It's June Already!

So much for slower days in June.
My sweet husband has been to Turkey and back. 

I did get a lot done around the house while he was away,
but thought I was capable of getting much more done. 

Sometimes I forget I am not 25 any longer. 

Hydrangeas are in full bloom!
Just wish they lasted all summer. 

I will be helping my boy move from Charlotte this weekend. 

My little ones are coming to visit this next week.
That is sure to mean a busy week!

Temperatures are well into the 90's here, and the humidity is something else!
It seems like not too long ago we were complaining about how cold it was,
but we definitely have the heat   now!

Rehearsal dinner is planned!

My boy has a new job, and this is what they are working on.
He is working for Holder Bros Timber Frames.
want to see more of their unique projects go here.

We have a wedding to attend in Maryland, wedding showers,
and who knows what else will be happening. 
It is looking like a busy summer!
Would love to hear what you are up to this summer.

Things have been busy around here for the past couple of weekends, 
 but, a good kind of busy. 

The last weekend in April, we headed to Augusta to help with this.
My son's fiance organizes this event for children with varying disabilities.
Their own race where they bike, run and swim.
What a joy it was to sit and watch as their smiling faces crossed the finish line. 

Then this past weekend, it was on to Florida, so this little guy could have a camp out.
It was a little rainy, so fortunately they have a huge covered porch, and we set the tent up, 
were able to roast hot dogs, and have a fun time camping out .

Here he is totally excited about the tent!
You can also get a good look at his DIY haircut.

This little girl had so much fun,
 she bounced herself to sleep quite quickly on more than one occasion.

and here's Papa with his two happy campers!

Tomorrow it is on to look for a place to hold the rehearsal dinner for out
upcoming September wedding.

April Showers and Random Things

Wow, I can hardly believe that it has been a month since I last posted!
I guess I can catch you up on a few things, and hopefully begin regular posting again.
It has been steadily raining here for the past day, and this morning as well.
I am amazed at how beautiful and green everything turned overnight! 

First time this Lady Banks Rose has bloomed like this.

Our Cherokee Rose that is always in full bloom.
For us who live in South Georgia, we have had a long cold winter, and we are welcoming Spring!
Last weekend was a very productive one for us, and we spent all of Saturday on outside projects.
The Adirondack chairs have been cleaned, stained and resealed.
Front porch swing got the same, both porches pressure washed. 
All of my Christmas cactus' have been re-potted and some geraniums started. 

Came across this picture of my two favorite guys that I thought I would share.
My sweet husband will be headed to Turkey in a few weeks. I would appreciate your prayers.

and in other news, these two will be getting married in September, and we are very excited for them. 
Next post I will show you my little bird nest project. 
Praying you all have a blessed Easter as we celebrate our risen Lord!
