Dogs + kids = fence

Aaron and I had a busy weekend as Friday at lunchtime, two of my co-workers' dogs came to stay with us for a few days. Daisy is especially full of energy and I think that maybe she and Paisley are long lost twins because they act very much the same. Luckily though, Paisley does not have the howling tendency that Daisy has. Ack!! Maddie is like the old matronly dog who just scolds the other ones for behaving badly. Maddie went to stay with her grandma on Sunday, so Sunday through Wednesday of this week, we're back down to 3 dogs. I took a couple snaps of the pups Friday afternoon while we were out playing... Daisy is on the left and Maddie on the right.Troutt dogs Then we went inside where they immediately made themselves at home on the back of my couch where they can see the road and all the kids and other dogs out walking by.

Then on Saturday, there was no sleeping in! I left the house at 7:30 to go pick up a post hole digger from Rental City and we got to digging holes by 8:30. Dad showed up at 10 to make sure we did the job right (good thing he was there because I think we'd have ended up with a very crooked fence line!) You can see all the fencing materials and tools scattered all over the yard. Fence Project Here's my strapping hubby mixing the concrete for the bottom of the terminal post holes. Fence Project

Another view of the yard, complete with Dad's big diesel truck and the Milwaukee saw that thank goodness we had so we didn't have to hacksaw off all the top rails. That would have been a nightmare! Fence Project These suckers were amazing and only cost $15 for the whole day! We dug about 16 holes I think, each 2 feet deep (and for those of you wondering... yes, I called JULIE).

And Sunday night my cousin Amanda and her husband Kirk and their three kids--Brady, Bethany, and 2-month-old Georgia--came to stay with us on their way back to Ohio. For those of you keeping track at home, that's 7 people and 3 dogs all in our house Sunday night! I took a couple quick shots of the kiddos before work Monday morning: Cameron kiddos
