Take Me Out to the Ballgame(s) . . . and the Beach . . . and the Beefcake Factory . . . and Disneyland!

Tank and boys at the Angels game,

And the Dodgers game!
The boy gets around!
Caleb and Cole with their Grandpa at the Dodgers game.
And the beach . . .
Brock's building an architecturally correct sand castle,
while Cooper,
      flexes his muscles on a California beach.
I wonder who they get the beefcake vibe from?
Ah yes, we should've known.
And to Disneyland!
Four handsome boys,
rocking downtown Disney.
You guys have the best vacations!
Hope you had a ball!

Past the river,
and through the woods
and the mountains 
 you'll find this quaint little town.
And if you turn on the right ave. . .
you'll see where we spend some of our free time.
This past weekend we worked on the bathroom and kitchen.
It went from this . . . ew.

To this . . . gorgeous blank canvas. 

Ready for the kitchen?
The view from the pantry.
Our resident Drama Queen.
Yes, that is a bathroom off the kitchen.
Soon to be a laundry room.
Our wall of doors.
#1 to the basement. #2 was the servants staircase to the 2nd floor and of course the lovely bathroom/laundry room.
The door just out of the top shot,
is below.
It goes into the butlers pantry,
soon to be a breakfast nook.
This doorway
leads to the pantry,
and the one on the left goes to the backyard.
The back door is open here, and is partially blocking the wood storage niche. It's an empty 6'x6' space,
but it holds so much potential!
So that's it for now!
 Tons more to come later.

More July Happenings!

Because I know all ya'll just can't get enough!
Michelle went to LA, and took some time to lounge around Monica and Doug's fabulous pool.
Todd, Corinna and kids headed up to PA to do demolition on the old 1894 home.
Nice photo-bomb ghostly specter!
(Actually that was the flash positioned just right. After a day of work, I wasn't looking my best.)
Once you get past the fact that one of Monica's workers is trying on some very cute shoes, you'll see our Monica in the throes of one honkin belly laugh.
Two very adorable monkeys playing in a tree . . .
Christel has become so famous from her spot on ESPN,
that her boys are now chauffeured around town in a Ferrari.
 Well played Boys!
(Yeah, I totally made that up.)
I couldn't help but include this very precious one of our newest daddy.
I'd say Delilah has her daddy wrapped around every single finger.
Sunday dinner . . .
Hi Bo and Mo!
Love all you guys!
