Fun in the sun and a little home improvement

So this past week the kids and I stayed pretty busy running errands and going to appointments and the library. A.R. had her one year check-up on her tubes in her ears and everything looked good. One of the tubes is about to come out and the other one is still in there, so we'll go back in 6 months to see if they've come out and if everything is healed up good. By the end of the week the kids were seriously upset because we had not had been to the pool, so I pulled out our dinky little excuse of a baby pool and hoped that would pacify them. They actually played in it both Friday and Saturday was a lot more fun once I put the slide in it! And don't you love the shades...

So after 4 years we have finally gotten around to doing some painting! Perhaps we were inspired by Drew's recent paint fiasco? In any case, Saturday morning we decided that we wanted to go get some paint, so we did. We bought a new quilt for our room and some paint for our walls, and then we bought this bright blue paint for the kids ducky bathroom. This was only our second experience with paint, so we're still learning, but I must say I'm pretty proud of our work. Just don't look at the ceiling...Someone (not me!) had a little trouble controlling when to stop his roller!!! Such an improvement over the blah "eggshell white" that was in there before. Guess all those years of watching "Trading Spaces" finally paid off...
