Painting the Tower

Yesterday Ethan refused to nap for some reason, and since I really needed one, the result was a mommy on the edge of an emotional breakdown. Thankfully, in spite of a rough morning babysitting, today was not a repeat. We napped and I was much happier. I didn't paint during the day as I had planned, but after Terral got home we all spent some time outside together.

Terral painted up on the tower. It looks so much better now! I don't have "after" pictures yet because we worked until there wasn't light anymore.
 I worked on the bottom of the tower. I had to dig away dirt that had built up to the wood and clear away plants that were growing up and into the siding. And of course I cleared away garbage. There always seems to be more garbage to uncover.

There has been quite a bit of water damage here. We have a new piece of wood ready to replace the old one, but we have some more prep work to do first.
 I also did detail painting around our windows and a few other random spots.

Ethan was reluctant to play by himself at first, but once he got going he seemed to have a blast. He found some leaves in the driveway and spent a really long time digging them up with his backhoe.

I couldn't believe how pleasant the weather was all evening. We had a very nice time!
