Weekend yardwork...

 While Wayne was mowing the lawn today, I decided our
driveway was badly in need of cleaning. Every year we power wash
the front porch and the back porch
(Chris did it for us this year)
but we usually skip a year
(or two) 
on the driveway because is huge and 
#2...It takes forever.
So this is the year to at least clean part of the driveway...
I actually love the power washer because even though
it is slow...
you get amazing results!!!
And I can soak up some vitamin D in the process!!!

I also like to make designs... 

 ...and get Wayne involved too!!!

 ......we hope to not see you next year!!!

Moving on...!!!

The sign on the back of the U-Haul truck is very applicable
to a recent graduate. But Chris has know for a few months that
he would be leaving Louisiana and moving on to Denver
where he will be working for Halliburton, an oil drilling

So after graduation yesterday we helped him to load the
 truck get ready to go...

They hooked his car up to the back of the truck...

...and he took off on his next great adventure!!!

I packed him a giant lunch, Wayne gave him a very 
awesome father's blessing and our advice to him
 was to not look back.....

So after a few tears and hugs...

...he drove off to start his new life for himself...

Best of luck, Chris, we are all rooting for you!!!
Love you tons!!!

We went to take pictures outside...
always a favorite part.

We also drove over to the McNeese campus and 
took a few more pictures.

Chris is now an official cowboy!!!
So happy for you Chris!!
