Tom & Angie arrived from Missouri on Friday afternoon and we all hung out in the heat till early evening. It just makes me smile-when they visit. I really enjoy them and they are great together!
Yesterday, we spent the whole 90 degree day at the ball field. Austin, Chase & then Luke--back to back to back games. We even made the dog join us and for the most part he did great. Tom & Angie and Sarah & Mike were there too---here are some pics of us trying to stay cool during the baseball marathon!
Here is Cooper hiding in the only shade he could find:
Luke took a hint from Cooper and laid under the chair too!
We found a creek at the ball park and kept heading over there to cool off
David - he loves the heat - Check out the new haircut I gave him ---finally decided growing his hair long was too much work!
Luke played photographer too!
This is the 4 of us trying to sit in the only shade at the park!

Today was another productive day --- Deep cleaned both the bathroom and the kitchen, mowed the lawn, went to Costco, hung sheetrock, did 4 loads of laundry, and fixed the refridgerator!
I took some pics of the yard and stuff because I have had some gals ask me about where we live. It is kind of confusing since we live so close to a big city and everything we need is so close to us ---but yet we have a creek in our yard. Really it is just a small creek that runs into a small lake. The park that goes with the lake starts right behind our house and follows the creek to a small golf course that sits on the lake.
So, my yard looks like:
If I stand in the farthest north corner of the lot right next to the creek - this is what I see - from here the creek is on my left:
Walking south a bit and looking a little more toward the creek:
The north side of our house looking toward the front (note the sand bags still in the yard from the minor flood last fall)- the house sits on a pie shaped lot at the end of a cult-de-sac---the back is very long and the front is much shorter:
The South side of our house looking toward the front:
and the play area also on the south side of the house (more sand bags!)
Currently there is construction stuff everywhere---bricks, wood, windows etc... everywhere. I have hopes for the end of the summer --it will all magically disappear!
