*whew* What a busy weekend; good but busy. As nice as it is to have house guests, it's nice to have one day to ourselves to catch up on all the housework and get ready for another busy week that's to come. Geo is off today but then works all the way through until the 22nd :( He has two overnight shifts coming up which will be fun for all of us (or not)
We had a blast with our friends the Bohannon's (see the pics I posted yesterday) The boys (our godsons) have grown so much since we last saw them. I can't believe they've grown SO much in the last three years. It's funny how your own children grow so much and it's no big deal but when other people's children grow that much it seems shocking. They're both such sweeties and I loved hearing their little southern accents (they now live in Georgia, my little Georgia peaches :P)
Yesterday we had a *bit* of excitement. An awful storm kicked up and created a bit of a mess (ha ha, a BIT would be an understatement I think) The wind kicked up so strongly that our glass topped patio table flipped and shattered into about a million pieces and a large tree branch broke off. We were all so thankful that the wind was blowing out of the west, otherwise we would have had a MUCH bigger mess on our hands since our cars were parked under the tree. What a mess. Luckily Geo and Brian were able to get it all cleaned up fairly quickly thanks to a tow chain and a saw. We were able to end the night with a nice barbecue and relaxing.
Now we're getting ready for the next few weeks-thankfully I'm not working anymore so I'll have plenty of time to devote to getting the house ready for our house guests coming in July to stay for a while. The kiddos are very excited that Uncle JD, Aunt Katie, and Aubrey are going to be staying with us for a while and Geo and I are glad they'll be in Illinois for "good" in just a few weeks. It'll be nice to have some more family down here :) Hope you all have a wonderful week!!
