I have been taking a ton of pictures lately and wanted to share some of my favorites. The kids are having a really great time with their daddy. It stinks that he will be heading back to Africa in just 8 days. We will miss him like crazy!! Andy helped me finish the painting!!!! Amen :) I also had him help me fix up the yard a little by moving around some plants. We have tried to really just stick to family time and a whole lot of fun. We took the kids to do so many fun things around town and made some fun memories. I will be able to update the blog with more pictures after he heads out. I will want something to do to keep busy...

We have been having a wonderful time together! I decided with all the pictures I plan to post I better get started on posting a few. The kids were in heaven picking up their daddy from the airport. I love seeing them in his arms it is just so wonderful!!! Ethaniel was a little like who's this guy at 1st...but by the time we made it out to the parking lot they were doing some major bonding. After the airport we had to have lunch at our favorite family restaurant Olive Garden.

I have almost finished painting the areas of the house that I wanted to paint. I still have nothing decorated because my stuff is still not here from Africa. I plan to decorate with some of my home decor but not much as we are going to put the house on the market in Oct. I did however decorate this wall with these cute little canvas from Hobby Lobby. I think it turned out cute and was a good idea for the over sized wall. For some reason they look crooked in the picture but not when you are in front of them or I straightened them after the picture was taken...lol. I will post more pictures of the house after I get all the painting finished.

We had a very nice 4th even though we missed our daddy this was 2 years in a row he missed the 4th! However we were able to have a nice time with friends. I belong to a local moms group in the area which had a party for the members and their families. The kids had a blast swimming and playing on the water slide. Me and Ethaniel did not go swimming but did enjoy just being outside and socializing. Their back yard was the coolest yard I have ever seen. It was so pretty and green with a little pond and beautiful trees and went on forever(the cool thing was they still lived in a sub division). I would love to have a yard just like it some day...A Girl can Dream!! Ethaniel was so very cute and brave about the fireworks they set off. They were as good as the ones last year that the City of Yuma puts on...lol. I took a few pictures of the kids before we headed out the door and then the rest are from the party. Watching the fireworks reminded me again of how great it is to be an American.
