Another improvement that has been a process for a long time has been the kitchen. We ripped out the nasty countertops from the previous owners and poured concrete countertops. With the help of a friend, we set them into place. Since then, we put up a tile backsplash, and last night, I put on 15 coats of sealer. Think that will be enough? I couldn't stop as it just got shinier and deeper. Here's what they look like.
Then, thanks to this awesome blogger and her husband's generosity in giving us most of the materials, Maglee, our boxer, has a new fence to run around in! Trevor, Jenn's brother, and Josh Woods helped me so much in actually installing it. We've been doing our best to still take Maglee on walks!
Early this morning, while being on Daddy Duty, I had enough time to hang our new fixture over our kitchen table. Out with the brass, please!!!
In addition to all the improvements, we've been having a lot of fun too! On Saturday, Jenn, Caffrey and I went to Stone Mountain for an afternoon of hiking and fun. I was a proud papa to be hiking up the mountain with Caff strapped to my chest as I listened to everyone make comments like, "Oh, look at those cute feet sticking out!" It was so breezy on top that we just snapped a pick and headed down.
Of course, every beautiful day has to have a picnic!
And lastly, Caffrey got his 3-month pictures a couple weeks ago. I chose my favorite to share with you.
