Weekend Wrap-up

We started our long weekend by taking down our old shed on Friday. It was falling apart and leaking...plus a tree had fallen on it way back in the ice storm flattening the roof.
Saturday we got up early and started working on building the new shed. We bought a kit from Lowe's and it took the entire morning to get the base leveled. Inspector Diego can be seen checking things out and making sure there was no slacking.
By the end of the day, we had a floor, 4 walls and a roof. The roof was tricky as both Jorge and I are short but armed with a step stool, a ladder and the tall boys, we go it up there and somewhat flush and squared. We'll have to move things around before we put the shingles down but we got the bulk of the work done. Woo Hoo!!!
We got another early start on Sunday for our drive to Rochester, NY for the annual La Familia Softball game. I love that everyone is encouraged to play and there is some serious smack talking going on. The best was watching the 3 year old running around the bases after a "home run" and him throwing down his glove every time the ball didn't go his way LOL!
Can't leave out the fabulous fireworks show by the canal on the 4th before heading home today. We brought a cousin back with us and are officially a party of 5 with a little more estrogen in the house for the next 2 weeks! Don't worry if you don't hear from me...I'll be busy entertaining 3 teenagers :)
