Hard at work

We have been hard at work the last few days trying to get things done before the end of the long weekend…here are a few things we’ve accomplished:

– Finished laying our new brick patio (Dave)
– Prepared new vegetable bed for end of season harvest (Me)
– Potty trained Coen (Coen)
– Skyped with Auntie Mandi (Me and Coen)
– Barbecued with the folks (Geyerses and Larsens)
– Relandscaped yard (removed old grass, weeds, rocks, then put in border with shredded bark and lined border) (Dave, Dave, Dave, Dave, with a little Me thrown in there)
– Seeded new grass (Dave)
– Ate waaay too much fast food (All)
– Planted new container garden (Kirsten)
– Cleaned car (Kirsten)
– Drove parent’s crazy (Coen – in his defense, mainly because we spent most of our time ignoring the poor kid to get all this other crap done)
– Finally returned Netflicks movie that I’ve had for 2 months and never actually watched (Me)
– Spent loads of $$$ on “stuff” (Me and Dave)
– Other miscellaneous things (grocery shopping, paying bills, laundry, laundry, laundry, etc.) (All)

Not bad…phew…I’m tired just thinking about it. Dave is STILL outside working away…covering the baby seeds with STINKY peat moss. GO DAVE!

We did have some time for fun moments too…here are some pics of a game of football we had earlier today. Coen loves to catch the ball and then throw himself on the ground like the “real” players do. Hope you all had a fun weekend…and don’t feel bad if you weren’t as productive as we were…I’m pretty sure we are super-human (or at least Dave is).

    Well, sometimes the holiday weekends do provide a needed time to take care of things at home. 🙂 Cute football pics. Nothing like a little dirt to have fun in.

    Hey! Thanks for your comment over at my place yesterday. What a small world – I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks as well! Your little man is adorable…I’ll be watching for his name as a big time player one day. 😉

    You guys have been BUSY! Can’t wait to hear more about your lovely yard. Love the football shots….Derick still doesn’t catch a ball well. But, he’ll get there. I figure they have a few years before the recruiters are lurking, right?
