The Joys of Summer

We've had a wonderful summer - a week with grandkids here. Levi's 6th birthday celebration. No pics, but I spent a week at Hugh & Shanna's in North Carolina with Katie & Leo while Simon underwent a successful operation to repair a hole in his heart.

Harry, Hal and Tyler did a major project of pulling up our brick sidewalk out back that was overgrown with weeds and widened and reset the walkway with a weed barrier and sand underneath. It's great - adds so much to the back garden path.

We had to do another chocolate fountain while all the kids were here and Pat & Amber brought a slip 'n slide that the kids loved.

The kids worked hard weeding & thinning the garden and we put in a good sized pumpkin patch by laying down newspapers and then covering it with good topsoil. They are up and growing already. Good work kids!

Chocolate Fountain

We tried out our chocolate fountain yesterday.  I bought it on Christmas clearance 2 years ago and never had the courage or ambition to try it until yesterday.  Yes, it was fun and yes, it was messy but worth it.  Our friend Brittney joined in the fun.  Sam's comment said it all, "I happy."
