Painting, Sushi, Fishing - Enjoying Life

Wow...the past few weeks have gone by sooooo fast. We've had so many things keeping us busy, I didn't even realize it had been so long since our last blog entry. So, here is a quick update on what's been happening at our home.

Kerry and I are pretty open to various food types and every now and then when we eat out we'll choose a Tai, Japanese, or Chinese Restaurant. Kerry has had Sushi a few times while out to lunch or dinner with his business associates. However, I have never had the opportunity to try it. So, recently Kerry decided to take Logan and I out for dinner at a Sushi Restaurant. I was a little hesitant to try raw fish and it took forever for me to decide what to order since I wanted to know for sure what I was getting. With lots of great help from the waitress, I ordered my first sushi roll...and, it was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised at how great it was and decided I would for sure try sushi again. I'm sure it will take me another 15 minutes to decide what to order and lots of help from the waitress too. Logan wasn't too excited about dinner and he thought it looked funny. So, he munched down on noodles and steamed peas. Yummy. He did however LOVE playing with and trying to eat with the chopsticks. He insisted on bringing them home too. The waitress even brought out coloring crayons for him to draw with so he'd be entertained during dinner. Anyway, here are a few pictures from our dinner out at the Sushi Restaurant.

We moved into our new home in May of last year and we are the original owners, and so luckily we didn't have to do any remodeling or fix anything before we moved in. However, the builders chose to put carpet in our formal dining room and anyone with children knows that carpet, food, and kids don't really go so well together. So, we decided to rip out the carpet and put down a laminate wood floor that matches our kitchen. I didn't even take into consideration that before we could lay down the new floor, we'd have to take all of the baseboards off too. Needless to say, the project was a little more time consuming than originally planned. I'm sure Kerry knew that was an important step in the process, but it hadn't even crossed my mind. Once we had the new floor in, we thought if we're going to paint, we should probably do that before we put the baseboards back on. So, off to the paint store we went and now we've been busy painting as well. Since we were already in the painting mode and had finished the dining room, we thought we'd paint a little in the kitchen and family room too. 1 1/2 weeks later, we're almost done with everything. We'll put the baseboards back on this Saturday and then we should be finished. YEAH!!! Overall, it was kind of a big project, but it will be nice to enjoy it when its finished. And, I am so excited that we can now eat in our formal dining room. Hmmm...now I just need to go shopping for a bigger table since we have so much more room. We'll have to post pictures of the new changes when we're all done.

Even though we've been busy making a few changes in the house, Kerry and Logan took time out on Saturday to go fishing for the first time this year. The weather was finally warm enough to be outside for a little while. They didn't have any luck catching anything and Logan lost a few hooks, but they had a great time. Logan called and invited grandpa to come fishing too. Here are the 3 fisherman.
