in the trenches

A bobcat operator brought all of his equipment on 1/17/09 and dug trenches for the footings of the addition. I kept telling the kids that the digger was coming and they were so excited. They had a pretty good view from the back door, but they wanted to be out in the action. Too bad they are not safe on a construction site. It was fun to watch the work being done and now the boys are having a great time playing in the trenches and on the pile of dirt the operator created.

In one side and out the other.

Seth made up some surfing moves as he slides down the side of the pile. It is very comical to watch him dance. He's got some serious moves. And the diaper makes it all the better!

Oh I am so excited for you. I can't wait to see the finished product. Too bad we aren't around to help. Damon would love to learn how to build.

I'm so behind in checking out anyone's blog. I feel like I'm missing everything! You've posted some really great pictures/family events lately! I'm SO glad you are adding on because this means we get to keep you! I don't know about Lance, but we have a really hard time hiring someone to do something we can do (and usually do better because we pay more attention to the details on our own home!) That will be one AWESOME add-on! I'm excited for you guys.
