A fun day out and a special blessing!

Yesterday, I packed up the kiddos and headed out to the park to take advantage of the nice spring weather. We brought lunch and had a picnic, all the while being attacked by tons of flies (ewwwww....). They had plenty of time to get their energy out on the playground and swings.

We took some time to feed the ducks, too.....and the very hungry squirrels!

After a couple hours, we headed home for our special surprise. You see, we were having our old scratched up, mediocre looking countertops replaced with something much nicer! Here's our before....not bad, but nothing special, and very worn, though you can't tell in the picture.

Here's the after.....

Much better! A nite and day difference. We had wanted to put in granite tops for quite some time, but after pricing it out, it was waaaaaay beyond our price range! The alternative for us was to put in this new granite-looking formica that just came out. I have to say, it may not be granite, but it looks pretty darn close! And best of all, about a fifth of the price we would have paid. I can live with that!


  1. WOW!!! It looks amazing, I love it. I'm so happy for you. It really looks like the real deal. Enjoy it..
    Love ya, xo

  2. wow - that IS a big difference! replacing worn out stuff with brand new is always exciting!
