Kevin's Porch

"We are the half tan, half olive green dalmatian poke-a-dot house." That is how I described our house to a friend who was coming over as I gave her directions. I didn't process that until after it came out of my mouth. Yes, I live in the half tan, half olive green dalmatian poke-a-dot house.

This is what our house looked like when we bought it.

(Gavin in his pajamas)One night while I was at the gym, Kevin decided to rip the rock off the house. He also put a huge hole in the wall in the laundry room (another post). And... the birth of the olive green dalmatian poke-a-dot house!(Gavin's bedroom window Kevin put in)
This weekend Kevin built a porch fence. I think it looks awesome, he did a really good job. Once again, I am totally impressed with his handyman skills!
I think I need a nice Nag's Head Hammock for the front porch... or just a white rocking chair from Lowe's.

The finest compliment anyone could ever give you would be to say that you accomplished something Aaron Jones could never do. Congratulations.

I want to talk to you about Lakewood cuz we're considering moving there. Will you call me because I don't have your number in my phone anymore (thanks to the little guy who deleted all my contacts)...call me as soon as you get a chance.
