The Picnic Table

Chris had this worn out old
picnic table ont he side of the house.
(so no before pic)
 
I have used it several times to set items
I wanted to spray paint.
 
All it needed was a little love...
 
and more BOARDS!
LOL
 
I told him if he would get the wood
I would fix the table....
he got the wood and went ahead and
replaced the pieces.
 
Now to pressure wash the flaking
paint on the body and
I will be ready to paint!
 
What shall I put on this table?
 
 
 
 
Cause you know that I am not just painting
it a solid color!!!
 
How about something like
bees and ants?
 
 
Bright bold flowers?

 
Or a game?

 
Guess you will have to wait a couple
of weeks to see.
I have a lot going the next couple
of weekends so it will have to wait some!
 
Thanks for stopping in,

Moving on Up

This is Caleb walking across the stage

real camera but NO I took only the cell)!

Happy 4th Anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. Jackson
4 years ago today you
said I do!
 
 
Happy Anniversary!!
 
Let's look back and remember
that day.....
 
 
 
Such a beautiful couple.
 
Meet the guys that helped make
my son's day a special one.
 
 
 
The ladies that helped to make it special...
 
 
Britney with her mom and the ladies!
 
 
 
I actually spent more time with the
guys since Britney had her uncle
and family friend working with her.
 
These guys are the best.
 
 
 
 
 
The wedding with Nick doing the
marrying of the couple.
 
 
The KISS!
 
 
The group!
 
 
Gotta love the fun they were willing to have.
 

 
Check out Cory's face!! lol
 
 
 
I love this.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Another fav of mine.
 
 
Russ was giving the bestman speech!
 

 
And that speech brought tears to
Cory's eyes.
It's okay, mom was crying too.
 
 
And Britney's dad was giving his
speech.

 
 
I have photographed many weddings but
this had to be the most beautiful, and
not cause it was my son...
the colors just went so well
together..
Black
White
and
Red.

 
It was a beautiful day in Southern Calif
at a winery. Slight breeze,
sun not so bright, beauiful blue
sky and great people all around!
 
So thankful that I could be there
not only as the mom of the groom
but as a photographer.
Thankful that my son found such
an amazing woman to share is life
with.
 
I love you both with all my heart
Britney and Cory.
 
Thanks for stopping in,
Mom

Another This, That and The Other



This pic was taken a year or so
ago but Dakota is hoping
that everyone had a great
Memorial Day.


Dakota wanting in...and I am 
not moving fast enough.


Out a bit with the camera on Sunday.
Stopped on the side of the road for
some pics.


Love Queen Anne's Lace.




Biggest "blower" I have seen
in a long time!


Check out this tree...
tree hugging tree
or would that be a tree huger?

           

Isn't he just adorable?
Si, he is so laid back, like
he had not care in the world.
Si is part pit and part husky.
Love those eyes.



Saw these in a tree on the side of the rode...
course they were calling my name.




Yep....I was enjoying these flowers.
So pretty.

Thanks for stopping in,
Pam


Saturdays Adventures - Part 2

Good morning!
 
If you read my last post you will
understand why I call my
Saturday and adventure!!
 
My friend Theresa AKA T and
I started out going ONE place!
LOL
And ended up going several
places.
 
This would be the Farmers Market.
We ended up here since Bates Nursery
did not have an herb she wanted.
 
 
Of course I was just wondering around
taking in the view and taking
pics.
 
 
 
Loved this....
 
 
 
 
 
Loaded down for sure.
 
 
There was a paint race in downtown
Saturday and some of the runners
ended up at the Farmers Market!
 
 
 
Yep, you got it....when PIGS fly!
 
 
 
After leaving there we headed to lunch.
 
 
Large menu.
 
 
No clue....
 
 
But this was yummy.
 
 
Loved the painted walls.
 
 
 
My fruit really looked good.....
and it tasted great!
 
 
After this.....we were off again,
only for home!
Where I decided to put the plants I
got at Bates in the ground....
but after getting me up at the
break of dawn for this day,
T went home and took a NAP!
 
Thanks for stopping in,
