Kitchen Renovation

So we had a big renovation happening over the last 2 weeks that I'm so excited about. We have out grown our table but don't have alot of room to get a bigger one. I've always loved the corner kitchen nook and had the idea to build a half wall and put in built in bench seating for our own. A contractor came and did the half wall and extended our flooring. My dad and I made the built in benches (that the tops come off for storage) and I had a local upholsterer make my cushions. I am so happy with how it turned out and now we don't have to buy a new table. On the benches alone I can fit 7. I want to change the color of my table and that is it. Thanks Dad!!!!

Picnic Table

So everytime my dad comes he needs a project so I had him build me a picnic table. I wanted a wide one with wide seats. It turned out amazing and can fit 12 people!!!!

Olivia supervising grandpa but she didn't like the noise of the saw.

All 3 girls out with grandpa, but apparently they were bored with watching and decided to read.

Kaitlyn and Derick sanding away.
I didn't get a picture of us painting it but I just love the color and how it turned out.

Easter and mom's 60th birthday

My mom and dad are here visiting and we got to celebrate my mom's "60th" birthday and Easter. The day they got here Olivia had her preschool easter egg hunt that they came too as well.

Derick is a teenager!!!!

Big D turned 13 in February. Him and a few friends went paint balling and he got air soft gun stuff for his presents. Derick is a good kid and he better stay that way!!!!
