This weekend we were lucky enough to have a 3 day weekend due to the 4th of July!
We started our Friday with a little excitement. I saw a house for sale about 3 blocks away from our current house but in the right school district! I made a call and we were able to get in and check it out!
Ideally one of my must haves was that our next house was either a dutch colonial or a center hall colonial and this is neither, but surprisingly it was one of the only houses that has felt like it could be home. It has good bones, lots of bedrooms and space, an old kitchen that I won’t feel bad about ripping it out completely and a pool! A pool was never our list, but it’s nice that this one has one. We shall see what happens. Fingers crossed that whatever is meant to be will be.
We spent most of our Friday painting away. We sell some paintings in my One Kings Lane market place store and we have sold out of paintings and needed to fill up the shop!
Out came the paint and the massive canvases. The paintings take a lot of layers so we had everything out in the backyard in the hopes that the nice weather would speed up the drying process. Everything out in the open though led to lots of little hands that also wanted to paint.
Luckily we had a kid’s easel that we had yet to open. Out it went and our little Picasso’s went to work.
Here is a peek at one of the finished paintings that Hudson thanked me for making and told me was beautiful. Ah he is such a sweet kid.
On Saturday we headed out east to spend the day at a family member’s beach house.
Asher enjoyed the beach:
We tried to take a group shot of most of the kids. It didn’t work. Note to self don’t try taking a photo on a boat where at any second one kid could have pushed another kid into the water. Ah! They were all fine, but every single parent was having a mini heart attack. Yes folks that’s Hudson trying to bite Asher.
Hudson enjoyed their dock thoroughly. He loved running out and checking on all of the little minnows in the water.
The little kids have started to out number the adults. Loved seeing this set up of mini Adirondack chairs.
Me and my main guy. He actually let me take a photo! Ok he scrunched up his face like crazy, but he smiled for a photo. Progress!
Everyone had the best time with the slip and slide we bought. Best $20 we have spent. Why bring dessert or flowers when you can bring entertainment.
We got home around midnight and it’s safe to say we spent a lot of our Sunday in our PJ’s! We had a low key day playing in the backyard. The boys were thrilled that their Grandma and Pop pop came over to play and we got a little more work done.
Finished painting a desk that also headed to our One King Lanes shop:
Started another painting:
Plus I got to work on my presentation for Haven! Are any of you coming? I’m totally nervous! We should have a fun session so if you are attending come find me and say hello!
