Annual Block Picnic, and more renovations....

What fun we had at the Annual Palisades Drive Picnic on Sunday afternoon!

There was lots of food, fun and fellowship. We got to meet a few of our neighbors, and by the time we left at 6:00 p.m. (it started at 1:00!) we felt like we had lived here for years!

I keep telling this story, but I always wanted to live in a Dennis the Menace neighborhood where everyone knows everyone, etc. Well, I am finally getting to do it. I love this town and will be so sad to have to leave when the time comes.

My parents left on Saturday morning (boo hoo), Don had to work, and the puppies and I stayed home and cleaned house. I am getting everything ready for Don's parents who will be here tomorrow to visit. We are so excited about them coming and can't wait to show them the new house and this great town. I am certain Stitch will be delighted to see Gilligan, and I can only imagine how many times they will chase each other up and down four flights of stairs in this house! Hopefully Lilo and Ginger can become girl dog friends and continue to be the loving lap dogs that they are. A fun time will be had by all, and Don is off this long Labor Day weekend and we hope to show Pam and Jay the sites!

My Dad found a great concrete contractor on one of his morning walks. Don hired him on Sunday to lengthen the driveway and give me some room to turn around with my van. The van repairs from my episode with the garage wall came to just over $500.00. I ask the bookkeeper at the collision center if the price would be the same if I did it again, especially when the driveway gets icy. She nodded an emphatic "no". I think this is when Don decided he needed to get the driveway extended ASAP. My car goes in for repairs next Tuesday and they started on the driveway extension today:

Gotta get going...I have a surprise for the Richeys and need to get downtown and make it happen!

Would love to live in a neighborhood like that! Looks like a lot of fun!
The driveaway extension sounds like the ticket to hopefully no more bumps into the garage.
Have a great day!

Thanks for my HB wishes! I had a great b-day and what more could I ask for than to get so many painting classes?!?! My family and friends are so great! I wish you were here! Hugs ~ Kim
