Summer Lovin'!!

Summer is in full swing! I love summer and I tell myself that this year I'm going to sit in my lawn chair, read and drink diet coke. So far, it hasn't happened...This is what's been going on.







Clancy went to Europe for ten days! He had a great time, took great pictures and he's really grumpy when he has jet lag. Here is a great picture of the Louvre in Paris. The picture of him on the Segue was also in Paris. I'm so proud of him for working so hard to earn his way. It was definitely a memorable adventure. While he was gone Clayton and I painted his room and had a lot of fun doing a "make over". He and I also went to the beach with my sis and her girls. We had so much fun, the weather was nice for a couple of the days and typical for a couple of the days! We went to Tillamook, Oceanside and Lincoln City. It's fun to take Lisa and her crew to the beach because they live in Utah and never see it, so it's a huge treat for them.

We've already been floating the river. It's the perfect thing to do when it's so hot outside. Cools you off real quick. Clancy is volunteering at he library one afternoon a week. It's hard to find enough to keep him busy...
My friend, Cheryl, and I found some tables at a yard sale for $2.50 each. We had a painting party and here they are. Cheryl painted hers black and she copied a drawing freehand! She's mighty talented! Mine is the red one with the stars. I traced a stencil for the stars and then masked them off with tape. Pretty lame compared to what Cheryl can do!








The Fourth was a lot of fun. Dave and Clayton were in the parade again! We had about 15 people here to watch it and it was fun to visit beforehand. In the afternoon we were all too hot so we took a dip in the river. It was so refreshing! Finally, we went to fireworks at the school. It's really the best show I've ever watched! It's hard to believe it, but this little town puts on a great show.













Yesterday we celebrated Gma Lovell's 94th birthday! She is such a great woman and still has some spunk. I'm thankful to have her in my life.

There's still much to do for the rest of the summer. Boy Scout camp, Day Camp, Paul family reunion and then the long days of August...

Your table is adorable. I love it. We had fun at the parade in Corbet (and we'll be at your place next year!) and loved the fireworks show. It really is great. I hope you get a chance to relax in the yard with a diet coke!

Thanks for the post! My withdrawal symptoms have subsided. I like the furniture. I admire people who can paint with red - it's just against my nature!

You're table turned out soooo cute. It's perfect with your red chairs. We need to go to some more garage sales and see what else we can find to paint :o)I had so much fun!!!

Hey lady,
Remind me to serve you a diet coke the next time you come VTing! (do you like the hard stuff or caffeine free?)
There is lots more summer yet to enjoy! Go for it! So far, I have only been out to my garden swing twice, but now that girls camp is over......
