Visit from grampa & grama Foulger

This last week we were lucky to have my mom and dad come and stay with us. They came Sunday and left Friday and we were busy every day in between! It was kind of yucky weather the whole time they were here, but, on the bright side, it made for good painting weather. Ever since we moved into our house, I have wanted to take down the wallpaper boarder that's been downstairs and paint the light green bathroom. We attempted one weekend to remove the boarder, but stopped so the kids could nap...and well...we should have never stopped because we never finished! Once we got that down, we decided to paint the walls and ceiling. I've known that the ceilings weren't very white, but I had no idea my walls were so unwhite! It's amazing how much brighter and even how much bigger the basement feels with white walls and ceiling and no boarder! I love it! We just need to install new light fixtures and clean the carpet and we will be totally done! I've been holding offf decorating downstairs until we had it "fixed" so I'm excited to decorate!

We did manage to take some time to play while we had grampa & grama Foulger here...
We raked leaves and the boys played in them...
And we flew an airplane in the backyard!

One request my parents had was that while they were here was to go to the pumpkin patch, so we did that too but that's another post!
