What a weekend...

Our little car is still parking across the street, but we are hoping tonight will be the last night, we are so so close to being done with the building phase of this brick retaining wall.

After helping the kids hang cement siding for 9 hours on Saturday, I can honestly say "no way!!!" will we be re-siding our home! Not even! Oh my goodness what a chore. The wall we did is a wall with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an oversized double garage...in case you are wondering...that is a loooooooong wall!!! At first I was glad there are five windows and a door on that wall UNTIL we had to jig around them. Anyway, this weekend their project was moved along as well as our project.

This morning Ed and I laid down landscape fabric and covered it with river rock......while the kids were laying a path of pavers around the new pond in their new court yard~Ed and Angela are dreaming up the landscaping plans. Then we all went for a hike. It was beautiful and after lunch everyone took the longer, steeper hike while Ed and I enjoyed some time to marvel at the beauty around us. I just can't help but to praise God when I am out in such beauty.

Wild columbine~~beautiful!!!

What a beautiful place for a hike! I love waterfalls. Your house looks wonderful. Are you planting flowers under the tree on the upper level, or more rock?

I just love the new look for your yard - much nicer that what you had before. I'm eager to see what you put in the planters.

Such a beautiful place for a hike - what I love about the western Cascade side of our northwest.
