In order to re-side the back of our house, we had to rip up our deck. We didn't want to replace it because of the upkeep, thus we decided upon the "easy" task of building a new patio. Well, Steve was the builder. I made lemonade.
After getting everything built/propped/fixed - along came the dirt. Doesn't Jake look as if he is sizing up the job they're doing? He probably is.
The child who was allowed to help pack the dirt down.
My child was NOT barefoot while helping operate that large, powerful machine.
And next will come the "tontrete" (as Sammy calls it).
