Family Cruise Director

Family Time

I finally finished the backyard project Lisa and I started.



I left early (for me) Saturday morning and got 3 car loads of St. Augustine grass to replace the crushed granite. Over the next few years, my hope is that the St. Augustine will take over my backyard and I’ll finally have lush green grass to enjoy.

Here are the boys “helping” me in our family project. I do have to give Davis some credit, he did carry 4 squares of grass to the backyard. Thanks son.

I’m so excited! I’ve been wanting St. Augustine every summer since we moved in. I can’t wait for it to start growing.

Drake has finally decided it’s ok to talk. He probably has a 20 word vocab that I’m working on daily to expand. However, he still refuses to say “Davis”.

Here we’re talking about colors. I had to bring in boats and cars in order for him to pay any attention. Can you say, “stubborn”. I have no idea where he got that from. {{giggle}}

Jason received the fish he caught in Alaska and shipped home to us. He went all out and made us Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch, grilled corn that he chucked, and green beans. It was AMAZING!

I was so proud of him. He’s such an excellent cook. Great job, baby!

Even the boys were thumbs up! They ate all of it. Good thing – we’ve got a freezer full.

You can imagine their disappointment when they received mini-corn dogs for dinner the next night when Mom cooked. {{HA! That’s reality babies}}

  4. I love your backyard. I might just have to steal the idea of the area under your trampoline. I don’t know what to do for mine and that is a wonderful idea.
