Cherry picking πŸ’ πŸ’

I feel like photos such as this are going to be super fun for these kids to look back on someday. And maybe they'll laugh at their hairstyles or choice of shoes/pants/pose.... but hopefully they'll just look back with awesome memories of really fun summers spent doing things like cherry picking.

We hit 4 parks and splash pads, this being the final and favorite! And first in Spokane, apparently.

Busiest days EVER

Hosting a yard/bake sale fundraiser is no joke.
Seriously took up the entirety of like 4 days.
Still cleaning up afterwards.
But overall it was a success!
We made about 1K, and raised a lot of awareness about Days For Girls. Also - hopefully - taught my children some good lessons about serving others in big and little ways. 
It was awesome getting to talk to so many people - friends, neighbors, strangers, etc. 
And it was awesome getting my garage all cleaned out!! That felt so good!!
What a blessing to have awesome weather. The forecast had been awful just 2 days prior.
But the Lord fixed that for us! 
It was also fun giving people good deals. That might sound odd, but seeing how happy they were to get their "treasures" at super cheap prices was very gratifying. 
We'll probably do it again next year....but smaller. Much smaller. :)

"new" vanity/dresser for Courtney!

This is the "after" !  I think I have a "before" pic somewhere.  Basically it was all white, covered in stickers and tape, falling apart. Now it's painted a gorgeous pink and white, new knobs, and all repaired.

I got it done at nighttime after the kids were down, so it all was a big surprise. Brian helped me get it upstairs, so that when Courtney woke up it was sitting there in her room!  She FREAKED out, it was the best!!  Giggling and squealing and jumping. Oh man, so worth every bit of paint stuck under my fingernails.

Overpriced icecream, cheap happy memories

Yeah they may charge like ten times what an icecream should cost.  But...they drive to our house with that cute music playing. And my kids squeal with joy.  So...totally worth having a stack of dollar bills at-the-ready, so they can run out anytime they hear the jingle!
