Hello my friends! I continue to try to convince
brainwash my husband into agreeing with the idea of a red farmhouse. Thank you to all who voted on what color to paint it. Especially the ones who agreed with me. :-D I did a google search for images of red farmhouses and was further encouraged that it was a perfect choice. Because before that I googled paint colors for farmhouses and didn't see one that I loved as much. THEN.. I opened the photo of our house in PhotoShop and did a bit of "paint bucket-ing" to see what our house might really look like in "barn red". And guess what? I like it! What do you think?
We've had another nice long run of beautiful warm days so on Sunday our son got the little quad ATV (all terrain vehicle) running for the boys to have some fun with. We took some lawn chairs out and enjoyed watching the little guys zoom around.
Caleb loves it when I take photos and was more intent on smiling for me than watching where he was going. His daddy had a talk with him about that.
They took turns and this is Hayden coming around the track towards us.
We are near the flight path for airplanes heading to land at PDX, Portland International Airport and I zoomed in and snapped an image of this big jet flying over us.
Hayden again.. they sure have fun riding on this little thing.
Those two trees to the left are pear trees and they are budding out!
In fact, we were sitting under another pear tree and I zoomed in on the buds for you to see.
Caleb, wave at grandma! :-)
Our Kerria Japonica, aka Japanese Rose, aka globeflower. This is very early for it to be in bloom.
I have 3 more colors in my blanket since my last photo - Turmeric - a coppery gold, Cadet - a dusty blue, and Ice Lily - a dusty rose.
Shhh.. don't tell Dayle.. but I need him to help me roll up "Spearmint" in a bit. I think my 3 favorite color run is the taupe, aqua and grape.
Buddy got a haircut a week ago.. we asked for a bit shorter and they did! But this cut will last longer than the last one. :-)
