Slowly but surely, we’ve actually been having a fairly nice spring here in Wisconsin.  We even found a few days to sit out and have dinner on the back patio…G-Money in his short-sleeves, swimming trunks, and Sponge Bob camp chair seemed to provide a nice slice of life I’m glad we got captured.  Momma had him laughing hysterically at her antics.

I may have mentioned that things have been very busy in the ShutterFamily household these past few months…is it almost May already?  One of the projects daddy was involved with was helping Great Uncle Dean get his web-presence established for his business:  JD Premier Construction.  We traveled to a few different sites to take some photographs of the projects his company has done, and put a website together to showcase their work.  Below are a few of the photographs we took, but they really don’t do justice to the level of craftsmanship and quality apparent in the work they do.  If you’re in the need for some general contracting work, make sure to visit

Here’s a garage JD converted into one of the coolest living spaces in all of Grafton.  Yes, you read that right, this used to be a garage.

A custom staircase built for a home on Lake Drive in Milwaukee.  Visit JD Premier to see photos of more of the work they did to completely remodel this home.

And finally, some photos of a custom kitchen JD renovated in Menomonee Falls.  They also did a complete bathroom remodel as well.

It has been a very busy few couple of months for G-Unit and his parents…and we have a lot of updates to share in the coming weeks.  But for now, we’re excited that spring is here and we have a summer-ful of nice weather to look forward to (which in Wisconsin, translates into about 4 months).

For now, we’ll leave you with a supersized, contemplative G for your enjoyment.

This past week, we continued our tradition of freaking out the G man by taking him to visit the odd-ball costumed character representative of the impending holiday.  In this case, of course, it was the Easter Bunny.  These photos were taken of G getting as close as he was going to get to the admittedly weird-looking looking bunny.  It didn’t help that he was also freaked out by the clown outside who was handing out balloons, requiring him to keep one eye on the bunny and one eye on the clown at all times.

He did have a bit more fun at the Menomonee Falls Easter Egg Hunt, scoring some good treats, and mini container of bubbles.
