Last weekend we stayed home from the lake so that David could work and I could have a small garage sale with friends. I decided I needed a little apron to hold money and such, but didn't want to pay for one. I haven't sewn anything in several months, but it was fun to put this together out of supplies I already had.

We missed very few weekends at the lake since Mom and Dad bought the cabin, and we're loving it! We spent Father's Day weekend here last weekend.

We had some time before the reunion, so after pondering our options, we decided to explore the little town of Salado.
Hope we get to go back next year!

Last weekend we traveled to Central Texas for a family reunion of David's mother's family. We ate really well the whole weekend, starting with lunch at Swadley's BBQ in OK City.
More to come from the reunion (where we also ate very well) but we had such a great foodie few days, I thought it deserved an honorable mention.

We been able to spend the last few weekends at the lake, where it's warm enough now for dogs to swim.
Until, that is, I saw it's twin in a different store. I paid 36% of the price of the dresser above for the one below. It's just perfect!
We're having a great time at the lake - playing with the dogs, eating, napping, decorating, and eating again!

We've talked for some time about having our floors refinished. They were in bad shape and getting worse all the time. What better time to have them done than when were were going to be gone for a week+ on vacation? Gracie went to stay with her grandparents and Riley went to his usual place, so the house was emptied and ready. The whole first floor has wood floors, so everything had to be moved out. The floor people moved the big furniture, but we had to empty everything and have it ready. It was way too much like moving for my taste and may have cured any crazy moving thoughts I had.
As if by magic, we returned home to this! I should have taken a picture, but near where David is standing, someone before us had started to paint a PINK quilt on the floor. It's been covered with a rug since we moved in, but it's nice that now it's really gone.

Somewhere between Charleston and Williamsburg, it began to rain. The rain settled in and stayed with us the rest of that day and all of the next. We walked around and ate dinner at one of the restaurants that he been recommended to us.
On our second full day in the area, we went to Jamestown and Yorktown.
The weather didn't always cooperate, but it was a great vacation! We headed home the next day and made it as far at Mt. Vernon, IL. After lunch at our favorite sandwich place in St. Louis, we made it home.
