Bathroom Destroyed!

Well, temporarily "destroyed"...

Our master bathroom is being renovated, and this is what it looks like after all the old walls and fixtures have been removed.

In its place they are installing new granite walls and floor for the shower and trim areas. So far they have the two big walls covered but there's a lot of work yet to be done, including the sink area which will be all new.

As soon as the dust settles I'll post a picture of the completed project.

A Day at the Beach...

video

On Sunday, April 17, we spent most of the day visiting daughter Carrie and her husband Kelly in Carlsbad. Along with their daughters, Chloe and Ava, we all headed over to the beach which is just a short drive from their home. Beautiful weather and we parked right next to the beach! What a great way to start off a new summer season.

Above, our little miss Ava tries on some cool "shades", while below daddy Kelly and grandma Robbin play in the sand with the girls.

Grab a brush and paint!

As you can see in the above photo, we're right in the middle of having the house painted. The upper floors in the photo are the "new" paint while the front of the garage is the original paint scheme.

Must say it looks a lot better. The beige with brown trim is much richer looking than that old "pinkish" hue we had.

Hopefully they'll be done with this job by Monday and we can get back to normal -- whatever that is! Or at least until the next project comes along :>)
