Productive Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

This weekend, in my opinion was great! I had a real blast. Saturday I waited until about 11am, when the weather was starting to get nice and decided to tackle the garage project. I desperately wanted to get this looking better. As you may recall I bought 8 sheets of plywood from Lowes and was just waiting for a decent day. Here are two before pictures from the left and right sides respectively.

I was able to use all 8 sheets with some leftovers that just didn’t fit anywhere, so I was right on when guessing how much I would need. It took me about 7 solid hours to get it all done by myself. Let me tell you, it isn’t fun lifting an 8 foot long sheet of plywood 4 feet alone, while climbing a step ladder. It was rewarding to see it all up though. (and organized)

There were a few hard spots when I had quite a few cutouts and some difficulty trying not to pinch the wires for the garage door, but over all I’m very satisfied.

Everett and my wife came out to see me a couple times and see the progress, but he was trying to eat rocks, sooooo he went back inside haha.

Sunday I was going to keep the ball rolling. I wanted to go get paint for the fence and start it. That was quickly changed as I got word that we were going to have some hitting practice for softball this summer. I still wanted to get paint so I headed back to Lowes and got 5 gallons of close matching paint. I brought a piece that was the color I wanted and they tried a color match. It turned out a little more brown than red, but it is pretty close.

I got home just in time to turn around and go hit some balls. For the next two hours I got in some much needed practice, and got all the kinks out. Hopefully I’ll be ready for the opening season tourny on the 5th and 6th.

Since I had been doing a bunch of stuff on my own, we decided to go take some pictures of Everett with mommy, to get some much needed quality time with my family. We headed to aΒ  local park and I took some pictures of the two of them. They aren’t edited so I don’t have any to show you, but I do have a couple cell phone pictures behind the scenes haha.

On the way home I was driving behind this guy and this really neat car. I have seen it around town quite a bit and made my wife get a picture. If you look in the top left of this picture you can see it was a nice day.

If you weren’t aware my little boy hit the 11 month old mark Sunday as well. He is a growing boy now. We also saw the first sign of a real tooth on Sunday too!! It looked like a piece of food on his gum and upon further inspection it was a real tooth! I’m not sure we are ready for our boy to have a toothy smile haha.

That is all from me today. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, I know I did! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
