The deck weekend

After seeing quite a few boards in serious trouble, Alex and I decided to update the deck. The plan was to replace the floor boards and railings in roughly three 8-hour days.  We didn't quite count on the many snags that popped up along the way.  It'll be more like 5 days total.  We're up to 3 1/2 days and it looks great so far:

Alex has discovered some other improvements he'd like to do, like replace the railings all the way around.  We'll still need to paint, but as long as we're done by the end of July, I'm happy.

We're so grateful to Alex's mom who came to watch Isaac while we worked.  We had the added bonus of getting garden beds weeded and landscaping fabric put down as well.  It was a very productive few days! Thank you!!
