Catherine and I went over to Home Depot to pick up some paint. When we came out we saw this gorgeous sky above the store.
It's amazing where you find beauty when you are busy thinking about and doing other things. I'm so glad I keep my baby camera with me all the time.

Here comes the new furniture we ordered a couple of weeks ago.
Now to get more of the items put away that were moved for the painting and carpeting adventure.
Home Sweet Home!
Does anyone else hate to do this, but love it when it is finished?

That's our daughter and two of our grandsons in the image above.
Then it's finally time to go home.
Huge thanks to Erica for allowing us to enjoy her pool and lake. Thanks, too, to our daughter Catherine who was here to help us with all the dogs. We all had a blast!
I hope you've enjoyed this great summer fun with us.

While we were enjoying our friend Erica's pool with our grandsons, I couldn't help but notice the beautiful Blue Spruce.
If you look beyond the pool, you see a green lawn. Far at the other end of that lawn is a fairly large pond. Tomorrow I'll share the images of the dogs doing some frogging down at the lake. ;)

The dogs have had a swim, the boys have had a swim, and now it's time to sail the remote control sailboats. The taller sailboat was a gift to David a few years ago. Then Grandpa wanted one for himself so bought the smaller one. Today there will be a race!
We sure had a good time with the boys and the boats. The boys have a real Norwegian seaman to teach them to sail. ;)
This is so much fun with all the boys (of all ages!)

Our three grandsons range in age from 13 to 6 so we had a separate swim time for them and for our Labrador Retrievers when we visited our friend's home. Today it's the boys' turn.
David and Grandpa brought along their radio controlled sail boats. As soon as the boys were out of the pool and Grandpa got the sailboats ready to sail the great sailboat race began.
The sailboat pictures are coming tomorrow. I hope you'll tune in to see the fun when "the boys" raced their boats.
All the best,

We so enjoyed watching our Labrador Retrievers Penny and Erik in the pool at our friend Erica's home.
We had so much fun with the dogs in the pool, then the boys in the pool, then Grandpa and the boys sailboat racing that I took lots and lots of pictures. I'm going to share a few of them in their natural segments today and in the next couple of days. I hope you enjoy them with us.
In the picture above is also our daughter, Catherine, who is Penny and Erik's trainer.
Tune in tomorrow for images of the boys' turn in the pool while the dogs stand guard poolside.
