It's Summer!

I know I have been a BAD blogger. Summer is soo busy for me. It is the high season at the restaurant, which means lots of weddings and business! We had two back to back today! Since my last post we renovated our bar, celebrated with a grand opening, Canal Day, then my family visited from TN...and the list goes are some photos of what I have been up to:
The bar during demolition:

Back in business

Lots of things going on between these two photos...Going to the beach, weddings, gardening...and lots more...One thing I wish I had a photo of..and some people may not think this is funny...or that you had to be there to appreciate it. A few weeks ago, my mom was at the restaurant late and my friend, Lisa took us back down the street to our house. As we were backing out of the alley, we saw lot of fire trucks driving through our town. We live in a small town and when you see that many fire trucks driving somewhere...we follow to check it out. We drove out of town a mile or so and found that there was a fire at a home. Lisa drove us back into town and when we made this sharp turn on our street, Lisa said, "WHAT IS THAT???" I looked and wrapped around the corner on the road was a hose from a fire truck. We weren't sure what to Lisa and I jumped out of her truck (I am in a skirt and Lisa had a littler surgery and had stiches on her shoulder). We pulled 200ft of hose into her truck, laughing hysterically. After contemplating what to do with it, we decided to drive back out to the fire. I called the fire chief and left a message that we had this hose. As we drove out of town we passed a fire truck...they were helping an ambulance. Then one of the fireman started running after us..."Hey, you have our hose!"...well we finally gave them the hose back. They must have been flying through town when they made that turn. I guess you really did have to be there...but it was a good deed and it was fun too!
I have lots of great photos to share but I am so tired...I'll post again. Here's a photo of Landen and Aislyn after a day of swimming...
Worn out

They were precious that day at the pool. I can understand why they fell asleep going home. You should be very proud of both of them. Very cute and well mannered.
