Steve had a great idea to pour some concrete and build a bigger patio space for the backyard. It gets kind of muddy coming intot he house and the kids can't ride their scooters without running into eachother. So...
Digging for worms from our small sidewalk.
the boys Measuring and hammering the stakes down to size it up.
Diego watching Jose Demo the existing sidewalk
"that was fast!"
Steve ( with a little help from the boys and me) dug the space out about 4inches down. A lot more work than I thought!
Boys and Steve framing out the space
Ready for the concrete truck!!!!
Job checking out the hose truck
"Please let us help!"
Whoops! Came up a bit short. We had to block off the space with a 2X4 cause the truck ran out of concrete.
The kids putting their hand marks in the hardened cement. Job screamed his head off, not sure why, then Diego followed by example and screamed too.
Maggie happy as always
Round two: "Papa's truck is the concrete truck!" (Steve had to get a mini mixer to finish the job)
Diego digging up the front yard
Maggie watching the action from a safe distance
Wheel barrel loads to the backyard
and a day later...Whoo Hoo!!!! It's dry!!!!
The happy boys get to show off their stuff
