Playing in the dirt

I think this might just be the adult version of playing in the sandbox. That said, all that "playing" has now gotten us a patio that's big enough for us to have the table on so we can eat outside! Particularly impressive given the 90+ degree heat we had this weekend, I think.
Abi helped, too.
And look what Geoff brought from the farmer's market! Black raspberries! (Because apparently, in his mind, providing back-breaking labor isn't enough). I'd gotten the blueberries this morning. So I ran back out to get some vanilla ice cream.
Seems like a pretty good way to top off a hot July weekend.

It's looking more like a patio everyday...

Rob has been working hard all weekend putting in the flagstone.
Here it is so far. He figures it's about 1/3 of the way done. It looks absolutely fabulous--we'll have the best patio in the neighborhood.
And a gratuitous picture of the butterfly bush by the side of the house, which seems to have enjoyed being abused by the contractors--it's never looked this good!
