It feels great to finally be in Summer and also to be moved, we finally feel like we can relax. School ended one day and the next we closed escrow! One week later we moved! Joy and Sean really helped us out a lot! It pays to be teachers and have teacher friends, we had nothing to do but move. Sean helped us paint a few days before moving day and Joy contact papered our whole kitchen. They basically packed and unpacked the whole kitchen too. That's a big job! Jackson and Melissa know, they did it last time. Two days before we moved, we got to go to So You Think You Can Dance! It was so much fun! It was 8 hours of standing and waiting but it was totally worth it. The dancers are amazing on TV but in person when they are right there in front of you... WOW! Josh and Sean actually had several really good head shots on TV. You could see all of us from behind but they cut me out when they showed their faces, errr! Anyway, Twitchington is my favorite but Mark and Chelsie and Katee and Joshua are amazing! If you watch this week look for us on Wednesday because Josh and I are going again tomorrow!! What can I say, we love it! Well, we are pretty much all unpacked now except for a few boxes here and there and we still have some organizing to do of course. If you can call us and come by we love visitors!!!! Happy Summer and we hope to see you soon!
We spent the 4th of July with Amy and Josh and their family. We had a great day relaxing at the pool and then a yummy BBQ dinner. I even ate a hot dog! I was feeling festive! Later we went down to a parking lot where we got to see some pretty great fireworks! It was a lot of fun!
Amy's parents have two birds that they have had for years! Longer than their kids I think. Rodger is the green one, he talks and Birtha is the white one. They both totally posed for the pictures!
Chloe and Buddy hadn't seen each other in so long, they miss each other! They were so fun to watch jumping on each other like old times! Here they are staring at each other in their crates while we went shopping and the boys worked in the back yard.
It's hard to get them both looking at the same time!
Honestly, the bathrooms are the rooms I am most proud of! We painted them a Tiffany blue and are accenting them with Chocolate brown! I love them! Painting a bathroom, although a small space, is a really hard thing to do! There is so much to get around, the mirrors, the cabinets, the toilet, it's hard! We were so lucky to have the help of our good friend Sean, he showed us what to do and helped us with all the painting for two days straight! One of the painting days was Josh's 26th birthday by the way! There is a whole story that goes along with why there are no pictures from that night but that's another post!
Here is our bedroom, we painted it a celery green. Sean risked his life painting up to the vaulted ceiling. What a good friend!
It's funny how different things make you feel grown up... for us a sectional couch, that feels grown up!
He really likes the new couch!
Stephanie was in town last weekend for a wedding so we got together for her favorite dinner, La Tolteca of course! It was so great to see her, a bummer that Judd couldn't come but we'll take what we can get! He is busy studying for the Bar exam, we think of him every time we watch Law and Order and see Sam Waterston. He reminds us of Judd so much!
