Back after a great Easter weekend. I hope you all were able to enjoy some time with your families and friends.
I guess we will just jump right into it here. Friday I was off of work for Good Friday, and we used the sunny warm weather to get some more of the cabin done. Remember, we have a goal to have it done enough to use by the last week of May. That is coming quick. We got up and headed to Lowes for supplies.
We picked up about half of the metal roofing we needed because that was all that they had. We also got the plywood for the roof.
Once we got to camp, and carried everything into the woods (awful) we got to work. We started by getting all of the plywood boards up and nailed into place. After that we started to add the painted metal roofing. Towards the end this is what we had:
You can see some light through the top there because we didn’t cap the top, as we don’t have all metal roofing yet. We had the rest ordered and should be here within the week. That took the whole day Friday and we were beat.
Saturday was a little bit more relaxing. We didn’t have anywhere to go, or anything we had to do. It was supposed to rain all day and only sprinkled for a short time. We decided to take the dog for a walk, and go feed the ducks again. It really was a nice day. We got some things done around the house. We saw our grass was getting high and we wanted to cut it. Small problem though, we didn’t have a mower lol! Back to Lowes we went. After getting a mower and some spray paint we were ready. It looked like rain when I was done setting up the mower, so that has to wait until today. I did however paint the portable fireplace with heat resistant paint, annnd this lovely rock in front of our house haha.
It wasn’t intended to be so bright, but what are you going to do! We may rough it up a bit and put our house number on it. It’ll get fixed up soon. The rest of the day was spent touching up some things in the new office space, and hanging out.
Sunday was the big day! Easter was here and we had a ton of stuff to do. We woke up early and headed to Erie, PA. We had to bring a few things to the baby store to return. In the process we ordered a few things for our baby with the money and gift cards we had. We were able to purchase our diapers bags, pack and play, and sheets. The book store was open so we ended up there for a while since we had an hour to kill before going to my aunts house. I ended up starting my Funko Pop collection as shown below:
I know it isn’t a great picture but it was after a long day haha, cut me some slack! I figured I’d start it with some old school cartoons. The Animaniacs, was where it was at. I got the three main characters, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. My wife got a book for the baby, kind of a fill in the blanks about how we met and came to be and then how we became three. It is a neat book, we filled some of it out late last evening. It was time to finally go to my aunts. We were there before everyone because we were already in town. We watched as everyone showed up one by one. When it was all said and done we had about 20 people there. The fun part is that we now have five kids under the age of five. We ate and then hid some eggs for the little kids. It was the first time in years that we had an Easter egg hunt, and it brought a ton of old memories back. Good ones. 😉 We had a few family pictures before we had to our next destination. Then we were gone.
We left my aunts and headed to my wife’s grandparent’ house for more food, and good company. We were both pretty full, so we didn’t over do it. We realized on the way over that this would be one of the last times that we will be traveling out there for a while, since we are having a baby. We are going to have people come to us more often. That will be a big change. My wife’s Uncle Mike was in town from Indiana, as well as her brother and sister. Our little nephew Carter was there too of course. We stayed there for about three hours, and played a dominos game. After we left my wife had to stop at the local ice cream place that just opened back up for the season. Finally it was time to turn right around and drive all the way home. We didn’t read the driveway until about 9pm and again we were beat. The weekend went fast and three days really felt like one!
As of today I may be taking my mini fridge back home to use in the office, which would be awesome. I could stock it full of goodies. I have to remember to mow the grass at our new house for the first time ever, and get the weed eater out too. It is hard getting back in the swing of things after a long weekend.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my weekend, if you did anything special let me know! I hope you all had great weekend. I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
