House Progress: Framing 7/22 - 7/25

The basement and floor joists were framed in on Tuesday & Wednesday

The exterior walls were framed on Wednesday & Thursday

The interior walls were framed on Friday

After only four days since we updated the house progress it is hard to imagine that so much could be done. The framing company even worked 10+ hours on the 24th of July which is a holiday in Utah.

The Rodeo!!!

We went to the Rodeo on Tuesday night with my Family. We weren't sure how much Zach would like have to sit the whole time. But he did pretty good. He liked all the horses and the sheep. He cheered for Corbin and Trey during the mutton bustin! He would get really excited every time they would let someone out of the shoots on a bucking horse. He also loved the music and he danced to the songs. He also would clap when the audience cheered. We had a good time watching him have fun. We will have to go again next year!

driving the truck

After the fishing trip and two red bulls I asked Zach to back in to hook up the boat trailer while I watched him and he did a great job. This kid can drive anything.

Fishing Day

I had to add this to the blog. When we went fishing Zach did not take a nap in the morning and he normally does take a nap. By the afternoon when we started the trek back to the docks Zach was driving the boat and he did his best to stay awake.

He took his job of getting us back very seriously but you can see the sleepiness taking over.

Lunch with Daddy!!!

Today Zach and I went to Lunch with Rhett. I have Mondays off and we usually just stay home but today we went to Provo and had lunch at Taco time with Rhett. Zach had so much fun because the high chair had wheels and he could push him self against the table and slide across the restaurant. He is getting so big way too fast.

Zach's 1st Big Boo Boo!!

Zach got his first big boo boo on Friday at Grandpa and Grandma Reynolds' house. He was following Grandpa around and he fell on the concrete. He was tough Grandma said he only cried for a minute.

Fun with the hose!!

Rhett was watering some dry spots on the lawn and Zach was helping him. Rhett had put the hose down and the next thing he knew Zach had got a hold of the hose and was soaking wet. He had so much fun!!!

Our New House

We are building a new home in Salem. We broke ground on July 4th. I thought it would be fun to track the progress on our blog. We are hoping that it will be ready for us to move in by Christmas.

Fishing at Scofield

On Sunday we went fishing to Scofield with Rhett's parents on their boat. This was Zach's first time on a boat. We were worried that he would hate wearing a life jacket. But he surprised us, he did awesome. He wore the life jacket the whole time and loved every minute of it. We took his bath tub toys for him to play with so they would float if he threw them over board thank goodness that we took them because that is just what he did. We caught about 30 fish and put about half back. We had a great time! I am sure that you can guess what we will be having for dinner!!
