I also had an evening with a dear friend at a local brewery & hotspot. What a delightful weekend trip!

Got the giant cement block that used to be under the steps we took off the deck moved to in front of the shed. Just one more of these to move when we take out the other set of steps. This was a project as the cement is really heavy! It's so much nicer to step out onto the cement pad than the always trampled grass that was there previously.

Aria loves it when we're outside with her and really loves any project that involves water. The hose is her favorite game.
We got the new steps built, put on the deck, and painted thanks to help from my dad and mom. They look amazing! Wow, what a difference it makes to step down on a path to the dog run instead of through the middle of the yard.
|Finished steps, what a difference!|
We've made lots of progress on the path down the side of the house as well. I think it looks rather amazing. Couldn't be happier with the way it's turning out. Only a little further to go. Hopefully we'll be done soon!
We have other projects in progress of course. For instance, our freezer is full of books. Books? Really? Yes, books. We were lucky to get several old books from my grandparents (some were their school books) awhile back and after doing some research into how to get mildew to stop growing and ways to help get the mildew smell out we settled on freezing them in bags with baking soda. So, round one in the freezer and we are starting to brush them out as we have time. We are excited to get them done and on the shelves in their respective homes!

We're also busily preparing for exciting summer events including my brother's wedding and dear friends having babies. Fun projects are in process here too, but details and pictures will have to wait until we're done ;) Very thrilled here to be heading into beautiful summer weather on the lake!
Next up outside: finishing the walk along the house and fixing the fence in the dog run so Aria stops jumping out.
