July '09

- Independence Day with the AZ in-laws. -

This was so much fun! We swam and swam, celebrated Grandpa Bagel's birthday, went to see Wicked, BBQ'd, and talked and laughed and snorted (a Bagel family trait).

Wicked prep.

I must confess. I got busted for this because instead of stopping the kids from breaking Grandma Bagel's bed, I whipped out my camera. Couldn't help myself! It was too precious to pass up. Sorry Grandma!

You are a way fun family, but I never had any doubts. I haven't busted out paints since we moved... we used to paint at least once a month. Way over due. Was one of the window drawings your dream house? I was trying to read the particulars.

Congrats to you for being caught up! I need to down load my camera and see what jewels await,just waiting to be blogged about.

Wait, you did too bust out paints. You painted those cute hand animals for your kids! Ooooooh, you mean you haven't let THEM play with paints. I see . . . . Well, we moms gotta play sometimes, too! Just kidding. I don't blame you for not getting them out. Thinking of the clean up alone sometimes deters me from caving into the creative pressure from my kids.

Yes, one of the drawings is my dream home. Here are the particulars:

This area
This ward
Ocean views
1 acre lot
2800 sqft home
5 bed
3 bath
3 car garage
Laundry inside
Completely upgraded
Fenced yard
AC

Like I said . . . DREAM house. With a strong emphasis on DREAM. :0)

Thanks, my friend. We did have a lot of fun!
