A good kind of exhaustion...

It is hard to complain about being so overly tired, when the past several days have been so much fun! Just a quick update in the Morris home for ya. Last week was the last of MOPS for the year. That was a great time spent every other Monday with other Christian Moms talking and sharing stories. I look forward to it next year! Wednesday, the boys and I headed down to NC to visit our friend and their brand new baby Daisy Love. I was so excited and so pumped to see them that the drive went real quick. The weather was incredibly hot so the boys were stuck inside and I didn't bring enough toys so they were a little more needy than usual. However, I got to see my girlfriend and her baby...took some great pictures, talked mommyhood, photography, spouses, etc....Just good old fashioned girl talk!
Friday we took the trek home and dove right into our brick laying for our 29 foot planter. The first row was the toughest because we had to adjust the mortar to make sure it would be even-steven all the way around. We finished around 11pm by flashlight and headlights from the truck. Got up early the next morning, filled up the kiddie pool (for the boys) and went back out to lay some more. This time it went faster, but our time was cut short by a wedding ceremony in the afternoon.
This was actually quite fun! We didn't know we were going till a few days before and we had to take the boys to the ceremony in the afternoon because we couldn't afford a sitter all day and night. The ceremony was very cute and romantic because it was actually a Re-affirmation of Vows; they got married 5 years earlier but never had the wedding till now (military friends). So it was very endearing. The reception was fun and had a great time dancing to some old school songs with Mike. Definitely didn't expect such a wonderful evening and date with the Hubs, but I was so grateful for it!
Today after church we tackled the planter yet again and finished! YEAH!....wait...not quite. We did get all the bricks laid, but there are no plants, soil, flowers, veggies, etc. We are budgeting this very carefully so we will be doing that all next month. We also have to top the bricks with something since they have holes in them. Mike thought of something great: to mortar down some mosaic tile around the top. How creative! By the way, this whole planter thing was Mike's idea and I say again how amazed I am of his many talents! He just went for this like it was his job and he does it every day, and I am so impressed with how it turned out! So even and clean! Anyways, I will be getting pictures of it up soon, so look for that!
Oh yeah, I finished the weekend off with a full grocery shop...thank God I didn't have the kiddos with me...

So this is a good kind of exhaustion I have...where I can barely see straight down the grocery isles and mix up canned vegetables with canned fruit...I am very grateful and happy with how great these past several days have been! Thank you Jesus!

Hope you feel refreshed after a couple good nights rest and naps!! The pictures are cute:). Like how both Austin and Logan are squating in the same way.
