We were over at Crump's barn this morning with mom while she was cleaning up and packing the car to bring paper goods and yummy left-overs home. This weekend was a HUGE success!
How yummy does this look?
Mitch and I only got to lick the stick. Mom said that chocolate is not for us!
What a meanie!
Mom says you'd all rather see pictures of the barn but Mitch and I were quite certain that you'd rather see the food first, right?!
This is the first floor of the barn. Sorry about the bright light blinding you at the top. There is one more upper gable that still needs to be sided.
We are now upstairs looking out of that gable that still needs to be sided.
We are still upstairs looking towards the other end of the barn. This gable has been entirely sided! Are these timberframers good or what?! You can see the angled purlins and queen posts. Aren't they the coolest!
We're outside now! The timberframers worked so hard and did an amazing job! Saturday was one of our hottest days on record! These guys just never quit!
Look what Mitch got!
This is a shot of the barn as we were leaving. The roof boards are all in place and there is weatherwatch on the entire roof, which makes it temporarily weatherproof while dad is away.
When dad comes back, he will continue with overhangs and the roofers will then be ready to roof the barn!
You probably want to know where dad went, right? We took him to the Aireport early this morning. Remember his Amish friend, Tim, who makes the beautiful dog collars? He's at his house right now having lunch!
On Wednesday, dad will drive from Tim's house to Madison, Wisconsin. He's competing in the Transplant Olympic Games! He'll be throwing the discus and swimming and running and playing volleyball!
Dad took his laptop and his camera with him so we are crossing our paws for pictures!
Mom can't wait to get out in the garden and pull weeds! She did say that she had a few surprises for us while dad is away! We can't wait to find out what they are!
