Today, my wonderful husband spent most of the day in the scorching heat creating this landscape masterpiece!!!
I wish I would have taken a before picture so you could have seen the "white trash" version of it before! Just picture, the right half rocks, the middle was a black tarp and the left side was mulch. Did you picture that hideous eye sore??? Oh, and add weeds in the mix to finish you off! Yeah, I apologize to my neighbors who have looked at it for the past year. The rock was leftover from when we had our pool, but when we sold it, we were stuck with lots of rock and nowhere to put it. So we decided to purchase more and made a rockbed instead of a flowerbed. With the leftover mulch, we combined it with our other flowerbed and added these pretty plants... So there you have it!!! My sweet husband spent the 4th slaving away in the heat instead of relaxing in a pool, having a cookout, and relaxing on his day off! I'm so blessed!!!
Last night we went to my parents to celebrate my nephew Leif's 2nd birthday and early 4th of July cookout and kiddie pool party! The most exciting thing was that the birthday boy was actually there for his own party!! He didn't make it to his 1st birthday party due to pink eye, but the rest of us partied without him!!
The kids partied all night with these awesome glasses!!
The birthday boy!!
All the kiddos, and if you look closely, even baby Jude got in on the fun!!
Autumn likes to be a "helper" and feed others when it comes to other people eating around her! Looks like Aunt Carrie became the victim this time around!!
Now that this holiday has come and gone, I realize that Autumn's 2nd birthday is around the corner (sniff, sniff). She is becoming more and more of a big girl and less baby. My how time flies!! I'm going to go and stick toothpicks in my eyelids now, so that I won't blink and she'll be off to school!
I took Autumn to get her first haircut yesterday!! She did amazing and was so excited sitting in the big chair! I think her favorite part was playing with the cape that was covering her!! Haley did a great job!!
Here she is singing a song! I'm telling you, she is ALWAYS singing!!
Her big curl that we cut.
New look...not much different...just no curly rat tail in the middle hanging down! haha
