Summer Shots....

 We met some friends up at the Botanic Gardens one day this week with temps only in the high 80's and low was wonderful!!!

 Jesse not as musical as he had hoped!

 Claire and friend Emma on the "Spiderweb"

 My lantanas and insects love this heat!

 My poor parched roses.....

"Big Girl" Room......

 Claire has been asking for a different room for some time....she has been crazy over blue for years, but have managed to hold her off until now. She wanted blue walls as well, but was able to talk her into the neutral walls and lots of blue everywhere else...
 I'm proud of Claire because a large portion of this room was her idea....we just did all the work of course!!  We used a little extra trim paint and let her do her handprint at entry to her room.
 There are lanterns everywhere....that girl and her lanterns....must be in her blood!
 We took the mirror out of an old framed mirror, painted the frame white, and had some galvanized metal cut and made her a magnetic board....she glued blue tacky flowers to the magnets....her idea of course!

 Grandpa refinished Great-Grandpa Crawford's nightstand and made it Claire-ready!
 A simple vinyl decal ordered from Etsy
 The little blue birdhouse thing is now her new "nightlight" and projects the pretty shapes all over her ceiling at night.
 Loving it all!
 Oh the lanterns.......

Swinging' Sweltering Summer....

 Well, Jesse competed in the Regional Sneds 2 Day Tournament at Galloway in 99 degree heat.  But, he never gave up and put on his best face while doing it! 

 Claire finding a little reprieve!!!

 After round 1
 Day 2 Annie tagged along and was a good sport!

 Claire decided she wants this house when she grows up and wanted me to take a pic so she could find it when she gets older....let's see how that pans out.....
 A very hot Jesse taking some shelter in the shade!

 Closing up day 2 and not super happy about his final score....but happy he made a few pars to help!
