This weekend a lot of the family got together at Thacher's Park for a little family reunion. It was so good to see everyone, a great time was had by all.
Hopefully this is one tradition we will continue for years to come.
Brenda took a lot of great pictures, I am have posted a few below, the rest will be in the 2011 Family Reunion Album of the Gallery. Deb has added her pictures to Facebook, which I will try to add to the Gallery as well. If anyone else has pictures that they want me to add, please send them. enjoy!
Well, it's been a while since my last post. Summer is officially here. It's 4th of July weekend. The water is back to normal levels, and we have started to repair the damage from the flooding. Matthew and Kiana both graduated from high school last weekend, our driveway at home is finally useable. The roadster is running well, and the sun is shinning. All in all, life is good.
I have tons of pictures that I haven't downloaded from the camera, maybe someday soon I will get caught up on that stuff, and start posting more regularly here... Maybe.
Time to start building that ark. Where did Noah leave those blueprints?
The house is surrounded. The water level has dropped a few inches, but it's been raining again for the past 2 days. I hope the rain doesn't push the water levels too much higher. We can't take much more.
So after nearly 13 years it's time to do some painting inside the camp. We painted most of the interior several years ago, but just went with the same boring white that was always there. this time around we are putting some more effort in to it, and adding color. We started a couple of weeks ago patching and prepping the kitchen / dinning room and living room downstairs. we have a couple of coats of the main color on the kitchen and dinning area walls. We have some accent wall colors planned, so that will be the next step before moving on to the living room. So just for my own sanity, here are some before and during pictures. It's not completely done yet, so I won't call any of them "after" shots. Now the pictures don't make the color choice seem very exciting, but what a difference in person, and there are some more exciting colors to come.
The dogs are not to happy about the project, but they'll get over it.
I really love climbing extension ladders to cut in the high ceilings!
But I finally made some progress.
And the view now that the first color is done. Just have to put some things back together
we probably wont get any more done this weekend since it is Easter, and my parents are coming up. It will be nice to have a break anyway. But in a couple of weeks, I hope to see even more progress.
