However, as history would dictate in our family, a long weekend is a good weekend to work. Yes. We should work. Hiking? Phhhht!!! Working is more fun. Way. More. Fun.
So it was no surprise when Sean texted me saying that Rona was having a big weekend sale and we should build a deck. We could hike the next weekend, but Rona's sale was now.
Hiking bad. Deck building good.
So the boys and I stained boards for two days while Sean (and Jackson) assembled the deck and yes, we can all stand on it. It's a sturdy little thing.
Jackson is becoming quite the little wood worker. I caught him measuring and cutting wood for Sean with the chop saw.....unsupervised. He still has all his fingers. That's a good thing. Playing a saxophone at school would be that much more difficult.
Hiking happened the following weekend. I held them to it. Blog on that later.
