Home improvements

Last Friday C+J finished the outdoor shower. I was a bit annoyed because our date went down the drain since it ended up taking them hum......6 more hours then they expected. Bekah was good and kept saying how impressed she was because they had never done plumbing before. She's right, it was pretty impressive. It ended up being kind of fun trying to help them out. We needed to get water out of the pipes before they could fix a leak but they were having a hard time opening it up. So we all tried sucking the water out from the hose. That didn't work. Bekah was a bit smarter and got the shop-vac and sucked the water out. Buddy also came to the rescue and helped them finish it up. So now we have an outdoor shower. We also have a clothes line that actually works and the guys also took out the back gate so our yard looks a lot bigger. The pictures explain it better.

And we bought a new umbrella cover and are getting a new hammock. The old one has been so tangled from kiddy hammock ultimate wrestling that it is only comfortable if you are less than three feet tall or under forty pounds. Also,damaris was good enough not to mention that the original valves on the shower leaked, so we had to replace them and turn the water off for another afternoon.
Christian has also reorganized the shed and side yards so everything you can find whatever it is you're looking for. We put some shelves up in the shed so the climbing, scuba, camping gear is accessible. Next project is maybe making a seat for the collapsible sewing chair that we have been hanging onto for the last 35 years. Mahogany table anyone?
