Building adventure

Rob has decided to add a cobble stone patio to our backyard. It is an area that is just a dirt patch with no water and the kids just roll around in the dirt. So this will become an area to put the kids play castle, and when we have company we will bring out the fire bowl and roast marshmallows around the campfire. We will post pictures on its progress and pray it turns out like we hope.

Oh, we almost forgot to tell you the cobble stones are made out of concrete. Rob pours concrete into a form that we bought and levels it out using a trowel. The form is called "walkmaker" you can do a Google search and find it.

It looks like it might be easy. Is it easy?

Getting the right consistency of concrete was the main issue I had. I would have likes to have another person working with me. My elbo and shoulder hurt from it but other than that it was easy. The finished product looks great. I will post pictures soon.
