Alum Creek

Saturday we went up to Alum Creek lake with some friends.  It was so fun, and Owen had a blast playing in the water and digging in the sand.

Over the hill...

Yesterday was Casey's birthday.  We celebrated with presents in the morning, cupcakes with friends, and a date at night (that's a big deal...we haven't been on many out of the house dates since Owen was born).  Our date was going to a Columbus Crew soccer game with some friends.  It was a fun day celebrating the day of Casey's birth.

*Special thanks to the Alldredges, the Karens, and Sarah and Roger for helping make Casey's day a success.

Projects: Part 2 The desk

I found this gem of a desk at a yard sale for $8.  I had been looking for a desk for a long time, and didn't think I could do much better price-wise.  After removing the back, priming, painting, sanding, staining, waxing, and replacing the hardware, I'm pretty sure we love it.

Happy 4th!

We had a great 4th of July!  It started with the Upper Arlington parade and ended with a barbecue with friends. (I only have pictures at the parade because my camera's battery died.)

 Owen seems less than enthused.

 Yes, that is a real snake.

 Watching the parade.

I think Casey's facebook status really sums it up, "Parades are way more fun with kids. I don't think that I can remember really enjoying a parade before today. Owen just sat on my lap saying, "more, more" the whole time, and he loved waiving at everyone."
