The progress in the front yard is continuing. Mother's Day weekend Bob (Carrie's hubby) came over and helped us do some major demo. We rented a skidsteer and then he helped run it.
Here is a reminder of how the yard looked before we began... Notice the lack of big spruce trees?!?!?!
Bob did a great job and was quite skilled!
Brock and Dane had to climb in as well!
Doing a little "headscratching" as my dad would say! We wanted to get rid of the front porch... so the guys were talking about the best way to move it.
We really appreciated the help from the Sammons/Doty family that day! I'd like to say I was helpful, but I actually wasn't much help. Kimber was pretty sick (although she doesn't look like it in this next picture). We had to go to the Immediate Care Clinic both Saturday and Sunday. They did some blood tests, and ended up giving her some oral steroids to bring down the swelling in her throat and help her breathe. Ends up that she essentially has Mono. I have learned all a person can learn about Mono/Epstein Barr Virus! She seems to be feeling much better now, although she isn't quite 100% yet.
Poor girl was feeling pretty crummy!
