Rock Pile

Last Saturday Michael borrowed his Dad's truck so we could go to Carpinito's Brothers and pick up a yard of gravel. Grandma & Grandpa Martin watched Owen so Michael and I could go together. It was almost like a little date getting to go somewhere with just my husband. I know that sounds weird, but it was really fun!

Let me tell you a yard of gravel is a LOT of gravel! It only took the guy at Carpinito's Brothers one scoop from his big truck, but it took Michael 25 minutes to shovel it out of the truck. After Michael finished getting the gravel out of the truck I went and picked Owen up from Grandma & Grandpa's house. He had just fallen asleep in Grandpa's lap and he was so cute. I should have taken a picture, but it didn't cross my mind at the time. Silly me!

Later on after lunch we took Owen out so he could see the big rock pile and he was so cute. There were some rocks that didn't quite make it on the tarp and he was picking them up and throwing them on the tarp where they should go. He's such a good cleaner upper!

After Owen wasn't interested in the rocks anymore he got to watch Daddy building the forms for the curbing that he's putting in around the yard. (That's what all the gravel is for)

These last two pictures are from Monday night when Michael was working out in the yard. I had just gotten Owen's shoes on and we were ready to go outside and I opened the door and it was pouring down rain. By then Owen was all excited to go outside so there was no denying him so I let him go out in the rain. We had been out there a few minutes when I remembered that Ga-Ga bought him this super cute raincoat. It's still a little big, but it did the trick and the amazing thing is he kept his hood up the whole time!!!
