lots of pictures

Ok finally, the pictures & stuff! Lately it takes me forever to do anything =( But anyway... here goes nothing! (click pictures for a better look! these pics are very distorted in the small size!)

First off we've started a new tradition - if your here on or around your birthday then you get birthday spankings with our birthday paddle! This has been good fun for everyone =) Still haven't been able to get Darkside down for his but we will soon!





I got a new camera for my birthday from mom & Darkside - I'm in love! Can't really take a pic of it (well I could but c'mon!). But here's a pic of my cake =)

For mother's day I got some great new houseplants! All mine died in the move because of the lay over in the Quad cities. Here they are -

Ok now the new house =) Remember I said it had a small yard? Well here's the back yard, had to take this in the downstairs kitchen! See where the gravel ends? That's the end of the yard!

Here's the south side (north side is just about as big)

Here's a view of the southeast front yard, it drops down 3 feet to the road in the front

Here's the balcony that scares the crap out of me - it need fixed!

and the balcony supports that aren't right - needs fixed too!

alot of things are just cosmetic style things like this -

this is what cause the down stairs to be so cold I think?

and this is the worst of the ceiling damage under the drop down ceiling
(caused by the kitchen sink we think)
Photobucket

and here is the door we had to make so we can get between the 2 apartments
on the far side of this door is a 2 foot drop! this has been the most difficult thing to deal with

And at our lovely new house we have had some terrible weather. There was a F5 tornado that came through near here (the storm hit here before there) on May 25th and hit Parkersburg, Iowa. The town is damn near destroyed. See here's the map -

here's a picture I took about two weeks ago of a different storm coming in

Darkside has been complaining alot about being so hot and summer temps here haven't even began! Here's a real cute sweat spot he had the other day - (no I normally don't ooh & aah over sweat spots, this one is unusual!)


Photobucket

Since he was so hot and said he was DONE! with his hair we came up with this so he'll be cooler without cutting it all off -


Photobucket

He likes this alot =) Oh and we let #3 get a mohawk LOL! It's too funny!

Ok that's all, a complete update to today and I'll tell all about our new goodies we got tonight or soon.
