Baby Gavin

Gavin with grandpa

WE have some exciting news. Monica and Sean had a little baby boy on June 15, 2009. we were able to go visit them this past weekend and I must say that Gavin Kendall is absolutely beautiful and perfect and is way loved by his Grandparents. He weight in at 9 pounds 14 oz. and 21.5 inches long. We will be going up to stay with them to help out the end of July and I am already excited to be there. Grandchildren are the absolutely best things ever. Its your reward for having children.

The other day I was driving the van home from work and one of the ladies in the van was talking about how she has made it a goal to work in the yard for 15 minutes a day. I thought what a great idea and so Daryl and I decided to implement it. As any of you know, that know my husband, he is a hard worker and once he gets started he doesn't quit. Anyway we have been working in the yard, I work for 15 minutes and Daryl just keeps going until it gets dark and he can't see to do anymore. The best thing about this is that tons of stuff is getting done around the yard. We have pulled all the weeds in the swimming pool and put black plastic down to keep the weeds under control. We have pulled weeds by our few raspberry plants and planted 6 tomato plants- which I am way excited about. Daryl has moved a fence post so he can construct a gate into our back yard and has cut down branches off a pine tree that gets in the way. He is currently working on a new flower bed in our front yard under the guest bedroom which is staring to look really nice. I think the thing I love the most is that the front flower bed by the porch is now finished and boy does it look nice. He did such a wonderful job, I am so proud of the look, I know it adds alot to the front yard. Hope you all can see what a great job he did.
