Kids, projects, and the great outdoors.

Noah loves his sister.

Both kids slept like champs last night. Noah woke up with a fever this morning and has been super cuddly. I can't say that I mind snuggling with him since the opportunity doesn't present itself much anymore. He laid down for a little while and just got up in a much better mood. Children are so resilient.

Dave is outside digging out the area where we are going to elongate the patio. We're adding another 7' section of concrete so that we have room for the new patio set. It's one of Dave's summer projects (along with pavers for the front bed and roofing the house). I'm totally fine with these projects, but I would still love to address the living room come fall. We have been talking about what we want to do there, but haven't reached any definite conclusions, so it has been put on hold while the outdoors beckon us. We try to do a little more each year out there as money allows. :-)

I forgot to tell you that I too LOVE the new patio set! It was quite comfy! :)

I think the extension will serve you well. My mom had Don do that a few years back, and it has really added some nice space to the patio area. Granted, they have a deck, too. My mom is spoiled...
