Renaissance Festival 2009

So anyone who knows Brent and I, knows that we LOVE Renfest! We go every year and it's such a blast. Last year was a little different going with a 2-month old, very colicky baby, but this year has been a blast so far. Nate has a lot of fun when we go. And why wouldn't he??? It means he gets to outside, dance to live music and run around and get dirty! He's also getting to meet all our "Rennie" friends that we only get to see once or twice a year. So I promised some Renaissance Festival pictures and they will follow this post.

On another note, things with the new house are moving along--SLOWLY! We were hoping to close next Friday and move in over the weekend, but it looks like we may have to push it back a week. Apparently things are moving very slowly with lenders and things that used to take 48 hours are now taking almost a week. We're very anxious to move into our new home and get settled in. But in the meantime, we happened to get a great deal on a pool fence! Brent and I knew that a pool fence was our #1 priority for the new house. NO way Nate is going to be running around in that patio without a fence around the pool. So I started researching. Even the do-it-yourself fences were going to run us about $650 for the 46 feet of fence we need. That is way more than we wanted to spend, so I started stalking Craigslist. I saw an ad for a huge yard sale going on yesterday not too far from where our new house is and one of the things they had listed was a pool fence. I had no idea how big it was or how much they wanted for it, but I figured it was worth a look. Guess what??? We ended up getting close to 90 ft of fence for $150! And it's in great shape! It was a little dirty, but Brent washed it and it's all ready to be installed! And Nate had a blast "helping" Daddy wash the fence, LOL! I've got some video of that too. Enjoy!
