All Decked Out

As promised, here are the pictures of the deck that J.D. built this summer. Of course no project is complete around here unless the boys add their touch to it.

Seth put in about 20 minutes and decided that he was "tired". He came in for a drink, a little TV and of course a litle cat nap.

I think what really tired him out more than anything else was having his big brother for a foreman.

Riley takes his work quite seriously and will work until he drops. He has been that way since he was big enough to pick a hammer up and carry it around with him.

After putting in his day's work he told his Papaw not to do any more work on the deck until he can come back to help him.

I am very proud of all the work J.D. has put into our ridge top home. He even built an Adirondack chair that I found the pattern for online.

As I look around here at all of the improvements J.D. has made to our home in the 5 years we have lived here, I can't help but wonder if he realizes how very much I appreciate him and everything that he does.

I have told him how much appreciate him, but still I wonder. I trully have been blessed to share my life with J.D.

I think all that is needed now is a bottle of wine (coffee if you prefer) and a fire in the fire pit that kids gave J.D. for his birthday. If you happen to be in the neighborhood stop by and join us.
Blessing to you all !

Oh, Jo, the deck looks fabulous and how I wish I could stop by and join you on there:-) JD really did a terrific job with it and I see from his comment that you helped quite a lot too so good job to both of you!!! As for the boys helping, that's so precious, no doubt they will always look at that deck and say that they helped papaw build it:-) xoxo
