We are still married!....

Must be true love if it survived chain link fence building. And we didn't kill any kids(in fact, they worked as hard as we did, almost). I can't begin to tell you how hard this was to do, and in the rain all day yesterday. We started Saturday morning, early, and didn't get finished til noon on Wednesday. If you ever get an estimate to have one put in and think its too much to pay, trust me it isn't.


(halfway around)

(hole in the side of pool, about 3 feet across- pool man came today and is gearing up to get started soon-yeah)



This morning during breakfast I noticed these beautiful spiderwebs on the hollies out front.







There were 16 of them!



I also snapped some pictures of these gorgeous flowers this morning. My mom tells me every year what they are and I always forget. Those are grape leaves surrounding the blooms(no relation).






We are headed to Atlanta State Park tomorrow for a few days of camping and boating. Will have some good pics I hope! The kids are geeked. Last time I camped at this place we had tornadoes, fallen trees, snakes, flooded tent, stolen fish and equipment and Mark got two tickets. It was NOT a good time. Of course none of that will happen this time though, will it? NO!

In a few weeks we plan to vist Caddo State Park and take the canoe. Not sure if we'll camp or not, they are known for alligators and snakes(and maybe even bigfoot).

Wow...that looks like a heck of a project, but it must feel wonderful to finally get it done!

Have a great time camping...I think it will be the perfect break, and only good things will happen.

It's good to do it yourselves, we paid someone to put up our wood fence, cost a small fortune!
Have fun camping!
My idea of "ruffing it" is a hotel room. My husband just shakes his head at me. lol

Yikes - - - maybe you like spiders, but pas moi!!!!

Glad you survived the fence ordeal. There just ARE some things it is WORTH it to pay to have done, aren't there?

Looking forward to seeing your camping photos. You deserve some fun now after all that work.
