Building a better barn than the one behind them
Steve (The Husband's friend from work) and his daughter Valerie kindly donated their services today to the construction of a little barn for the soon-to-arrive piggies. We needed Steve for his experience in building—he built his own beautiful house pretty much all by himself. They've been out there working all day in the hot sun with very little help from me (or the dogs).
Lester and Sophie have been doing what they can: raiding the tomato garden, swimming in the creek, helping me make sandwiches... At least they did a pretty good job of posing for their fall portrait. The mums came from visiting relatives (hi Bets!), and the pumpkins from The Husband's garden.
