Linda's Trip - Day 8

Day 8 - Saturday - Demolition Day

We woke up bright and early today around 6:45. Carey and his bro headed out to get the "Ditch Witch"...
We ate an awesome breakfast that momma L cooked (Thanks Momma L) and the guys got started working when we were finished. My dad showed up early to help too! As most of you know, we have had a small flood problem in our back yard. Here are some pics of the last horrific downpour that we received.

Our sun room...
The pool nature made...
Swimming anyone...
The guys started first digging two trenches, one on either side of the house to put in french drains and about 90 feet of pipe...
Look at that ditch...

Once that was finished, it was time to deal with the backyard and the challenges that lay ahead with it.

Here is Bryan contemplating what to do with our crazy backyard...

This is the "Big Thing" that the guys loved driving...(Courtesy of Ryan H....Thanks!) They call it the Bob Cat but it is a New Holland so I guess I am confused as to what to call it...

When the guys were finished working, we all took a little rest and then headed over to my parent's house for a little swim to cool down and a home cooked meal. Mom cooked her yummy in my tummy fried potatoes and dad cooked hamburgers on the grill. We had a great time! Thanks mom and dad for cooking!

Thanks for all of your hard work today daddy!

Nighty night Brenton, Harley will protect you...Bryan is already zonked out...

God Bless You!
