Welcome Summer!!

It has been nice and sunshiny for several days this past week. We have also been on a small home improvements kick...really to the outside of the house. That is where Joel and I spend 80% of our time before dark.

Maybe in a few weeks I'll start working on the interior.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the current improvements!

Our new grill (Thank you Ms. Fay and Lowes) and our patio. Barry did most of the digging. I hauled away the dirt and I layed most of the brick. The 4 spots where there are big gaps are going to be filled in with quickcrete and our handprints. There is also a brick from Ms. Fay's house in Chalmette in there..we have 3 more, they are probably going in too. I really think this looks awesome...especially compared to what it looked like before. Thanks Mom for more of the green chairs! Also check out how high my glads are!! Next year we should have beautiful gladiolas all summer long. I planted them too late this year, but they are so pretty just as greenery.

Barry grilling, before we put the new patio down...I am the grill master so far...Barry made one scary chicken was yuck. He has yet to redeem himself. He is pictured modeling with the bacon wrapped green beans. One of my favorite items.
