New Fence

Remember that nasty storm that blew through DFW last Wednesday? Well I was driving in it to a clients house, and Seth and the boys were hunkered down in our bathroom with the crib mattress's. Well after it was all said and down, our poor fence had lost the battle with it. You see, our yard backs up to a BIG open field, and when a storm comes through, we have nothing to shield us from the wind, so our fence gets the blunt force of it. The fence was original to the house, and we have had to replace a few wood posts in the past, but this time we decided to go ahead and do metal posts. Something we should have done a while back. When we started to tear down the orginal broken section, my Dad pointed out to Seth that the other posts were rotting out at the bottom. SO out with the entire back fence! Seth made another run to Home Depot to get some more supplies. Now that it is all said and done, we love it! I plan on staining it next week. I can't wait to have it all done.

Papa brought Ethan his own glove

Hat: check Gloves: check
Let's start unloading
Get a good hold on it

walk it over to the piles
Almost there
He did this until all the wood was out of the van, about 142 planks! We did help, but he did a lot on his own!

This is as far as we got the first day...
Ethan was WORN out after helping us out all day
All done! Just waiting for stain!
