Curb Appeal

I have been longing to build a roof over the front porch ever since we moved in.  But 4 kids is turning out to be a lot more time consuming than anticipated, LOL. Who would have thought?

But we finally got around to rebuilding the front steps.
Only took 10 months (well,it took that long to wait on some sunshine)

Obiously the railing is yet to be completed

And with the left over decking, I build a planter box.  I love free
And the shot from Google Maps... YIKES
So it's coming along... sloooowly but surely! I think next summer my rhodies will be the same size, (look at the difference in them in the Google Maps picture) And Redneck seems to think that it will be impossible to do a project as large as the front porch roof with 4 kids, so I have a contractor coming over today for a bid.  Breaks my heart. 

Oh well, it hasnt been all work

We went to see Thomas the Train

And lots of fun in the backyard
