Our new patio

Well, perhaps you can use your imagination just a bit...

Rob took a week off while I was away to start digging up the backyard to put in a patio. He did most of what you see above, and all of what you see below. This weekend we finished the digging and most of the gravel. The next steps are to put in a bit more gravel, put in stone dust, then put in the flagstones. But that will have to wait for next weekend because at the moment we're both too sore to move.
All the dirt that was dug up had to go somewhere. Look who's Queen of the Mountain.

Wow, can't wait to see it finished when we come down on the 18th of August. Tim went to Triple A to get travel info and looked online for hotels. Kids are looking forward to coming down. Tyler wants to spend time at the National Spy Museum.
