Home Improvement

We tackled the deck, replacing both the upper and lower decks. We also removed one set of stairs. This picture only shows the completion of half of the upper deck. The lower deck has also been replaced, but not the upper deck on the left. We're saving that for later.

Thank goodness Ira has a tractor that made the job easier.

With the help of our good friend, Ira Hickman, we tore out the grass on the south side of the house, poured concrete, and built a new fence. (The hardest part was removing the tree stump.) Now we can store our boats, RV, and/or trailer at our house. We also have an extra place to park a car in the driveway so now we can fit three cars.

Chase's 13th Birthday

Chase had a swimming birthday party for his 13th and of course, there were more girls present than boys! You go, Chase!
