4th of July 2015

For the 4th of July we went up to my parent's house and had a really fun weekend.
We started with the local parade.  Emmett was super tired because he decided to choose this weekend to cry and not sleep or eat!  The night before the parade he was up till 10 pm screaming and woke up that morning at 5am screaming.  So there you go!  Some things are just not in your control lol.

We went to the parade and he fell asleep just before it started, but as soon as he heard all the excitement he was up and clapping.  There was one moment when he got so excited he stood in his stroller clapping and screaming yay! He looked like he would burst with excitement which made it worth the whole endeavor.

After the parade we had lunch, then went swimming and then dinner and back out to watch the fireworks.

Lately we have been pretty busy.  Doing what, I am not sure lol.  I just find that time is flying by. 

I am going to try to blog more often because I know I will want to look back some day and see when Emmett was little and what we were up to.

Right now I am working on the art for NHRA reunion.
I am taking care of Emmett (who seems to be entering a stage of resistance to everything)
This is how the day goes: Do you want to eat ? NO
Do you want to sleep? No
DO you want to play? No not with my toys
Do you want to brush teeth ? No
 Its not really that bad, but I do find he always resists at first and then when I say you do it we can at least get through a few tasks LOL.

In TV we are really liking the bachelorette
(mostly just to laugh and make fun of everyone.  Here is a tip don't go on reality tv if you don't want people to make fun of you)

If you watch this show and really want to laugh read this blog

I am also really liking this new show called Astronauts wives

We also have been swimming a lot and trying to make it through the humidity!
This is the most humid summer ever!

Have you ever thought of a project that you want to do for a long time?  Then suddenly one day you just decide I have to do this.  Well our upstairs bathroom is a disaster area.   From afar you might think its not that bad but when you look up close its definately not good!  The bathroom was originally painted with oil paint.  The last people who lived here painted over that with normal paint and of course that did not adhere right so it was pealing.  The other day when I was in there I pulled on the paint and it came off in a giant sheet!  So I started pealing...

Turns out we will have to peal all of that paint off and treat the walls and then primer and then paint again.  One thing leads to another because to properly remove the paint we have to remove the toilet and once we do that we might as well get a new one.  And we don't have a big budget to get all of this done!  Here is what it looks like so far lol...

The plan is to paint it a bright white color, get a new mirror that has a nice white frame. We will stain the cupboard a grey color.  Sadly the top has to stay cause we don't have the funds.  We will replace the toilet and the floor with some tile.  I also plan to get a tall storage cabinet from ikea for the corner.

We will see how long this takes.

Summer is Here

Summer is here and we are making the most of it!
We have been to the pool a few times already and we are getting out of the house most days.

Its seems like there is always so much going on, but I don't necessarily feel like sitting down and writing about it.  Emmett is now 16 months old.  He is obsessed with clocks.  He can spot a clock from a mile away.  His main food groups is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and apple sauce.

He is not really into cuddling and I guess he never has been, but especially now he just wants to go go go...

The End of Full-Bore

My Grandpa Roy has decided that he can no longer run the Full- Bore business.  Its pretty amazing that he has been able to run a very successful business at the age of 80!  Most people stop working and retire way before 80 years old.  He is such brilliant engineer and business man that everyone keeps asking him, what are you going to do now?

My mom and I have been helping him close down his shop and clean everything out.  Its an amazing amount of work.

We will all miss Full-Bore, but its time to move on to more relaxing things.
