I reek... and I love it

Seriously, I need to scrub out my bathtub. The past three days I have gotten so filthy that by the end of the day when I shower off, my bath water is brown. Now there is a lovely ring around the tub. Gotta love summer. No, really! I'm having the time of my life! While I hate being stinky when I actually sit still for a moment, while I'm out having fun, I love doing the kinds of things you need to do to get this level of dirty. Friday was spent at the river with the kids, then at the park for the entire afternoon. Saturday I spent painting the girls' room, sanding the BBQ grill and repainting it. With no AC going, by the end of the day, I was pretty rank. Today I did some more painting, more work on the grill and fired it up. So now I have a lovely patina of charcoal and smoke to add to my image. After I put the girls down, I'm going to go for a bike ride before showering off.

This next week is going to be another busy week. Swim lessons start tomorrow. Izzie and Maddie "practiced" putting their heads under water in the bathtub tonight. Izzie said she did it 10 times. Tuesday there is talk about going to the coast with some friends. That hasn't been finalized though. Wednesday is more swim lessons and then of course Thursday is the 4th of July. Friday I may not get out of bed. I think I might need a break by then! It's officially summer time in Vancouver and I'm LOVING it!
 Grilled potatoes and steak for dinner.

Finished sanding and painting the grill that my Father-in-Law, Tom gave John and I! It' so shiny and sparkly now. Still need to replace the wheels though. Oh and I probably should have taken down the overspray plastic before taking the pic....
