This shows three projects underway: Kelly is scraping the paint off the side door and garage door. I power sprayed the garage door also and it is a long process. Pam and I got an LED replacement light over the garage which she was putting up. She finished that project quickly. The rest will take a while.
I also power-washed the boat house and started with the back side. It was a pretty nasty effort but it was a good start to getting the old paint off before we repair boards and put a new coat of paint on it.
I like mowing the lawn and it is a good way to get a workout!
In fact, we usually find ourselves outside in the back yard or down by the lake most days.
Last evening Jon, Pam and I took the boys out for a little excursion that lasted about 15-20 minutes. Uncle Mike gave Jon a trolling motor that has replaced the oars so it is easier on all of us. Kelly stayed behind as we pulled away Kelly had cast off from the shore and was fishing. Seeing that, Jon mentioned, "She gets prettier every day..." 😊 Jon managed to drop the hook a few times along the shore of the lake, but didn't snag one. As we were pulling in, Kelly said she caught one that got tangled up in the trees and weeds near shore as she was reeling him in. He put up a fight until he broke free. Kelly was pretty relieved since she hadn't figured out how she was going to release him with out grabbing the slimy thing...
We've been here in VB a few weeks now. It has not all been work work work. Jon had a birthday
and Kelly had a surprise birthday party for Jon. He was truly surprised because it also dubbed as a Cinco de Mayo party that was 10 days before the real birthday. Jon and the guys went on a short overnight camping trip and 30 or so guests were waiting went for him when we pulled into the driveway.
Everyone stayed for a few hours and we all had a good time.
