Well, we're done...

Finally! We only had a little power washing to do this morning, so we finished by 11:30 or so. We waited until 9:00 to start to be a little courteous to our neighbors that were sleeping off all the parties yesterday:)

Anyway, Brian told me about a place to get cantilevered umbrellas, so mom and I hopped in the car and off we went! They were EXTREMELY cheap (which I'm sure means that they won't last very long) so I got two! They are about 9 1/2 feet wide - nice and big! As you can see, we have a very big deck that gets lots of afternoon sun...





(Liv - chiling on the deck)







And we need to get a little table and chairs for here. I'm still looking...



Let me know what you think - I wasn't sure about the rust color, but I really like the way it complements the brick and terra cotta planters.

And I noticed that there was something very important missing from this blog - you have seen numerous pictures of my girls, but none of my boys!

The boys playing on the deck - Chauncey and Baxter....



Brian's boy, Chauncey aka "The protector of all he surveys" Don't even try to get near me or the girls, unless he know you. He even gets upset with Brian when we joke around if he thinks Brian is threatening me! He's the greatest watchdog in the world. I fully believe he would lay down his life for Brian, me or either of the girls. He's very protective of them...






And this is my boy - my Baxter... He's not so very protective - he's a big lump of love who gives me a smile as soon as I walk through the door. He's just got a gentle soul and there are not enough words to describe how sweet and loving he is...
