Tom and I headed out this morning about 9:30. First stop - Starbucks. While I'm not usually a morning coffee drinker, this morning I needed caffeine. My night hadn't been all that restful.
We joined Jill and the kids at the ball park, where Isaac's team had a good lead on the opposition.
At his next at bat, Isaac got a base hit! He took the rest of the bases on balls, and by the end of that inning, his team had a ten point lead, which means the game was called.
The team celebrated and then we got a head start on our project for the day.
We bought a shed for Jill, since they don't have the use of a garage at their rental. This was the day to put it together.
Tom unpacked the parts, and construction was underway. We needed Isaac, the expert Lego constructor, to help with the directions and construction. Tom had him using the electric drill to put most of the screws in place.
I was in charge of lunch. We had a picnic outside.
I was also in charge of getting the yard back in shape.
I took the hedge trimmer to the blackberries in the ditch, then tore into the shrubbery beginning to hide the windows. Getting all of that cleaned up, I mowed the grass.
Red faced, sweaty and tired, and happy to be done.
And at the same time the shed was declared done!
Tom put the tools in the van,
and then the crew posed for final photos.
Since then we've helped move stuff into the shed, Tom and I returned home, cleaned up, and went out for dinner. Now it's time to settle in our recliners in front of the TV and watch the Sounders soccer match being played in LA.
