Derby Cars & Kittens

My husband and two and half year old son went demolition derby car shopping yesterday. Interestingly enough they came home with one derby car and two kittens! It was so funny and I imagine that's what happens when you take a two year old along for the ride. So the kids spent the whole evening outside playing with the kittens. At one point they even had their blankets and pillows out there. They thought they could sleep outside with the new kitties, it was too cute!

Now it will be derby car madness season around our house. Every year from July to August our barn is full of men and derby cars. Different men and different derby cars all the time. My husband and several of his buddies do cars every year. They all end up at our house at one time or another because we have the biggest barn and the biggest variety of power tools and such. We live in the country, but our one close next door neighbor really loves this time of the year as she gets to hear people banging around at all hours of the night. I have little sympathy though because she is the neighbor that always has a problem with our animals. Thanks to her, our kitten from last year ended up inside her house never to return to the outdoor living.
So there are new projects at our house for everybody. Mine is preparing for the garage sale that I'm having at the end of next week. I can't wait to see how that goes. It's always nice to make a little extra money. Last year the garage sale at my mother-in-laws went very well for me. It even bought the children a whole new summer wardrobe.
Hope you are all enjoying the summer as we are at our house. It will fall and winter all too soon!
