So we bought this house in may of 2007 and were gone for most of the time we've owned it:) it had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a living room, eat in kitchen and a pantry/utility room. we decided it was tooo small! matt's room is also used as the office and gym:) not much room for matt and definately not any room if we were to have another one, so since we have a little bit of down time we decided to expand just one room but another room non the less:) it will make a big difference for now and later we can add on the rest of the house. Rick has been very good to help us and put the guys to work so thank you rick, neil, todd, nate, mike, and joe and of course my good husband who listens to me complain about how small our house is even though it was technically my idea to move here(he does remind me of that everytime i complain) they have also worked on my front yard and have gotten rid of alot of crap and it looks sooooo much better it is starting to look like the home i was hoping to someday have. the first picture is of our house originally not to pretty but very cute if you look past that color. About the beginning of the summer neil, the two boys, rick and laura came down one saturday and we painted all day and it is now a very nice color of blue with white trim and will eventually have white shudders on the windows and a pretty flower garden:)(someday)

Here they are putting on the room (framing it out) matt has been in heaven because he gets to "help" and papa is here alot along with "neneil" (neil) , grandma and the boys.

This was putting up the roof and the one below is of the roof on and walls up! also of josh and nate trying to fix the electricity that was cut (by accident) to our garage .

This is the back side to show the room a little better it will be the office/gym/storage and someday possibly a bedroom we arent for sure yet. but at this point i dont care i'm just excited to have extra space so my house doesnt feel so cluttered and cramped! hopefully there will be more pictures to come!!!;)

We went to the lake yesterday with the Hart family and had a blast. the boys love going to the lake and playing with eachother. Wes is quite the little swimmer and was just all over the place by himself! he did not want any help, ryan loves the water too and was playing with everyone and matt mostly had fun playing on the boat:) he was ok with the water but he liked jumping off the dock and driving the boat the most.

Matt and Ryan playing with the generator on the dock at the lake
Grandpa "papa" and Matt swimming by the boat with Todd and Wes

This is where Matt spent most of his time he loves to drive the boat

Matt, Wes and Grandma playing on the shore throwing rocks in the water, they had a blast doing this and the rest of the day Matt kept saying "mamma ock ock"(momma rock rock)

Matt was jumping off of the railing on the dock which is like 6 feet up or so off the water but by the time i got the camera to video it he was done so he jumped off the dock instead which was still fun to watch:)
