Here with a bang!

Summer, that is!
After all of that wind and cool weather
we've had

it is now officially summer-

It is supposed to be 103 today.

New plan for painting!
I think it is called 6 am-
not my favorite time of day!


We've been to a family reunion
with my husband's family
There were 4 brothers together-
all as ornery as my husband


Gotta love 'em


Boys will be boys!

They just wanted to do this!


I hear there was a bounty for throwing me in

but

even my son said

I don't think there is enough money to get me to do that...

I don't mind some good fun teasing,

in fact, I miss it from my boys,

but this would not have been fun-I HATE the water!




Earlier in the week,
we hosted a bridal shower
for a sweet young lady from our homeschool group
that we have watched grow up...















yummy food:

lemon cake
chocolate cheesecake
biscotti



chocolate cups filled with chocolate creme


fresh local strawberries







It has been a busy but good week.
talk to y'all soon,

Dear Rene',

I enjoyed your lovely summer vintage images and the beautiful bridal shower!!! Everything looked so wonderful! I love the two birds atop the Bible and the Home Sweet Home sign!

You make everything look so pretty!

Have a lovely day and stay cool!
Blessings,
Paula

Hi Rene,
The bridal shower was beautiful, and the cake!!! YUMMY!!! What an honor to see such a lovely young woman grow up and then marry and start her own life, my homeschoolers are doing the same thing...time swings by so fast, doesn't it?? So sad when you think about it too long!

How is the barn coming along?? Is it all done now??? I am still painting ours, been so busy with that and the yard! Been hot here too, but not as hot as 103!!!! Heavens, that must be awful!

Take care,
XO,
DL

Love your photos and the shower pictures were great! Love the chocolate pictures too, yummy.
When you have time, I am having a post wedding giveaway, some white sparkly items and trims.
You have some beautiful ideas for showers, I really liked them!
