Our small group was representing!
Pushing toward the finish line! Go Hubby Go!
Hubby & his first 5k medal! Way to go!
This is what happens when a yellow lab follows your every move as you cut the grass...you end up with a dog that has green feet!We were in a serious hurry to get the yard done as we had a family wedding to attend late in the afternoon. It was a beautiful day for a wedding & everything went off just perfectly, complete with a ring gag from the groom's attendants. My mom & I along with some other family members were in charge of the cake cutting & drinks. I was helping out with cake for the first time & let me tell you, it's definitely not the easiest job in the world. However, cake tastes the same whether it looks good on the plate or not so no worries! We stuck around to help with the cleanup after basically everyone had left. It never ceases to amaze me how much work a wedding can be & also how little help you can get at times when you don't specifically ask for it!
The Happy Couple...Josh & Callie Jo Maher!
The cake & beverage crew!
Can't forget to save the topper!
Hubby & I
Most all of the women on my dad's side of the family...minus just a few!
We finished up the evening with pizza & the 20-inning St. Louis Cards vs. Mets game! Seriously, a 20 inning game...that's just stupid!! The Cards ended up losing that one, but I can't hardly thinkg they minded after 6 hours & 53 minutes of baseball!Sunday brought more fun & events starting off with our morning church service. We're doing a series on prayer right now & it couldn't be more applicable to my prayer life...or lack of prayer life. After church we grabbed a quick lunch, ran to Lowe's from some extra supplies & got busy in the backyard. Hubby decided we would save the money from having the nursery plant the tree & he would do it himself. He did a fantastic job...the tree looks amazing! While he worked on the tree, I tried to keep Bogey out of the way & also put together a few planters for the deck. I just love planters that are overflowing with colorful flowers!
We've got the tree in the hole...now for some quick landscaping!
The finished project getting a good, long drink!
One of the planters on the right & our new patio furniture. We're still waiting on a couple of chairs & we still need to buy an umbrella but I love the wicker!
In typical fashion, we finished off the weekend with small group & a walk/run (this time) with Bogey. We still had plenty to do, but I finally made us sit down at 9:00 so we could catch up on Lost and at least have a few moments to catch our breath before starting a new week!
Silly dog...you look so innocent so why did you have to dig up all the mulch around our new tree while we were gone to small group?!? Unfortunately we weren't surprised!
