Souvenirs from Ireland

Daideo and Mimi recently returned from a vacation to Ireland.
In their travels, they picked up a beautiful pair of shamrock earrings for Kaitlin and a uniquely illustrated letter "Z" for Zoey. The package arrived and would you believe ~ ~ Kaitlin spent hours with the contents. That's right.... the BUBBLE WRAP that protected the goodies STOLE the show!

Thanks, Daideo and Mimi - she loved the "POPPIES!" ;-)

Zoo Season is Here!

Yay! Zoo season has arrived. Last Tuesday we made our first trip of the year. Our friends Tara, Bronwyn and Hayden decided to take a fun day and head to the zoo too! It was a beautiful day, and we had a terrific time.

Bathroom: Before and After

We have been super-busy with our new bathroom remodel.
We hired our good friend Jordan to do the majority of the work. He layed new tile, installed the new sink, toilet, light fixtures and helped with lots of other details as well. He does excellent work!
Here are some before pictures:

And the after pictures:

I'm not sure the pictures do the new bathroom justice. Come over soon and see it for yourself! :)
