Chris's vacation

Chris was on vacation all last week. Anyone who lives around here knows why that is really sad. The weather has been horrendous!! He had the plan that he was going to build a patio off our back door. Even with the torrential rain he kept working. That part of the yard was FULL of tree roots and HUGE rocks. I'd say it took three solid days (and help from Mike on Friday) to get it completely dug out. That's HARD work.

The kids were obsessed with where daddy was the whole time he was out there. Madison spent most of the time watching out her bedroom window. Jackson watched a little but he was more wandering around the house. Since the weather was so bad we were stuck in the house.
During a brief break in the rain M&J went out to help Daddy pick up some rocks.

By Friday night he had the fabric laid down and the first course of the exterior wall. That rounded area is going to be a fire pit. Saturday he didn't work on it so he could be social with us on the fourth. Sunday is his last day of vacation and the plan is to have it done. Great job Christopher!
