Lots of company and 2 bday's!

Lets just start off by saying what a fun few weeks this has been, I got home from Girls camp about midnight on the 15th and then had one day to get my house ship shaped and ready for company! On Saturday we went to the South Hill aquatics park for Hunters 3rd bday and had a blast! We were so happy that some of our new friends here joined us! Around lunch time Ryan had to leave and go find my brother in law Kameron and his family as they surprised us by coming into town! About one hour later he came back to finish the afternoon of swimming with us! By the time we got home we had my Father-in-law, Mother-in-law, both sister-in-laws, one brother-in-law and 6 extra kiddos all waiting to greet us! We had a great time with everyone here and my most favorite part would have to be the dinner cruise my mother in law surprised me with for an early bday present. She is so wonderful and Cor de alene is just so beautiful!

Later in the week we had a good old friend from Franklin, Idaho come to visit us and we only had time to meet up with him for dinner but that sure was fun! Thanks for a fun visit Kenny!

By Friday am when Ryan went to work everyone headed out the door as well! Thanks guys for such a fun and busy week!

Then on Sunday the 25th I had my 28th bday but we kept it pretty low key since we have been doing so much fun stuff this past week! However, I do have to say that Ryan made me a yummy cake, my good friend Mary surprised me with a home made angel food cake and the Young Womens presidency and I shared yummy cupcakes made by one of their husbands. I ate all of it and loved it!!!!!!!

Sunday evening we hung out with Dr. Pearson and her husband for a few and Hunter and her had a good old time in her back yard water feature!

Then Monday afternoon around lunchtime my dad showed up for a few days of fun with us! GOING GOING GOING!!!! Is what I have been doing for 3 solid weeks and now I feel like just vegging! I love family and we had great memories with all of them! So here I sit in my bathing suit because we just got back from a water park and I wanted to catch up!

Well my title says it all, "lots of company in town and 2 birthdays!"

Hunter and I had such a busy day today since I have been back from Girls Camp (pic's to come later). However, it was not to busy to pick Cherries we are excited to eat them.

Girls Camp

What a great week! Sister Garrin was the BEST to work with and all went really well! Sure am glad to be home though!

Could not ask for a better group of girls to be in charge of! This was my 11th year going to Girls camp either as a leader or a girl! Fun Fun!

Montana River Rafting

Let me just say, FUN FUN FUN!!!! Us girls had so much fun the whole day! No one got hurt everyone seemed to have fun and we all got wet! It was one good day! Can't wait until next year when we do it again! This was my first time ever river rafting and I think it was wonderful! Montana was beautiful, the weather was awesome and the water was even better!

Dumpster luck!

Not that I am looking through dumpsters however, I found this just sitting next to a dumpster and grabbed it and threw it in my truck! After sanding it down and reshaped the legs whala!!!!!! Looks as good as new! This one could be a keeper! ;)

Darn me again for not getting before pictures oh well at least I knew what it looked like before!

Old Desk

This was yet another really cute free find that I totally had to give some TLC to and it looks so cute now! Now onto selling this cute little desk! I try not to ever fall in love with a piece I do but this one is pretty fun!

Here are the comparison picture and hopefully you can tell the bottom one is the refinished one!

His 1st movie

Friday night Ryan and I decided to take Hunter to the theatre to go see his first movie! We started out with a little Red Robin followed by this wonderful film. Hunter just loved it and although he was tired he managed to stay awake until the very end. This was a fun evening as a family!

I love before and then after

I don't even really need to explain these pictures because all of you know what I love to do with my spare time! This was a great find and although it was a bigger project than my husband and I have ever taken on it was so worth it! We had to take apart the entire dresser and rebuild it just to make is sturdy again! But wow, now the thought of selling it makes me sad but I rarely fall in love with a piece of furnature so on to selling it I go! :( This was so much fun to do with Ryan and we have 4 more projects already going on in our garage at this present moment.

Pic's don't do this justice, it was is so much need of a ton of TLC! And we gave it a complete makeover!
