Oh by the way, they just started the actual construction on Thursday as the weather did not cooperate all winter long!
The crawlspace dug and blocked in. My climbing rose bush in the jack-o-lantern bucket and the location of our old patio.
The temporary new location of my old patio.
And in other news... We just completed the AWANA Grand Prix! What a great turnout and the kids seemed to have such a great time. They were supportive of each other no matter the outcome of the races. I won't be including any pictures of the kids as I do NOT have the express permission of the other parents to post pictures of their children but here are some of the cars, to include a few "novelty" cars.
Don't you love the monarch butterfly caterpillar car and the ladybug car?
And the mustache car? Trust me it really does look like one when you look at it straight on! Absolutely hilarious!
(our youngest the day prior to getting his braces)
(and his car for which he won 2nd place for best race car design.. it really does look like an Indy car in real life! It was his first year to race!) A great time was had by all!! I am so glad we were able to help out this year. Not only were the kids so much fun to watch but so were the parents (I'm tellin' ya some of the parents were more into it than the kids! lol)
Oh if I haven't said it before, I am saying it NOW. Any and all ideas for flooring, paint, wall treatments, etc will be gratefully accepted, links will be more than welcome as well!
Hope you have a great week! We will as we get to sleep in. ITS SPRING BREAK!! Woo hoo!
