Playing Hardball

We had a wonderful time in Las Vegas , George and Judy have such a beautiful home and are always so welcoming. Here are some pictures of the backyard. The first is the temperature, it was about 100degrees every day. Just perfect weather for enjoying the pool and the kids outside.

Here is the pool we lounged around in first thing in the morning. As you can see we were really roughing it.

To take the picture above I am standing under a little cabana. Below is a picture of the tile work on a table out on the patio. It is so pretty, really makes you feel like you are on a beach in Mexico.

The kids would enjoy root beer floats at the bar with Grandpa George. The bar has the same beautiful tile work as the table above.

Now for the hard ball part. We made an offer on a building on Thursday of last week, they sent us a counter offer on Monday. Today Paul and I sent them another offer. They are looking for a quick closing date, so we are low balling them a bit...if they are in a hurry to sell then we have the advantage (I hope). The building has been on the market for almost three months and we are there first interested party. I will keep you posted on what the scoop is as things come along. Wish us luck.

Doesn't it Just Figure?

I finally get my lazy bum going and fire up my computer to blog and blogger will not let me upload any photos for you tonight. Cracks me up, I have tons of pictures to show you.

Paul and the kids did a trip to Vegas to visit with George and Judy. I stayed here and worked for a week and then I flew out and met them for four days. We had a great time, someday I will show you some pictures to prove it!

We got home a week ago today and spent last week getting the kids into the school routine. Q was a bit nervous about starting first grade, but by Friday he had decided he likes it well enough.

Dad and Corinne got here Wednesday evening and we had a great visit. (I have some wonderful pictures to show you of their trip too) They left this morning, to head home. They have been away for almost three weeks, it sounds like they had a great trip. I am sure they are looking forward to their own bed. I love visiting and traveling , but nothing beats my own bed.

I even have some finished knitting to show you...all this suspense. I am going to have blog again. Soon.
