I also went to the fireplace store here in town and paid 1/2 down on a wood burning stove that will be installed in August! WOO-WHO!! We are pretty excited about this!
Then I ran to help set up county fair exhibits for a little while, and when I got home I made Matt help me pull out the washer and dryer for a clean-up job. We have lived here for almost 6 years and this has never been done! I could have made all my family members lint sweaters for Christmas with how much stuff I found back there! Needless to say that was a job that is good to have done. We had to take the laundry room door off so Matt could pull the washer out far enough to get it cleaned well enough behind it. My laundry room looks so good now, it smells good too! It is so clean Matt could do sterile surgery in there! Anyone need a cat spayed? Just kidding, hee hee hee.
Anyway, I was feeling bad that Matt was not doing anything fun on his day off and because I was spending so much money, so I suggested we head up to the hills for dinner again. He was all about that! So we loaded up the fixins for hamburgers and away we went.
When we got up there, the 4th step I took was in a nice fresh cow pie. You gotta love open range! Well, Kendal lasted longer than me, but eventually she found one too. Here she is cleaning her shoe, so cute! It is so nice that she is actually caring about that kind of thing now. A year ago she would have cared less.
The Proctors, our wonderful neighbors, also came up. Here is Matt, Derek, and Austin retrieving their arrows from the target. It is so nice being in the great outdoors, feeling the cool breeze, and living the city behind!
Kelsey was getting a little cold so I got the blanket and started to wrap her up. Kendal of course ran into the blanket and they became 'the horse.' It was so cute to hear Kendal squeal as she brought up the rear. I kept telling Kelsey to walk a little slower so Kendal wouldn't fall until she told me that Kendal was pushing her that fast!
It was a great day with Matt home and it turned out nice. I love summer and I love spending it with my family.
