CLICK ME: Corner 4 beds  / All 3 colors
We still aren't too sure about this color. We are going to leave it up for awhile and maybe paint it again next weekend. We had originally thought a leather faux in red, but I wanted to do something like that in another room, so we really don't know.
Ted got most of the electric stuff done, and has a few more things to do when he has time.

Look its not Ted this time

See we aren't the only ones who have crocs! This is my friends purple croc.  One of her sons got the TREND going.
Velvet Ant

Doesn't he look like he's having fun

Lets go hit those hills again
I don't know what I like best dirt & rock throwing or riding?

We got to visit with some very good friends today. One of their sons rode Shane and Colby around all day long on his 4 wheeler. I know he was so tired but he kept riding and riding with them. I have to remember to thank him for being such a nice guy to the kids. Shane and Colby think these brothers are some of their best friends. I don't think they realize the 12 and 10 years in age difference. Matthew couldn't join in on all the fun because he was out having fun with other friends and he met up with us real late tonight as we were leaving. I have videos of them riding but won't have time to post them until sometime next week. We also put up a new gazebo Ted got for us this morning but I haven't even had a chance to take a picture of that yet either.

I have food in my mouth I can't smile MOM
Take a picture of my apple
It seems like latley I've barely had a few moments to post on the blog. I missed one day this week because we've just been doing alot. Also the batteries have been going dead on the camera. I have to change the setting on the Canon but just havn't had time. Everytime I charge up the batteries I have forgotten to change the setting and then the go dead again. We had 8 kids in the pool the other day and all of the cameras had dead batteries. This wasn't counting Colby or another little 10 mth old guy (I was so disappointed that I didn't get all the fun on film) Today Colby and I had a day or at least part of the day to ourselves. Shane was at a playdate at a friends house. (we actually have these scheduled all summer long all 5 year old boys) I know they have lots of fun. Sometimes Colby can tag along but this house has a pool and I know how picky he can be about swimming or the whole pool thing so he and I just did our own thing today. Matthew went bowling and out to lunch with friends. (Now that boy is BUSY) he has something to do just about everyday (Or someone calling with something to do). So much for doing TONS of Math and Science this summer. He has only worked on it a few times. I ended up picking up Matthew, Shane and one of his friends and bringing them home before everyone came over here for lifegroup. I guess I will be getting better pictures later on. We are having a youthgroup party here soon so I have to concentrate on getting this place cleaned up and the new bedroom cleared out so they can use it to play board games. Its supposed to be a Video Game night but we want a NON video game area too.

I didn't have much time to take pictures today. We met up with one of the twins (One was sleeping) tonight and went out to eat so with normal errands and that we were busy. I finally remembered to give the guys their gift from our cruise. We got them a towel animal creation book. I don't know if you remember the pictures we took of the towel animals from our November Cruise. They always got a kick out of them every night so we got them the book to learn how to make them.
