Back in October the city Right of Way office stopped by to tell us that there was a sewer line which runs under our back fence in desperate need of repair. Soooooo that meant that this summer sometime they'd be digging up parts of our backyard. Sure it's inconvenient, but I'd rather have a few weeks of inconvenience than a backed up sewer any day.

Anyway yesterday the project officially started. The guys working have been really nice so far. They even let Gideon play on the giant dirt mountain as they were packing up yesterday. But how could they stop him? This is like every kid's dream right?

Anyway the view from our front and back windows right now isn't very pretty. We get to look at equipment out the back and a porta potty out the front, but oh well.

After a much needed bath we went over to see Nana and Granpa last night. They just returned from a week long visit to Washington and naturally they brought surprises for the kids. One of them was a bow & arrows for Gideon. Upon seeing them he immediately proclaimed, "Me shoot moose!" And for the rest of the evening that's all he talked about. I swear where to kids come up with this stuff?

Besides playing in the dirt & planning moose hunts, Gideon & are going to celebrate this first day of summer in our grand tradition. Weekly movie dates to the kids' movies at the cheap seats! YAY! Maybe next year Parker will be old enough to join us, but for right now, it's still a mommy/son date!

Every evening after the workers leave Gideon will be in little boy heaven with the dirt piles and big equipment hanging around! How fun!! I am mourning your raspberry bushes and lilacs right now though. *sigh*
