild.  It was the first hot day of the summer, so when we got home we filled up the pool and stayed on the porch until dinner time.

House Projects

Projects have slowed down considerably since the floors were done.  We still have the Master Bathroom, repainting of trim work/doors, last of the windows, and kitchen counter tops to do.   Our new front storm door has been ordered and will arrive in another week or two!  I'm hoping we can get the painting done in August so we have have a quiet fall.
I originally did NOT want a line in the middle of my door, but after using the retractable screen on our back door, I LOVED the ease of opening and closing it.  We went with the same color as our windows (Bronze) with a Modern Brushed Nickle handle. 

Work Trips

It's time for me to get back on the road.
Much to the chagrin of my husband.

And of course I start it off with a bang - 5 days in a classroom in Chicago.
