Last week and this week we have been blessed with some beautiful weather. Last week we trekked out to St. Gabriel and River Road. We spent time last week painting out near Roberto's Restaurant. It was gorgeous. Plus, we ended our morning with a delicious lunch at Roberto's. Day well spent.

This week we moved down the road to St. Gabriel Catholic Church. Lucky for us we met up with the man mowing the grass who let us into the old church. We didn't think we could even go in there. He was very kind and we also found out that he is originally from Bosnia. These are some of the photos I took of the interior of the church.
We all agreed that painting the exterior of the church on this beautiful piece of land was the way to go. Here are photos of us out there this morning. We all agreed this was so much better than painting indoors on days like today. The plan is to get outside as much as possible while the temps are agreeable and the air isn't so thick you can chew it. Health benefit is that we get our much needed Vitamin D.
