New picture

So my sister on law did our family pictures in her new studio. They turned out pretty good, each showing my children's personality, i didn't like the picture of me but what can you do, yellow washes me out. We have been camping out at my aunt Trisha's house for the last week. helping her move from her old store to her new store. What a chore that has been, mounds of metal shelving to be moved to her garage, merchandise to be moved, offices to be cleaned out, etc.... A service project and a half to quote my husband!!!!! Now I am painting her new logo and design on the sign in front of her new store (pictures to come of course) and helping to organize the new store for her grand opening!!! Next week my kids are going to do swimming lessons here while we finish working in the store.

We played at the water park here in Vulcan and the kids had tons of fun!!! I left my camera cord at home so the pictures will have to wait until next week. I know what you mean Lisa about going on vacay and sitting in someones house, yucky!!!! I was sick at the first part of the week but am feeling better now. We have been eating lunch at her new cafe called "Trisha's Tasty Treats", catchy name huh? She serves cheesecake and pastry, salad bar, soup and sandwiches, the food is great and she is in her element!!!!

I love summer and thank goodness for the nice weather, sun and heat, no rain!!!! We had my dad's famous couch potato party last weekend at their house, burning school work and having smores and staying up with Grandpa until 2a.m. to watch movies and gorge on junk food!!! What could be better, thanks Dad!!!

Kendon's brother got married also on June 26th, for the third time to a women with three kids. Crossing our fingers that it all goes good, eternity good we hope. I love her kids and she seems really nice, I look forward to getting to know her better, her name is Jamie. W ehad fun at the Clark's for Kendon's dad's birthday the next day. It was fun, playing in the backyard, riding quads, eating and being with family.

I have to go, kids yelling, babies crying, mom screaming, you know typical day in the Clark's House He He He!!!!!!

I love the picture! I just cannot believe how big Kimberley looks in it though. Where on earth did all that time go?

Good luck to Trish. That sounds so fun! Kaye would love to have a little deli idea. Hope it all goes great!
