We had a pumpkin decorating contest at South Lawn... I know, it looks like a three year old did it. I tried my best :-)

We all walked in the Making Strides 5k for Cheryl (my MIL). She was diagnosed with bone cancer that spread from her breast. She's staying strong! Prayers would be appreciated.

Our deck was horrible! It's needed stained since we moved in... Bill power washed it and we stained it a darker color. I think it came out looking pretty darn nice!

... and it's finally done!
We went to The Velvet Ice cream factory a few weekends ago...

We all had ice cream
and Palmer was bff with the sheep

adventures in caramel corn...

Delicious!!!! (if I do say so myself)

Bill and I went fishing yesterday and again today. We were using minnows and catching a ton (I caught way more than he did :-). We were just fishing in the canal behind his mom and dad's house and Bill goes inside to help his mom and dad pack up the car. All of the sudden, I hear a giant SPLASH... Brin fell in. The canal is a good 2 or 3 feet below the edge, so for me to lift an 80 pound dog by her collar/skin on her neck while laying on my stomach in the mud was pretty unlikely. Brin also showed me that she sucks at swimming when under pressure-so I'm trying to hold her head above water. So at this point, I'm screaming for Bill to come help. He comes down from the house and can't stop laughing long enough to help me hoist her up. He finally helps me, we get her up on land (not before she soaks me from head to toe). It was not funny at the time, but is since she's okay. It was an eventful fishing fiasco for sure.
*Walking fail for Brin*
