So for you that have never built a wood fence, stick with vinyl, you'll never regret it. We feel like the last 2 months of our life has been busting our butts on getting our fence built. Holy cow. Anyway, we're finally to the point that it's starting to pay off and we're finishing up with some sections and it really turned out great. So here are some of the pics and some other things going on in the midst of fence building....
So, this shows what our kids have been up to while we're butt busting. Here you can see the posts up, which means Teeny and I have already dug the holes, mixed the cement and lugged the post into place.
After we set the posts, we did the top rail. This was probably only the third time I tried to set this rail. It seems like it took at least 3 to get some of them right. Gud thing i's S-M-R-T!
Our neighbors had their grand daughter over, Autumn, of whom A fell in love with. She was there over the weekend and A couldn't get enough of her. This is them sleeping on the slip and slide.
Our neighbors, the Glens, helping the work go along....slow and steady, but mostly slow.
So, this pic shows going up the slope and we're done with most of the rails. The rails took for friggin' ever.....seriously.
And now for the finished product. Not too shabby! We actually really love the way it turned out!
Teeny got together with her friends Larry, Zippa, and Tiff and their kids to see who could lose their kids first. Luckily it was a tie, and nobody was lost at the Thanksgiving Point Farm Country.
T and no hands on a horse.
P-man and N in the winder...
Larry and her kid Mads with A and the Harses....
N goofing around with his hat. I think he knows how funny he really is.
T reachin for a spin.
"So, N, where too?"
This is the Henlines. Mitch, the one who looks like a missionary, left for his mission to Barbados (Puerto Rico East Mission) where he will test and report on several different types of sunblock and surfing techniques for two years.
The Jensen Fam. What a happy lot.
This is Beck proving that you're never too old to lick the frosting off your Lightning McQueen birthday candle! Happy B-day Ma!
The fam came down to celebrate. In this pic we have my brother Jesse (sitting down) the doctor, really, and to the left (standing up) is Nate the bishop, just called.
N apparently tried to snort his brownie.
We might also call this the summer of the zim-zam. Teeny loves to bust it out. Her and Lindy-Lou having at it.
Jess and Lindy zim-zamming. This is also a good pic of the fence behind them. We finished most of these sections a couple nights ago. Pics to be posted later.
