We Need A Break - It's Time To Play!


We've been working non-stop on the new playroom...

so we've decided that it's time for a break!

Today we're taking the boys for one last day of BIG summer fun before school starts and heading to

Wild Waves and Enchanted Village.

I think the last time I was there was in 8th grade...

*sheesh*

So it's been a while.

The boys have never been and I cannot wait to see how big their eyes get when we walk through the gates! They are going to be so excited!



Bonus:
It's a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest today! We couldn't have asked for better weather!

A little update on the progress of the new play room:

We accomplished a lot yesterday...despite a burnt out router.

That's right - as soon as Will started in on the new trim, the router gave up. (Figures, right?) He has had it for about 8 years and it gets used all of the time. So, off to Home Depot we went to get a new one. It was amazing the difference in performance between the old and the new router! I think it had probably been going out for a while and we just didn't realize it.

Once we got the new router home, we got back to work and it all went pretty smoothly from there.

The interior of the room is nearly done. We're still waiting on the french doors to arrive and they're expected to be here by Thursday or Friday. Once we get them up, we can finish the wall treatment that we installed as well as the rest of the trim.

But don't worry, I won't make you wait until it's finished to see it all!

I have taken pictures of each step that we've done and I'm happy to share those with you.


But for now, we're off to play!

The room will just have to wait...

I bet you will be more exhausted after the day at Wild Waves than you have been throughout the whole reno. Lol
