Home sweet home :) The east side of the house. I love the porch!

The west edge of the property- the garage and apricot tree.

A very important addition to the landscape!

I am sorry this is so blurry, but just had to include it. Paul really loves copying Mom and Dad. What we say, what we do.... what a challenge to watch our behaviour! Anyway, when Dad comes home tired... Paul thought he better try to get a nap too!
The "real deal" :)

We have had some nasty weather, but thankfully nothing damaging.

One of the biggest pieces we found

We just bought a pool for the summer. Tonight we had the boys try it out with the slide. It was a great hit!


Even Marcus loved it! (And no- I am not "pulling" him through the water, even though my face looks like I am!)
I will share more pictures soon. I will try to do a "house tour" one of these days!

Looks like a nice house! One of the things that is on my "dream house" is a white front porch.
Haven't seen you in a while! Sounds like you're doin' great.

Aww, I love your house! I think I would feel very safe with the Sheriff car parked out front. :) That was some major hail there. So cute to see the boys in the pool - remember when WE used to do that in the summer??

Love you guys!

I LOVE the pictures! Your house is so cute - I just love porches! Of course, the best pictures of all are the ones of the adorable little boys!
