What fun! Rich had the day off today so we took the opportunity to go shopping for patio furniture, something we have been planning to do ever since he and the children put in the patio and fire pit. The area between our house and the garage was useless just a few months ago and now it’s a lovely place to relax with friends and family, and read my books.
I like the bright white and navy blue. And I LOVE the fact that these pieces were made in the USA.
Somehow I got a little distracted by the cute girl on the sofa. It’s easy to do.
Incidentally, I just have to tell you….the dress Sarah is wearing was one that I bought 13 years ago when I was expecting Gracie. Grace wore it constantly when she was Sarah’s age and I’m so glad I kept it.
The chairs go ’round and ’round so of course that’s where Sethie wanted to sit.
When we sit on the sofa, this is the view we see; (now with Sarah taking a turn on the chair)……
Seth can entertain us by racing down the walkway on his bike.
I just can’t help it….I am now making plans to decorate with containers of flowers and who knows what else. I’ll have to find my stack of Country Living magazines to look for ideas.
The children are toasting marshmallows this evening. When Grace isn’t eating her treat, she’s singing for us.
I honestly need to go find bug spray, however.
Happy 4th of July to all my fellow USA citizens! I hope you have a great day with your friends and family. You are loved. xoxo
“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun.”
