Here we are with the beginning stages of excavating our backyard. For a while now we have wanted to lay a concrete slab that eventually we can build on and now we have finally began. Jason, some family and some elders from the ward begain with jack hammers and shovels.
Here we find an old storm water resovior.
Jacob not that thrilled with the Jack hammer
Shovelling lasted about 3 hours before the big guns were called in.......
'The Dingo' mini digger
Even I had a go - We finally got done in 3 hours what it would have taken 3 weeks I think!
Clearly no ocupational Health and safety inspector on this worksite! It was an accident though.
Now the kids get to have a go. Charlotte has no idea where she's going!
"When I grow up I want to be a big bulldozer!!!! said Uncle Scottie
And here's the final result! A nice concrete patio.
Eventually there will be a roof put on and then slowly building in a rumpus room but for now the kids are having a blast riding their bikes and playing basketball!
