Apple Crisp and the Swan House

We made apple crisp for Doug and Steve, who were helping dad on the swan house!

The first step was peeling and chunking up the apples~
 The apple crisp is ready to slide into the oven, mom!
 And 25 minutes later, it's all done and it smell soooooooooooo yummy!
 This is the swan house progress mid-morning. 
Time to taste test it!
 Don't forget the ice cream!
Don't look so sad, Mitch.  Your turn is coming!
 Dessert is ready for the hard-working guys!
And this is the swan house progress just before lunch~
 And here is the progress for the rest of the day~

 Dad is cutting the roof boards to length and Doug and Steve are nailing them down~
The WeatherWatch is on the roof so it won't leak.
Pretty soon the siding will go on and the windows will go in!  Wait till you see the windows! 
Dad is calling it a cottage with a fabulous view!
Do you think he made  the swan house big enough?!
 Look what mom found blooming in her garden!
So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Wow! That swan house looks like a swan palace. Maybe the swans from Swan Lake could come and dance in it.

Thanks for the info about the tomatoes in your older post. I looked them up and they are available in Australia and would grow in my area.

The Apple Crisp looks BEAUTIFUL. Esp. with that elegant presentation.

OMD that is REALLY a lot of Progress on the Swan PALACE.....
NOW we can't wait to see the WINDOWS..

Will there be electricity, hot and cold running water and internet access for the swans? That looks like plush accommodations for the swans. They sure are lucky to live at your place.

Your apple crisp looks delish too!

We love the house. Muzzer wants to lease it for a few months so she can "get away" from it all. Will a twin bed fit in there?
