HELLO! Well summer has officially arrived in the Lisenby home or at least I am back to myself 100 percent and its been non stop! As we prep for our annual 4th of July party as well as have some fun with the kiddos the days have simply gotten away from me!
We arrived this evening at my in laws summer home. Joe stayed back as summer is his busy time and there are still a few things to do before Saturday! So we drove six hours with my sister and brother-in-law to have a long over due visit! As we all know these things are VERY necessary just as I’ve mentioned in the past about going out with friends for adult time. Just getting out of dodge for a couple of days is always a good thing. Wish Joe could join but as a business owner I appreciate and respect why he couldn’t come.
Things around the house are coming together nicely despite a ton of rain! BOO! As the Koi pond and fountain were completed last time I checked in last week we were finally able to lay sod! Joe and I laid 2400 square feet and he and two others laid the remaining 1200 square feet! Honestly I had no interest in doing this at 8p.m. but I do love working together to create a place to enjoy with our family and friends. So I enjoyed helping!
Keeping things moving Joe put in our fire pit this past week as well! As he took on doing a design he had not done before I was excited to see the outcome! Being the wife of someone who has so many ideas you never really know what he will want to do next! I think he nailed this. He was inspired by the wood boats we see on the lake. The beauty of them is something a boaters or non boaters (as we are) can appreciate! Also known as Woodies…here is a few pics of start to finish!
The kids have also not slowed down; I actually feel like we’ve been on a carnival ride that just as you think is slowing down to stop the operator accidentally hits go and back at it you are! We are loving the ride so far! Busy means happy babies as well as exhausted! Which in my book is a double thumbs up! We went to a bi-plane fly in breakfast that K loved! We started rookie sports which both really love! We went to an amazing free zoo and we also have simply enjoyed turtle, Koi, Frog and Goldfish watching in the back yard!
The kids have still been enjoying every minute of Aunt Connie time that they have had…playing salon and coloring have been just a few of the highlights! We also took them out on their bikes for the first time! I was impressed they made it two miles. I’m pretty sure S’s legs were jello but they had fun riding where big kids do! We also squeezed in pictures as Connie is an amazing photographer based in Georgia. So when she visits I love having her get summer pics of S and K!
I’m sure I will have plenty to share after these next few days! Until then enjoy the 4th of July holiday! Keep it safe and take many pictures creating memories of the fun you had!
