Yeah! We are SOOOO glad that the sun has FINALLY made an appearance! It seems that the weather has made up it's mind to finally be warm--WOOHOO! We took FULL advantage of the beautiful weather today. Jon got the pool set up for the kids and the sprinkler going, and we also set up our portable gazebo for our back patio--LOVE IT! It is so nice to sit in the backyard in the shade and still be able to take advantage of the weather.

The kids had a BLAST playing in the water today! LOL Aleigha had SOO much fun splashing and stomping in the water! It was wonderful to see her enjoy this. Jake had fun showing off for Dad (I had to run an errand)--especially, in front of the camera! He is so funny! Doesn't like to hold still for a minute! Our own little hummingbird! XP

Speaking of running errands...I went yardselling with my good friend, Shana, this morning. We hit a couple of places but we were not that impressed. We even went by a couple of more "well-to-do" sales and, I swear, they were not getting rid of anything but junk! I hate to say it, but, well, it seemed rather true. Finally, we got to one sale and BAM! I found something I had to have! Found a wooden bench, for outside, that glides for only 10 bucks! It could use a fresh coat of varnish and sealant, but it is in good condition. I also, found one of those portable sun shades--brand spankin' new! It's the kind that is collapsable and folds up for easy storage. I plan on taking it with me when we go to the pool this summer and maybe even the park.

We went a few other places, but at our last yard sale I found a table for our dinning room! I have been looking and looking for one. Each time I would find one I liked I felt that it was WAY over-priced and the people were usually very firm. I was very happy with the price and it is in EXCELLENT condition. So, we loaded it up and brought it home! YEAH! Can't wait to actually see it in my dinning room...have to get the other one out first.

So, all-in-all, it has been a good day! Pretty eventful, if I say so myself! Here are some pictures of the kids! Pictures of my finds will come later.

Down and Dirty!

LOL The title says it all! Here are a few pictures from today. Finally got some new sand for the sandbox...needless-to-say, the kids LOVED it! Especially, Aleigha! XP

Mother's day!

Well, today has been a pretty good day. Even though my kids woke me up at 7:20 this morning. I wanted to share what I made for my mom for Mother's day. I thought this was a wonderful gift, and I am SO glad that she loved it! I hope you enjoy it as well.
