We've been a bit preoccupied recently

We haven't been keeping up with the blog lately.  One of the main reasons why is that we've been doing some remodeling at the house.  We had our cedar tree removed from our driveway as it was way too big for its spot.  Following that we had to have the driveway jackhammered up and replaced.  While we were at it we also took a couple tons of concrete off the back patio.  We also removed the old brick path around the side of the house and put in a new concrete block path.  To try to make up for the lost shade over the driveway we had a pergola built over the driveway.  I don't have pictures of the finished product, but we do have some sweet shots of our new swing pedestals from the logs.

Nathaniel got a new backpack recently and decided he wanted to go "backpacking". Today we honored his request today with a "backpacking" picnic and a hike at one of our favorite spots. Not a bad way to spend a sunny 70 degree spring day!

Nathaniel Skates

Nathaniel is taking to some of his sisters favorite activities. This past week he started skating all by himself just like his big sister. Luckily for him, he seems to enjoy falling on the ice which makes the whole process of learning to skate much easier.
