Weekend fun

Last weekend was a fun one for us. On Friday night, we went and watched out neighbor, Tony, play football. Of course Jamie was there, but Alex joined us! They cheered and had fun making noise for the home team. Looks like football games are going to be a part of our future...

On Sunday, Alex turned 3! Jana and Aaron hosted a birthday party at their house. Aaron just finished building the monster truck tree house. What a great structure! The kids just loved it. I was pretty impressed on how it all turned out. Alex got lots of Thomas the Train stuff and really enjoyed opening his presents. Ethan was right there "willing to help" Alex if he needed it. I am sure he is primed and ready for his birthday now.

Plumbing too?

Yes, we've had a huge undertaking with the remodel of our roof. We are still in the process of finishing it, so I'm not posting pictures until it's done. It does look 100% better than when we started, but we have several finishing touches that still need to happen.

So, a couple of weeks ago, Dan was curious why our water pump would randomly turn on when nothing was running in the house. As you know, curiousity killed the cat! Dan began digging around the water line and discovered a leak. Now another project begins. Luckily, this is a quick, one-day project where Dan replaced
the water line from the pumphouse all the way into the house. Of course, when Dan was done, Ethan wanted to "help" replace the dirt. I've included a couple of pictures of Ethan "helping" Dan at the end of the day.
