So my significant other had a wild hair to build a patio of some sort. Couldn't decide on a deck, concrete or patio blocks. I was just worried about the mess considering my daughter's B-Day Party would be at our house in less than a month. As always though, Melissa amazes me at what she is capable of. Here it is...only one week into her starting this "project" and it's very close to done. With the exception of me just starting helping today she has done it all on her own...and a great job. Up until today I couldn't really help her too much with digging it out and dumping the 50+ lb. bags of sand and gravel beacause of my herniated discs in my back. I helped a lot today though with carrying the individual bricks and laying them. It's like a giant puzzle...we chose multi-colored cobblestone and it's AWESOME!!! I have a feeling we'll be spending a LOT of time outside after it's all finished. How exciting!!! And WOW I can lay a pattern in patio bricks!! Hahaha...It's not so difficult after all...well...at least once it's prepped!! : ) Here's our progress so far and assuming rain holds out....should be finished this weekend! YAYA!
