Decks, canals, and little mothers

Hang onto your hats...for below is a slew of fabulous photos. I know you've been on the edge of your seats, waiting for the newly stained deck pix...well, wait no they be.

hummingbird feeder (thanks B), windchimes, and impatiens...bring me joy!

Look at that cinnamon sheen...takes my breath away. I need to get out more apparently.

Molly, admiring the Melanie/Laurie handiwork for sure! would someone cut her bangs?

I'm not sure if you can tell that there is a Cape Cod gray stain on this deck...but it's there...this project will take a few seasons to complete...funds run short, time runs short...(I've got all the time in the world. it's that husband of mine who is strapped for it). This pool is a blessing! can't believe the joy that something like this can bring to some kids, harried parents, hot parents, stressed parents...o. sorry.

Check out my knock-off baby Crocs...moving on up to size 3 finally!

on our trip up to the canal last night, Mel so graciously resumed her mothering roles and fed her baby sister a ba ba. Mel, You ROCK! Check out the mother in the making! Molly loves you!

The canal joggers...D. and Jeff were the only ones to really finish any kind of run. Will and E. attempted, Mel, Levi, Molly and I walked and my blood sugar dropped, so I got all whoozy and had to scarf down Molly's cheerios!

Last night, David, the boys and Jeff wanted to run the canal in downtown Indy. It was a picture perfect evening...I don't think the weather could've been any more perfect! Seems that the lovely weather brought out all the weirdos as well! (uh yeah, us) These are just a few of the pics that actually turned out on our venture.

The deck staining is going, does it hurt my old body. I know I keep harping on that but it just strikes me how I'm not in my twenties anymore and I suddenly feel so middle-aged.

As for today...looks like it may rain so it's a good thing that I got a bit more stained on the pool deck! But now I'm off to get my eyebrows waxed...yeeouch....before I turn totally into Teen er I mean...Middle aged Wolf! I'll be back later...

O yeah, be on the lookout for my cousin Tory's new blog...when I get home, I am going to add her to my list of amigos! Maybe now this will spur my sister onto starting her own blog as well. My goal? that everyone I know has a blog! ok, not really. Welcome to Blogland Tory dear! So glad to have you!!

I'm jealous that you guys waltz off to the canal in the middle of the night as a family! What fun! You guys are so adventuresome!

LOVE the new deck stains. Just waiting for that special invite to come see them (and the pool) in person!
