Working on the View and a Party

On Saturday Rob decided he wanted to see the beautiful view out our back yard through the kitchen window. So, we started a little project...

Here is Cosette helping to knock down the side of the awning. She is a hard worker.

Part one is complete...the side is OFF

After disconnecting the sides it obliged and fell. Disassembly was much easier on the ground.

The next part was much more difficult in that we had a spa under it so we had to disassemble it while it was still up on the air. Thank goodness for skill saws.

Here is Ethan getting into the action. He knew exactly what to do with the hammer.

Here is the finished product from the outside looking in. Obviously more sun which is not a bad thing.

This is now our view from the kitchen window as opposed to just being able to see the spa and our own grass. Now we can see all the way to the foothills.

We also chose to celebrate one of Ethans birthday party's on Sunday so here is his first cake. The smaller one is the one he gets to eat all by himslef and the bigger one is for everyone else. Great Job Emma.

All in All it was a very nice weekend.
