Work Weekend at the Farm

On Friday night all of Dave's family came into town for a work weekend. The plan was to fence off a pond, but after a huge rainstorm Friday night, we changed our plans. Bright and early Saturday morning, we all convened at Grandma's house for a little "spring cleaning."

On the agenda was:
* Trim trees
* Trim bushes
* Clear walkways
* Build railing for porch
* Clean out shed and replace windows broken in hailstorm last year
* Put up clothesline



















It was fun to see everyone again! Thanks for all your hard work!

I LOVE your pics! It looks like a great family day. Isn't it fun to be together, outdoors, and getting something accomplished?

Thank you for your prayers tonight! We really appreciate it so very much. Thanks for taking care of Dad while Mom is here.

Hey Rachel, you did get the right Ott's. Jenn used to live out here before they were married. I'm glad she "bumped" into me on the internet. It's been a while since I heard from her.

Hey Rach!

Just had to let you know that we are on your blog a lot more recently as everytime we are even near the computer, Kate points to it and says, "Etan, Simon" and wants to see pictures on your blog! :)
Also, for the work weekend...It looked like everyone else was working! Ha, ha!

Love you,
Tanya

Tanya, um yes, I was on toddler duty that day. :) The weather was horrible anyway, so I didn't mind spending most of my time inside with the boys. I just ventured outside every once in awhile to photograph the members of the fam that actually COULD work. :)

Good to hear from you...miss you!
