Weekend Rush

This afternoon Auntie Bonnie and Cousin Adam arrived from Miami, Florida.

They wanted to help us get the store ready.

I love my Cousin Adam. I have not seen him for a whole year, so we sat around and chatted for a while.

Then we all went to Applebee's for dinner. It is sorta like a tradition when they come to Ohio that we go there.

We sit and tell stories and have fun together. Then we usually go home and have some more fun.

But tonight we had work to do at the store. There is still so much to get done before our opening. While we were waiting for our table, Auntie Bonnie and my mom went to Pottery Barn to pick up the top for the desk that is going in the front corner. Adam started to put it together.
And the more he worked, the sleepier I got...

...until I just fell over to take a nap. I have been in the store helping every day this week and I am tired.

So I took a nap while Adam kept working.

Even TJ got into the action. He had to go find the drill set.

Pretty soon it was ready to flip over.

OMG!!! What is Matt doing????? He's 13. What can I say:)

Once all the work was done, I woke up. Adam said it was time to go home. We have to come back bright and early in the morning...

Congratulations on the store, it looks great! and also on meeting Kate Spain, how exciting! I am very jealous :) It's a shame I live in Australia otherwise I would have loved to be at the Grand opening.
Have a great weekend, Miranda.
