Daily Owen & Bennett: 7.17.2016

More ripping up of the deck, plus some cousin time in between. 

The deeper we get in to the deck, the worse it gets. As with any house project...what you think is no big deal turns in to a little fix...a little fix turns in to a big fix...

Daily Owen & Bennett: 7.16.2016

So this happened today. 

I asked Justin to help me with some yard work. Be careful what you wish for. After some remedial tasks (weed eating, pruning), he decided to check out a deck board that's been bothering him. 

Found it to be totally rotted...which led to a trip to Home Depot for b and I at 6pm. 

New drill (because project = new tool) plus boards. Boards fell out 600 times. What a riot.

Later after some of the deck chaos: dessert. Which Bennett licked off the table.

Sweetest moment of the day.

Littlest monkey rock climbing. Then older brother had to follow. Somehow that seems backwards.

This little turkey woke up at 5am today...good thing he is cute. And a super hero. Clearly.

Bike riding tonight, including B who is bound and determined!

Daily Owen & Bennett: 7.4.2016

Woke up like this: 

Looks patriotic?! Happy Independence Day! 

Our day was low key. We were all tired from yesterday. So, we had lunch with Oliver and his gf (neither pictured:fail)....

Went on a 5 mile bike ride/run (in the rain)...

Did a little hiking...

And that's about it. 

Maybe we were being lazy or maybe we decided yesterday was sufficient, but we just laid low. The kids are at ages where it felt like fireworks could be hit or miss, so we just didn't push it. Plus it's not super warm out here this year, and they were already tired from, we called it. As I write this, it sounds like our house is being bombed and both kids are sound, good call this year. Next year, however, I think our oldest guy will so want to be out there, so we will oblige for probably the next many years. Happy 4th!
