What we were up to in April!

So my life has been somewhat taken over by wedding planning and this little old family blog has been somewhat neglected but I am determined to get it caught up one blog post at a time.  It is our family history after all.

So back to April.....
Our week in Instagram photos for the week of April 9th!

I made a purchase off of Craig's List for the wedding carnival.  On a whim I went onto Craig's List and just typed in vintage ice cream cart and something popped up!  This...

I decided it had possibility so I started texting with the guy selling it.  He had another interested party but if they didn't buy it he said it was ours.  Fortunately for me they didn't buy it so Jim and I headed over there.  We pulled in front of the house and Jim said "I know that guy, I work with him!"  They even sold it to us a little cheaper because they knew us - only $40.00 and now for a little paint to turn it into this....

Won't it be perfect for the Wedding Carnival!!

Friday night we headed out for a "cheap" date and decided to try a Mexican restaurant in Hillsboro.  

This was about as authentic as it gets.  The gal taking our order didn't speak very good English so we didn't quite get what we ordered but it was still good and cheap!

On Saturday our ward had a Day of Service at the Ronald McDonald House.  Jim was in charge of the yard crew all day and I was in charge of the kitchen crew in the morning.

Someone else had planned the menu but we made meatball sandwiches for everyone staying at the house for lunch.

It was a fun day and we are anxious to go back and help again!

We also attended a baseball game of our neighbor Declan.  Jim loves it and brings back lots of fun memories of when the boys played.

I love your ice cream cart! Love, love, love it! You made me look on Craigslist for a popcorn popping cart to go with my cotton candy machine... I really have no room for something like that, but it sure would be fun.
I am excited to see what you do for the wedding carnival.
Chauncey is combining his birthday party this year with 2 other friends who also turn 12 the same week. It is a carnival theme- so I look forward to getting lots of ideas from you!
