July update

The wrap around deck has been started.  The girls are going to know an awful lot about construction by the time this is all over with! 

They really hustled to get some boards on the deck for the 4th of July.  They aren't nailed down, just set in place for now.

This next picture was taken as they're assembling some outdoor tables and chairs with less than a couple of hours before our company was due for the bbq and fireworks. 

Everyone was exhausted that evening but it didn't stop us from having a lot of fun.  We also celebrated Gracie's 13th birthday on the 4th and somehow she managed to squeeze in a few extra minutes to decorate her own cake.

We enjoyed a visit from our Italian daughter, Madi'soni.

We all enjoyed the fireworks display put on by Isaiah and Tanner and were thankful they didn't seem to mind entertaining a bunch of zombies.

Since then, Jeff and his good friend, JJ, have been working on the addition a couple of days a week.

They got two of the walls up last night which is so exciting.
The double windows will become the opening into the new part of the house.
I can't wait!
