Caution Men at Work


Here was my view from my lounge chair in the yard on Sunday as Colby and Uncle Donny power washed our back fence. Next weekend Colby will stain it so it should match our sides pretty darn closely.








They also installed a back gate.





They were on a power washing spree that spanned the whole yard! They washed down the swing set, lawn chairs, bbq cover, bbq, and back deck! It was awesome to watch :)





While Colby and Uncle Donny worked outside. Dad S bbq'd up amazing ribs and garlic chicken for dinner. Mom S and Aunt Wendy helped me work in the nursery. Okay they worked and I directed from a chair. Pictures will be released once the room is complete :)
Colby and Uncle Donny weren't allowed to eat until they installed a new fan in our bedroom! YEAH! Last night we enjoyed the cool breeze immensely.


Poor Colby hasn't been able to catch a break from my insane "honey do list/nesting" Today he redid all the bark in the front gardens as well as hung up a new hanging basket. I think he is ready to go back to work.



Don't you agree the front garden looks excellent! Please don't look to closely at this picture as you might notice the hole in the front window. Freak lawn mowing accident... Luckily it didn't go through both panes or the cars or Colby!


Ah, but wait just one more thing! Latches on the back gate :)

I promise not to over work him this week or DSHS might come and take him away from me :)

Wow, you are right you guys did get a lot done this weekend! The fence looks amazing, fan is gorgeous and the beauty bark is just the topper for the gorgeous front yard. You are very lucky to have had the help of Mom and Dad "S" and Uncle Donnie and Aunt Wendy - glad to hear you stayed off your feet. Thanks for the update!

Everything looks wonderful! Can I have Colby for a week? Our place needs some serious TLC. I'm glad to hear you stayed off your feet too! We were worried about you...

Kim, how did you do that? If I make a list for Wes he will just smile and nod. Never gets anything done that I want.

Goodness! Very impressive. The yard and house look amazing! Can I hire Colby to work on our yard when we move? Love it! Great job to the both of you/
