I'm a flower lover, and they had plenty of beautiful arrangements!
We stayed in the room with a jacuzzi- for some reason my picts of it didn't come out- they are all fuzzy :(, but as you can see the room was beautiful! And girls-- the bath products are spa quality and the bed sheets- fine quality super-HIGH thread-count luxury!!! You can even purchase the skin-care products from the hostess. Hey Carrie- now that's my idea of roughing it - ha ha!!!
We had a very relaxing Anniversary- thanks Mom and Tony, and our hosts Gene and Jayne!! It was awesome!!
When we returned to Grandma and Tony's, the neighbor girls made the children's day~ They brought over their miniature horses and Elizabeth and Jacob went crazy! NO Tony, There's NO room at the INN!!!
Can't have all work and no play- had to squeeze in some time for more toys.
And for our return home-- drum roll please...... this was awaiting us- it's a mess, but it's progress!!!! (I'm the kind that has to have VISUAL progress :) How's this for a start, Lauri????
And my garden is growing!!!! It's NEVER looked like this- I'm quite proud! The bobcat driver - (I won't mention any names Dave) did have a slight mishap and caved the corner in, but we'll accept that. ;) So many things happening!! Have to get back to work~ Have a great week!

And ice-cream... Jacob DOVE, literally, into Tony's bowl-repeatedly. Now that was a funny sight!
Even Jacob and Elizabeth got right into the action- what big helpers!!!
Even Jacob has to have his own toy~ what's scary is he can drive it already~
There's just something about sleeping children at night- so peaceful!
Mark and I are off to celebrate our Anniversary- 12 years- yikes, time flies!! Grandma and Tony are sending us to a Bed and Breakfast -we're going to leave VERY quickly in case they change their minds. ;)
And... I have word from home that the driveway is pretty much nonexistent, thanks to some heavy machinery- CAN'T wait to see that when we arrive home- I'll definitely be posting those picts!!!

If I could just get him this excited over math or piano practice!
Only one day later and there you have it- wall gone! See guys, that wasn't too bad-- now let's move all of that effort to the back of the house - dig, dig, dig! Step by step ......... I'd make a great foreman- I think I'll just go ahead and appoint myself that title :)

I'm not sure if you could really call Elizabeth's time swimming lessons- she spent the morning being pulled around by a young man, and then carried around by the girl instructors. Talk about wrapping people around your finger- she's the best with that one!!

Oh man ~I could take a bath in that! Elizabeth could disappear in there- and LOVE every minute :)
It doesn't get any fresher than this! Before:
And After: This look sums it up- 5 kids in a chocolate factory full of goodies in their belly- makes for one WOUND UP afternoon! Second big highlight for the guys (other than rides in the Mustang - including taking an hour to get one pie crust for mom at a store that is 5 minutes away-a little detour eh Mark?):
Catching Fireflies! Took quite a while, but finally they got one~
Boys and their treaures! Thanks for the great week guys! Come back SOON!!

The inside was just pretty much dried out eggs.
Had to make a makeshift cross from pretzel sticks for his grave.
Mark then burried the pretzel cross, so had to make anther one from sticks.
