Our deck was begun last summer. It takes some time to complete things with 3 kids (at the time), and as we use things, we decide we need more things.
For example, a gate on the stairs from the top of the deck to the bottom level. JD started working on those just after Eleanor was born, and this weekend he finished them! I have an extension on the house now! We get great shade in the morning out back so the door can be open and Martin can’t fall or get into trouble!
The girls are at a mini camp this morning and Martin is enjoying the deck to himself!
