This weekend we went to St. Louis to visit John, Amanda, and Ava. Jeff and Laurie met us down there too. Ava was a ball. She had so much fun playing with Buddy. Here are a few pictures from the weekend. When we got home we found some small birds that had just been born next to a tree in our yard.

Now that the wedding is over, Laurie and I can spend some time working on small projects around the house. We built a storage barn in the back yard a couple of weeks ago, and mom and dad came down this past weekend to help put some finishing touches on it. We also put in a new screen door for the front entryway. It has a glass bottom half, and a glass top half that slides down and pulls out a screen so we can have a screen door when it's nice out. Laurie and mom worked on some landscaping too this weekend.

Saturday mom and I planted flowers. On Mother's day Paul and I had brunch with his family and celebrated Stan's birthday with a famous Mrs. Sawaya cake! After that we went to Grandma Richards' and visited with the fam. The tulips were a suprise from Paul. They were beautiful!

Laurie and I are organizing a neighborhood garage sale. We passed flyers out to all the homes in the neighborhood the other night. With the move to the new house, and all the wedding stuff we are busting at the seams lately in all all closets. I trapped Laurie in one of the spare bedrooms and had her go through all of her storage boxes. We managed to get a lot of things set aside for the garage sale.

Last weekend Laurie and I started building a small storage barn in the back yard. It will be something small but still big enough to hold all the loose garden tools and the lawnmower that are taking up space in the garage.
