Memorial Day Weekend

I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday weekend and got to do something fun. We started off our weekend looking at furniture... specifically dining room sets. We are not ready to buy just yet, but want to be "ready" when we are. Here's our top contender at the moment.DSC03072 It looks a little small in the picture but its one of the new square tables and seats 8 quite comfortably. I, of course, also fell in love with the matching sideboard/hutch DSC03073 Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
Richard & Nathaniel found some furniture they like too...DSC03074 And Nathaniel had fun playing with the "props" on the table DSC03070
Saturday we set out to check out Sebastian Inlet but by the time we got there it was pouring. We did find a little bar/restaurant to get ripped off err... eat in.DSC03081 Even had this lone one man band playing. DSC03078C He actually wasn't bad. Played some Buffett and some reggae. The bar had lots of locals DSC03077 My only issue was that our lunch bill came to $30! This wouldn't be that much of a problem except that I had a $3.00 hot dog and Richard had a $6.00 hamburger (both were tasty). Julianne had fries and Nathaniel had nachos. I think were we got taken was in our soda's. No free refills here and Julianne spilled her first one all over Richard (who was fortunately wearing swim trunks). Here she is in a much better (goofier) mood once she ate. DSC03076
After that we started back North towards home and the weather just got nicer and nicer. We finally stopped in Cocoa Beach and stayed for a few hours at the beach until I noticed a big black cloud headed our way. By the time we got the kids out of the water, packed up our stuff and headed to the car, the heavens opened up. Boy you should have seen people scattering when that first clap of thunder rolled in. Next we headed over to the new house to check out the perimeter and pick up some stuff that had blown out of someone else's recycle bin. I ended up knocking Nathaniel into the pool and without much hesitation Julianne jumped in. We probably shouldn't have but we let them swim for a few minutes and then headed home. Nate has this new thing of having his head out of the window to feel the wind blow through his ever growing hair. I personally think it's his dog genes but isn't he so beautiful? DSC03086
The rest of this weekend has been spent dropping off children here and picking them up there. Nathaniel spent the night Sunday with his friend Bryan and is leaving for the beach with his friend Jacob in just a little bit. Julianne spent the night last night with her friend Sarah and is currently at a birthday party for her friend Devon. Richard and I, meanwhile have thoroughly enjoyed the moments of peace and quiet.

I love buying new furniture - we recently bought an Oak dining room suite and I just love the smell of it everytime I walk into the room.

Looks as though you have been having a great time - you amaze me how much you squeeze into your days and still have time to create beautiful craft items !!
