Play Kitchen...Finale

We finished the play kitchen last weekend and it turned out pretty cute. At the end we were pretty tired and rushed a few things, but I'm still pretty pleased with it. I need to find a different color for the accessories because I hate the turquoise blue I grabbed. But, those don't need to be attached, so they can wait.

My mom bought the kids the cutest little tin play pots and pans and some play food too. She said they played with it the whole time we were gone.

Go to addicted to decorating to see more homemade projects from fellow bloggers.

Gabe and I spent last night in Prescott for much needed R&R. We walked the square where we bought some great hand made gifts. We also spent an hour just laying in the grass and reading. It was very peaceful. I think the 2 man flute band helped the mood.

Since I'm nice I used the photo where Gabe is smiling and I look exhausted     

This girl thinks she pretty darn cute...I have to agree.
and this boy is covered in mud and couldn't have been happier with himself.

Play Kitchen Part Deux

The play kitchen we're building (I've recruited my husband) is almost done. I can't wait for the babies to see it. After all the sweat we've put into it (literally), they better LOVE it! :)

It's so hot outside that we've only been able to work on it for an hour at a time before we're dehydrated and exhausted. I thought we'd be done this past Saturday but we didn't have the right hinges and we ran out of screws.

I wanted to use a more gender neutral color, but I already had a full can of the 'ballet slipper' pink and I didn't want to spend more than needed. The gray was left over from a table we refinished a few months ago.
I found a metallic spray paint for the oven door and loved it. I also found some knobs from our kitchen makeover to use instead of the wood pieces shown here. I didn't take updated photos yet because I was seriously delirious after sweating away 10lbs in the garage. I'm hoping we can finish this Friday since I have the day off.

I try to take the twins to my parents house every Sunday. This gives Gabe a quiet house to sleep in (he works the graveyard shift) and we get to spend time with the family. Last weekend we got there around 10am. It was well into the 90's if not hotter and my mom decided to fill up a bucket she had so they could splash around. Cooping them up all day is hard on everyone. Luckily, there was plenty of shade under their mulberry tree ( I think that's what it is?).  You can also see my dad's garden in the back ground:)
