Taking Shape!

Last night - the walls were up!
Hank and his cousin Max.
The trusses were delivered yesterday.
Garage trusses.

Guess where Hank is?
My tub was delivered today - I can't wait to make it's acquaintance!
A back view.
Another back view - where our Great Room will be.
Front view.
All the walls were up as of yesterday. We had lots of fun walking around and seeing where our rooms will be. Today most of the trusses went up, which really makes the house look so BIG. Now it's really getting exciting!

Building a Strong Foundation.

Foundation walls were poured last week.

Garage walls started going up yesterday.
This is the front porch (it needs fill dirt).
Hank enjoys checking out the site too!

Our house is finally taking shape.  Last week the foundation walls were poured.  This week the basement floor was poured and the first floor put down, and yesterday they started on the walls.  We love going over every night and seeing what has been done.

Another Beach Weekend.


Last weekend we went back to Ocean City.  We had fun going to the beach, the pool, and riding rides.
Hank could stay on the rides all night, if we let him.  He wants to keep on going, and not stop.  Our friends and their two little ones stayed with us a couple of nights.  Hank enjoyed having people his size around.

This past week Hank had some sort of bug, for a little over 24 hours.  He had a fever and a few episodes of getting sick, which is very unusual for him.  I ended up staying home with him on Wednesday, and by the end of the day he was his old playful self.

Our Little Sea Turtle!

This video was from last weekend, when Hank started to swim without having someone hold him. It looks so funny to see him bopping along the water, kicking his little legs.

I found something called a "puddle jumper" It's swimmies with a piece across the front that helps keep him afloat better, without someone having to constantly hold onto him. Of course we still stay right there with him:)

Hank loves the water. Currently he is swimming almost every day, as Brant's Mom is watching him for most of the summer.

We are so excited because they broke ground for our house today. Eventhough it was over 100 degrees today we had to take a ride over and see it! Hank loves riding the MoMo (four wheeler) , so he was very happy, until we got there and stopped the MoMo (you can see his pouty face in the top two photos). He soon got over it, after he found some dirt and sticks to play with.

Fourth of July.

We spent our Fourth of July swimming and eating. When we got home we actually could see some nice fireworks off in the distance. We are in for another HOT week and are preparing to go swimming again this afternoon. We are also going to celebrate Gramps Leroy's Birthday with steaks on the grill!
