Sunny Summer

Why is it summer goes by in an instant?  Yes we are in upstate NY so the season is short.  You really need to make the most of it while it's here.  And we have been doing exactly that!

Between horse shows and riding, all star baseball, vacation with our extended family, camp and VBS, it's been a busy but oh so fun!     My big girl is turning 4 this week, so we are gearing up for her birthday party as well.  Hard to believe that little infant I brought home (what feels like yesterday) is turning FOUR!   I wish time could stand still.

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to!  And look for a sneak peek at the end! ;)

My sweet boys getting merit badges from Boy scouts!  Hard to believe my little cub scouts are boy scouts now!

Found this chair at consignment last year and got the cushion at BJ's.  The pillow I found at TJ Maxx.

Picked up this patio sofa on Craigslist for $45!  Got the cushions on Overstock and pillow again at TJ Maxx.  Love the little sitting area on the wrap part of the porch!

My loves on the last day of camping

All smiles at his All-star game!

Loving her wheelbarrow that daddy found at a yard sale!  We spend lots of time in the garden together!

 And now for what I have been working on!  The white just wasn't working in the "MUD" room!  Sooooooo a lil emporer's silk chalk paint transformed it!  Just put the lacquer on last night!  Will post the whole room soon! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

You are busy busy. I am glad that someone has tried the lacquer. I want to paint some of the kitchen cabinets and figured the lacquer is the way to seal them. Was it easy to use? Can't wait for the reveal.

I can't believe your little baby will be FOUR? Where does time go???? I can't believe how green everything is there too....everything is a not so nice shade of brown around here....very sad! I LOVE that red...amazing! Can't wait to see the rest of the mudroom :o)

So glad you're back. I feel the same way. The kids grow up too fast. Can't wait to see the reveal.
