A little bit of summer

Can I just I am loving this summer? I love Boo is old enough to enoy and appreciate special activities and I love LOVE having a husband around to share it with. He is mostly here, still has some school stuff and picking up the slack on church stuff but he can be around to help out and play with us.  BOo said the other day, "I wish dad could stay home and still get paid".  If only.
Here are some random photos:

she found my red lipstick. At least she kept it to the face:
 Smelly dairy farm, seriously  it was awful. Driving up little miss said "ew gross" before we even got out of the car. And every time I looked at GG it looked like he was trying hard not to throw up. I am thankful I was not in the 1st part of my pregnancy.

 Neighbor time:
I seriously love this summer. It has been good for my soul. I still have a hankering for summer in utah but I am 75 % sure that that is not realistic. I think really it is a hankering for reliving the memories of my childhood summers.

It has been a long while since I have done much of anything crafty. I've pinned things but have not gone forward with them. Pallet projects have been catching my eye a lot lately.  Unfortunately,  despite being everywhere they aren't readily available for the taking.  I finally got my hands on a few and made one of my projects.

 I decided after making mt flag that maybe I should try selling it and make enough money to cover my supplies and few more for another project.  I sold it and two others want me to make one for them. Can't decide if I should make more and possibly sacrifice other projects but I actually made something someone would buy.  I feel just a little entrepreneurish like. :)
just a little pat on my back. Hehe. :)

Let it rain

It has been a crazy rainy spring but today we didn't let it stop us. We helped a friend with a garage sale. Had a quick rainy trip to the zoo, thankfully it was a light rain. We even had s'mores and jumped on the trampoline while it poured above us. We feel so blessed for a covered porch.

so for tonight it can rain...maybe just a little more. We don't want to have to worry about rain in the basement.

I just want to complain for a second.  I had a visit at the doctor yesterday. I did the glucose test, I knew it was a mistake to take it in the afternoon,  but I failed. Bummer. Now I have to do the 3 hour test.

I gained 10 stinking pounds this month. I knew it. I could feel it and even told gg the night before that I thought I had gained 10 pounds.

baby is still head up. That makes me mervous, I don't know that my previous babes were in that position. I know I have a few more weeks before it is more of a concern but i'm a little worried.

And, I just got a phone call saying my iron was low and need to start taking iron.
Good news, baby is alive and kickin'. But what a bummer visit.
