Busy Weekend

Three birthday parties and lots of work outdoors kept us very busy this weekend. Ben and Beau were able to get the shed roof on and shingled, now I just have to paint the trim pieces and Ben will put them on. Then the shed is done and I don't have to think about it anymore. Ben and I got up early Saturday morning and poured a concrete sidewalk, nothing special, but keeps us out of the mud when it rains. The kids and I then planted three plants and a bunch of tiger lilies between the sidewalk and garage. We had a lot of fun even though it was a lot of work. Ben and I planted some raspberry bushes behind the shed, and we are hoping they survive. Our maple tree got planted in the back yard. I worry when the wind starts blowing and it begins bending but so far it is holding up. We are preparing for a garage sale and getting ready to pour the countertops, hopefully I will have a lot of pictures soon to show the updates around here.
On Sunday I was ready for some fun so we took the kids to see Up, I thought is was great, Luke was scared by some of the parts and Beau and Anna liked it. Ben was tired so he had a hard time staying awake, too much work.
Looking forward to more work and more fun around here as tomorrow is the first day of summer vacation. Too bad Ben doesn't get the summer off too.
