Memorial Day 2016

What a great weekend! We were at home, and Brooks basically turned the backyard to Disney World for the boys. He worked so hard, and maybe it is the pregnancy, but I am tired just thinking of everything he did!

Mimi and Papa bought the boys a playset, and it was delivered on Friday. It took the poor guy from 7:30 am to 9:00 pm to set it up! (Just thankful Brooks didn't have to set it up!) The boys realized what was going on about 5:00 pm and cried to get on it. So first thing Saturday morning, they were out there!

(My hydrangeas are back! And looking very patriotic I might add.)

This dirt you see was eventually covered by 2,000 lbs of rubber mulch that Brooks wheeled in. He also moved railroad ties around the set and hammered rebars into them. I can't believe I don't have a picture of the finished project.

Sister gave Woody Jake's old bicycle, and we Brooks worked with him on how to pedal correctly. He has a ways to go, but he gets an A for effort.

Brooks brought his skateboard out, and Woody ran and jumped on it. I couldn't believe it didn't shoot out from under him! What he lacks in pedal skills, he makes up for in balance.

What little brothers are for...

...until Peepers decided it was too hot for that nonsense and convinced Woody to switch roles.

We also purchased our new Alabama-style swimming pool. It is a stock tank...like you use for livestock. I have ordered a pool pump, and hope to (have Brooks) to install it this week. 

Exhausted. What a great weekend!
(Don't mind the half inflated pool in the background. It only lasted two weeks when you have a golden retriever who like to go in for a dip.)
