You Asked for Pictures, I Give You Pictures

OK, you have spoken. And, yes, I will tell the Rachel Ray story. At some point. πŸ™‚

First, some pictures, which should update you on a few things that have been going on here lately.

Without further adieu, let’s get to it:

So Erin got her hair cut. This was a couple months ago. I know, I know. Her bangs are ready for another trim already!

Henry obviously thought she looked pretty good.

And while Erin and Henry were making nice, Aidan was getting to know his friend, Will.

Ah, yes. The basement. This is the outside, obviously. But the water, should it come, needs to go somewhere. Better in the yard than in the TV room.

Inside the house. That gray pipe was put down all around the inside of the foundation after they jackhammered a trench that created, oh, I don’t know, six million pounds of dust.

Same vantage point, only this time showing theh cement they then put back in the floor. Of course, keep in mind that we now basically have to redo the finished room, because what you see on the right, that’s two feet of the paneling and sheetrock that had to be removed.

I know it’s not pretty, but the water has to get out of the house, and that’s what you see here. The pipes (and the down spout) are going into one underground pipe that goes in the trench in the first picture. And that other hideous thing? Radon fan.

So our town has this thing called Touch A Truck Day. This is Aidan at the controls of an excavator. Something about the glare in the picture actually makes me like it more. And, of course, there’s his smile.

Erin discovered that as long as she’s with Mom, this slide thing can be pretty fun!

Erin’s first parade (Memorial Day) was a huge success!

Aidan loved the parade, too!

Excuse the quality of the photo, but that’s Aidan waving to the crowd after being presented with his ‘diploma’ from the three-year-old program at his nursery school!

So, as you can see, a lot has been going on.

I’m going to make you a promise this week, however. I will be posting every day. I owe it to you.

And, quite honestly, it’s going to be an emotional week or so. Erin’s turns 1 on Tuesday the 10th and then it’ll be a rough time remembering my brother, Tim. Bear with me.

And thanks for sticking by me. I appreciate it.

What else? I got nothin’.

    Okay, if you tell the Rachael Ray story, then I want in on the action! I was there, too, and I think I have a slightly different opinion on the situation. πŸ˜‰
