Yesterday was a hot and sunny day so we went down to our house for a little clean-up and creek splashing. All the windows and the door are now in place as well as the porch.
This is the front of the house and the next step should be the siding which my parents a cream colored siding for. It will make the house look wonderful.
Alex and my dad started the clean-up by folding a tarp in the side yard. Looking at the house the windows are (from left to right) my parents bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining room and the one all the way to the right is the living room.
Alex posed for a picture while he was tarp folding. Usually he gives a more goofy grin for pictures but I guess he wasn't in the mood as he just wanted to go down to the creek.
This is the inside of the house. One of the reasons we went yesterday was to pick the spot for cable and phone lines in each room. The electrician wanted us to go through the rooms and decided where the cable would go and where the phone would go so he could put them in. After he does that the walls can start to go up and we'll be that much closer to moving in.
Ginger came with us for the day so when we were doing things outside we put her in the house so she wouldn't get loose. She enjoyed being able to go through the "walls" but she didn't like being left inside. We eventually took her down to the creek with us.
While down at the creek we explore up and down and the split. We wanted to explore more but couldn't with Ginger with us as she doesn't like to get too wet and most of the creek was too deep for her taste. She tries to avoid having her belly get wet and only likes to go wading. She ended up doing a lot of rock hopping. After we took her back to the house and went by ourselves to the creek.
When we did we had a contest to see who could be the master of getting wet. While the creek has some deep spots they only go up to my knees so the best way to get wet is to go dunking. We found a nice place, sat down, and put our heads under. Although you can't tell from the pictures, we were soaked and dripping all over the place. Alex really enjoyed it and wants to go it again sometime.
