Joys of Summer!!!

These are some of lifes little pleasures.....

After a wonderful weekend with friends, its nice to come home and relax....but to relax AND be entertained with hot air balloons soaring over our house, who would have guessed! My boys were so excited to sit on the porch and take it all in! I wish I had thought to grab my camera sooner but, I was able to capture a couple of pics! Ahhh, the joys of summer!

Good-bye Preschool....Hello Kindergarten!

Well, today has been a mixture of emotions for me as my precious boy Gavin, graduated preschool today! As I sat in the church pew, my eyes welled up with tears when I started to reminisce of all the milestones he has reached in such a short amount of time! I cant believe we have a son getting ready for kindergarten in the fall! Where has the time gone! We are so proud of the accomplishments he has achieved and we look forward to many more! Good job Gav, Mommy and Daddy couldn't be more happier and proud of our little (big) boy! (wink, wink)

Artist in the making...

I must say, we are a very talented family...from music to art we have been very blessed to have been given the gift of creativity! I HAVE to brag a bit on my younger brother (Cameron) he is not only one of the best musicians (he plays drums) in my opinion. You have to see it to believe it, he truly is amazing! He also has the ability to draw (wonder where he gets it...hmmm...there really is no comparison, LOL) he is WAY more talented than I could ever dream! He gave me one of the best gifts this past Christmas and I have the pleasure of sharing it with you! You be the judge....

Original Photo


I just recently had it framed! I couldnt wait to get it on the wall! I will cherish it forever! Thanks Cam!

The Three Ps!!!!!!!!!!

Busy, busy is my new middle name as we are still unpacking and PUTTING away! I really am trying to declutter and get rid of all things we just dont need or use. Whats the rule, if you havent used it or worn it in a year....toss it! Thats my new motto, it seems to be working pretty well!

In the mist of all the chaos, I am in the beginning stages of PLANNING for our 1st House-warming party set for some time in July! I figure that should give us enough time to get our house in order instead of it looking like you stepped in a UPS warehouse! LOL!! While digging deep, looking for my cookbooks and recipes, I gave finally gave up and searched the web for some great party ideas! I think we are going to do a "Tapas" Theme party with Cuban flair! Mojitos here we come! I will sift through some recipes or if anyone has any recipes to share feel free to leave me a comment! I love trying new things!

I cant wait to P-A-R-T-Y!!!!!!!!!

More Pics....

Here is Gavin and Grants bathroom, I couldnt decide which theme to go with and I wanted something that would grow with, beach theme seemed perfect with that PBK green! I guess you could say the Blockers have gone GREEN so to speak! LOL!!!

Here is the little nook in our entryway, as you know I have been on the hunt for the perfect bench, instead I decided to go practical and went with the storage bench! A nice place to hide all of those shoes!

Day at the Downs!

These are just some shots I took on our Day at the Downs with the family!! My goal was to capture some great images of the famous Churchill Downs along with some upclose images of the beautiful horses! I hope to frame a lot of these pictures and make a collage in our basement when its completed! I know Richard will just LOVE this idea!
