Pickin’ Peaches

Hayden’s parents kept the kids in Jackson for a few days to give Avery and I a little time to sew, run errands, eat lunch out, and breathe!  When they brought the kids back to Memphis, they spent the weekend with us.  We decided to stop at Jones Orchard in Millington on our way to go check the land and house at Millington.  It was hot but we had a great time picking peaches!  Both kids really got into it and didn’t want to stop.  All I could think while the basket got more and more full is 1) can’t wait to make peach cobbler; 2) I’ve got to find more peach recipes!  After working hard to find the best peaches in Memphis, we hit Chick-fil-A for lunch and ice cream!!

Visiting the land and house in Millington got us fired up about having a “camp out” so we spend the night out there this past weekend.  We really enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to a lifetime of memories spent out there…four wheelers, hunting, cook outs, and soy beans!

Let’s Go Swimming

Well, as some of you know, we got a pool last summer. Mind you it wasn’t in our back yard, but in the back yard of a house that we’ve been trying to flip. This is our first attempt at flipping a house. Let me tell you, it has been more of a flop. When we bought it last August, we got an absolute steal on it. It’s

a good thing too. Because we’re right at breaking even.

We’ve got friends that have said, “Even if you made a dollar, it is worth it. You’ve learned so much.” They’re right. We have learned a lot about flipping houses, house repair and pools. We’ve learned all about taxes and insurance. We’ve also learned that we won’t be doing this again any time soon.

The ONLY silver lining to this cloud (outside of not completely losing our shirts on the deal), is that the house has a pool. And it is in our neighborhood. So we’ve at least gotten to make some use of it. It’s been great watching the kids turn more and more into fish-like creatures. Haley’s still a little nervous around water, but as you can see from the pictures, Trey’s all in.

Trey had been jumping off the side without too much fear. I was in the pool and said, “Hey Trey – why don’t you go jump off the diving board to me.” Much to my surprise, he bee-lined it to the diving board, ran down it and flung himself off. I told Laura to grab the camera and asked him to do it again. Sure enough, we got the shot below.

We also managed to take sweet Avery for her first swim ever. She sported her little MSU Bulldog one piece. (she’s a little young for a two piece).

Now we’ve actually got a contract on this house. Lord willing, we’ll have it sold on August 30th. We’ll definitely miss having the pool that close, but sure as heck won’t miss the acid reflux holding on to this house has caused.
