At the last minute the kids wanted to move our Mother's Day function to Fred's World. So we jumped up early this morning and starting cleaning up the place. After a couple of hours hard manual labor, we decided it was good enough for now. They all apologized of course, but we were just glad to be forced into working out there. It cleaned up really well at short notice. This first photo is an old military cot that I just threw a quilt on. Morgan enjoyed jumping on it!

Here's a shot of some old galvanized barrels Andy has loaded with bones, rocks, metal, etc. Can you pick out the armadillos, jackrabbit and lizzard?

How do you like the way I stacked the cactus plants in these old milk crates. Check out the rusty cactus on the table top.

Andy still picks up these old rusty metal chairs. He has quite an assortment now. He even found Morgan one at the Lampasas City Wide Sale. We just spread them around the entertainment area.

Instead of scrubbing down the picnic table, I threw an old quilt over the top and folded up a pair of chenille bedspreads over the benches.
We had a lovely afternoon all 20 or so of us. Great food and lots of yacking!

Happy Mother's Day Moms!

Sounds like a lot of fun, and what a good idea for the table and benches. It is so nice to have the family over. Sandi
