Home from Vacation and Home Improvement

When we returned from vacation in Minnesota, Daddy had to travel for work.  Grammie and Grampie came up to Salem to visit for a day, and Grampie helped us out by working together with Alice to update some of the electrical outlets in our front room:
So many muscles on these two!:

We were annoyed but not surprised that our garage door finally broke a couple of days later.  We knew we were going to have to replace it soon as it had been on its last legs since we bought our home last year.  Here it is in all its glory!:
We knew Alice's birthday party was coming soon and we were planning to hold it in our backyard, so we knew we had some work to do.  We ordered a new garage door, and a GIANT pile of mulch, and got to work.

Here are the rest of the photos of our preparations ahead of Alice's upcoming birthday.

  1. Having a home is endless chores but always worth it. And such a good helper that you have.
