Although I don't think it will hold together through the night... it was fun to decorate. The roof keeps sliding down...

Debbie and Pauline have been "getting to know" a mare named Reilly. They may buy her... but are right now helping groom and feed her. Yesterday Lauren went to Athens for some cousin time... and got to go for a ride! When we were packing, she's the one who told me that we should pack her bike helmet. She's so smart--I probably wouldn't have thought of that.

Ta-da! After painting the plywood and strategically placing some wooden shims for levelling purposes, we're calling finish line on this project. Except for my thumb, this has been a fairly painless way to save $400. Now, to get to that two-week old stack of laundry!
Here is a link to the Youtube that showed the way.
I made mine slightly different: Instead of 17" tall mine are only 12", and since at that height it's too small to put your laundry baskets underneath, I went ahead and put plywood on the front face. I would recommend larger nails for the plywood, he is using 1 1/4" finishing nails, I would say go to 1 1/2".

We had a great time at Lake Chautauqua in Western NY. I realized after I got home that 90% of the pictures I took were of my own children, whom I see every day. Next year, only pictures of non-immediate family members!
Here is a link to the photo album.

A most miraculous event is happening in Columbus' North end this afternoon. Local toddler Trevor Long is eating his ham and cheese sanwich as a sandwich, and is not picking the cheese off and ignoring the rest. Is it the bun? Is it the brief trip into the broiler the sandwich made? Local father-of-the-year candidate Mr. Long isn't telling.

Lauren and Trevor really enjoyed playing outside when the rain broke. Trevor got so muddy that he went shirtless for an hour or more because we didn't have a better solution. Redneck parenting at it's finest.
Trevor spent 20 minutes chasing this little dog around the kitchen/living room loop. He way loved that little dog. It would run, then get tired of it all and Trevor would just catch it and put his hand on the dog's back, until the dog decided to run again. Rinse, repeat.
Dave won the $10 cup, which paid a cool $200 for the Derby. Nice!

The next day he demanded that we go back to the farm. Lauren was bummed to miss the fun, but she was in school. We'll have to return again soon.
