Gabe is taking off the railing so we can get to diggin'.
And digging and digging and digging.
So this was a very SAD discovery when we took off the railing. Rot. An extra little step will be happening now that this has been discovered.
T is teaching the girls about this new tool. New to them at least. Such good learners!
We rented this big ol' machine to dig 8 holes at 30 inches each. It took some work and all the kids to get this done. I am so glad we had this handy dandy thing instead of Buffy, Jody and a shovel. That would have taken for-ever!
I made them stop and pose... I just had to!
A little playtime added in to the hard work. :) Oh sister love.
And yet another hole.
By the end of the day, we needed these holes cleaned out to make correct measurements. Well, shop vacs do all things.. even suck out holes.
And lastly, while digging all these holes we ran into our sprinkler lines. Well, we either delayed the project or re-did the lines. Re-doing the lines was a better choice. We only had the hole digger for four hours. Time was tickin' away.. tick, tick, tickin away. And yet another part to the project not planned.
