As a follow up to the previous post. Here is a picture of the unfinished railing that separates our back yard from the pool area. I think it is turning out really nice. (As part of Joe's birthday present to Daryl, he gave him a coupon for working in the backyard. Daryl collected on the coupon by having Joe help with this project and it turned out great - thanks Joe.) We plan on putting in archways at the top and hang baskets of flowers and little lanterns. I am so excited about all the hard work that Daryl has put into this. It is turning out beautiful.

Pool area and Halloween

This summer Daryl was very busy once again working on our back yard. He finished digging around the pool and putting in the wall. It is now ready for the deck. The railing separating the pool area from the back yard was also put in, but it is not quite finished yet. We are making a lot of progress and getting real excited about getting it done. It will probably take another 2 summers of hard work before it is done.

It was Halloween yesterday and the grandchildren that live close enough were able to come down to the Government Center and trick or treat. Here is a picture of them. Penn and Logan were dressed up like Thing 1 and Thing 2 from the story "The Cat in the Hat." Audrey was a cat. Alexis was a fairy princess. Not pictured is Drake who was a monkey. Drake wasn't too happy about wearing his custome. I had a blast showing off my grandchildren and I am pretty sure they had a blast going around to the different offices and getting candy.
