To say the kids have been distracted this summer is an understatement! After we last visited in May, the baby boy arrived in June and things went from quiet to baby in no time flat. There was still some work done on the wet bar, but mostly it is ogling the little tyke as much as possible.
Last we left off on the wet bar we had gone from this:
Since then, bead board went up in the back, and it was painted the same color as the rest of the walls in the room. Then work began on the drawers as the base. The big guy and his dad put in a lot of time and energy getting them built. Once they were finished and stained, they looked like this:
And that is where the wet bar stands today… minus the tools and plastic. Shelves will be going up above the drawers soon… well, as soon as another project is completed. Yes, the kids finally got started on the peanut!
Peanut progress was slow to start, but one day Chad and his dad made short work of the existing plants. If you remember, we started with this:
The kids hope to reshape the peanut to an oval this weekend and get compost to prepare for planting. Finally! Cross your fingers things go quickly… fall weather is coming soon!
Nothing much has really changed except the wet bar and nursery, so we’ll skip the house tour this year… maybe next year there will be enough changes to warrant one!
Instead, here’s what those new parents have been staring at all summer…
I have to admit, he’s pretty cute and a good baby as far as I can tell. He certainly makes his parents happy (now if I could just get them back to work making me even more handsome)!
