Well, shiver me timbers!

With the unusual wet and windy storm we had last week, we were lucky to have everything still standing upright and no damage to structures. Living on a cul-de-sac does have its disadvantages: we get all the crap blown to our house from up the street. Oh well.

On Sunday, our tree came down... by chainsaw. With roots destroying the sprinklers and mow strips and also growing closer to the driveway, it was time for it to go. There must have been some prime bird property in that tree since we have an entire section of sidewalk COVERED with bird poop. It was gross and I hated seeing my kids run through it all the time. So poop no more!

Happy to get his work boots on, Donovan helped Daddy and his friend be lumberjacks for a few hours.

Dad is up a tree.

Reporting for duty!

In the thick of it.

Working hard.
