Since the beginning of July, we’ve had visitors almost back-to-back, and thankfully, the majority have been welcome! My in-laws came down for the 4th, my mom was down for G man’s birthday, then my girlfriend came with her 3 munchkins and my mom and grandmother are back for S’ birthday. Busy, busy, busy! We’ve also had some unwelcome visitors… a mouse in the garage, a black widow in the yard, a wolf spider on the back porch, and two different types of wasps (paper wasps and mud dauber wasps). Luckily hubby’s handy with mouse traps and bug spray!

Any how, y’all probably don’t want to hear about my pest issues (please do come visit! I promise there won’t be any snakes… well, maybe there won’t be… 😉 )

Here are some photos and videos from the last month.
