Weekend Wrap-up: Re-modeling & Craziness

Ahhhhh.....our new floor...

Yeah, yeah I know I am a day late for this to really be an accurate weekend wrap-up. But do you not know by now how disorganized I am? Besides, this really was a crazy weekend. My parents went to visit my oldest sister and her family at a cool horse show in Reno and that left just the right amount of days we needed to camp at their house so that Ross could finish a very, very long awaited re-modeling project at our house.

We have been in our house for 10 years now. It is the first home that we have bought and it has been a work-in-progress from the get-go. But if that doesn't describe us in a nutshell, then I don't know what does. Our family is truly a work-in-progress and boy does our home reflect that! :-) Someday I will have to dig out some of our earliest re-modeling photos. Suffice to say that our small 1180 sq ft home that we purchased in 1999 has had everything torn out(except for the dishwasher and the tub/shower combo in the bathroom), re-painted, re-surfaced and/ore completely re-modeled. And after the twins were born, we also added over 1000 sq ft and a new garage/shop.

Apparently we don't like to finish projects. Because this baby is on-going and constantly being changed. I am sure there is something Freudian in that. Okay, okay I digress. Anyway, over a long four days. Ross not only took out the ugly kitchen tile, he then installed new hardwood and re-sanded and re-finished all the hardwood downstairs.

And in between all of that we still managed:

A car show...
Hot Rod's favorite this show.
Lil' Mermaid's fave this time
...where the kids always make us take a picture of them in front of their favorite hot rod at each show.

An air show...
