What a great weekend

Friday was our Nana/Papa play day with the little fellas. We only have three more Fridays with them before school is out for the summer. Of course, we'll have them over to swim often and we'll be helping as much as we can so Little Mama can get some rest.

The boys were having more fun putting the colander on their heads and playing peek a boo through the tiny holes. My own son was far more interested in the box a gift would come in that the toy inside. With Kristin, it was the ribbon and paper

We met up with Suzie and Justin, Bob and Becky for cocktails and then on to a great Mexican place for supper Friday...perfect start to a busy weekend!

I presented my two workshops at Posh on Sat and did a little retail therapy myself...
picking up some of the new Oct. Afternoon papers and embellishments for some little boy layouts.

Sat. June 4 are the last two workshops. The morning workshop is on Image Transfer Techniques and the afternoon session on foils and leafing techniques. The entire series will be repeated next Fall by request (yeah! )

Yesterday, E and I spent on phase two of the front of the house in prep for painting this fall. Our house color is washed out and we've never been fond of it to begin with. We are looking at a teal or a light chocolate. Meanwhile, we moved some plants, have made arrangements to have a dying palm cut out soon, took out the hideous hedge, planted flowers and plants and mulched (mulching was yesterday after our bike ride into town). We created a flower planter at one end of the porch and put out the new cushions for the wicker set. I slept so good last

Today we have the irrigation guy coming by to extend our system so we don't have to drag a hose down to water roses etc. in the back. We have company coming for dinner and hopefully soon the fence guys will be here to install our safety fence.

Got Janet M and I registered for the big Krop for Kids in Oct. This crop fills so fast. We'll be meeting up with our friends Beth, Jacque and Di...come join us? The money goes to a good cause and Jacque and Di have been raving about this event for the past couple of years.

More mulching on the agenda for today and more pool time. Hope your week is a great one!

OH my goodness you have been really busy- it all sounds like some good changes. I like the sound of both of the colors for your house.
