Blake's Mustangs played in the Summer Sizzler tournament in West Des Moines this weekend. They played hard and ended up winning their first Sunday game and were placed to play the #1 seed team. They lost to the #1 seed 10-6. The other team was a 7 years old team and was a little suprised to find out they were playing 6 year olds.

It has been 8 months and we have made some progress on our master suite addition project. We are pretty sure we are going to have this paid for before it is ever done.
We have carpet, the walls are painted, the trim is in and the pictures are up. Nana Becky has been here and does approve. The bedroom is done, but the bathroom....
Mostly, we can't decide if we want a super cool shower or a jacuzzi. We would have it done if we didn't keep changing our mind.
We have installed the new LG High Efficiency washer dryer just behind the doors in the picture above. That has been a huge improvement. No more trips to the basement!!
The boys "tree house". This weekend will be their first time inside once they finish the ladder. Grandpa Al built the castle and Dave put it up on stilts.

And finally a little tour through Amy's gardens just because.....

Blake Underwood (in the pink tied-dyed shirt) hosted the festivities with Nana Becky. He decorated the walls, made fortune place cards, skirted the cake table, and made fruit kabobs. Two cakes doubled the choices--a red velvet with cream cheese frosting for Al and a sweet pink and chocolate marble cake for Kim.
The Jerdees replaced the furniture relics of their living (tv) room with a family of comfortable lounges.
