Before I get too far behind, I better recap last weekend. I had three photo sessions, but I managed to squeeze in a fun trip to Hutchinson to help make six sets of bean bag toss games for Erin and Jachin's wedding.
Upon my arrival I was greeted by their dog Pheboe. I am not a huge fan of dogs, but I really enjoyed having her around.
Patrick had gone earlier since I had a photo session earlier that morning. The board making was in full swing by the time I got there.
The bases for the boards.
The legs for the boards.
Everything was going pretty smoothly until we tried to make the circle cuts. Neither Jachin or Patrick could keep the drill from spinning out of control.
Later that night we were still working on getting the legs attached to the bases and Erin's dad Mike came home. He asked us if the circle drill bit was working. We told him we couldn't get it to work, so Jachin and Erin were out buying a new jigsaw so we could use this other method. He told us he was going to try the circle drill bit and he was able to get it to work. He then went on to do the rest of the boards.
That night Patrick and I were able to stay in the barn. It was definitely the only and nicest barn I have ever slept in. Here are some photos of the barn and the rest of the farm. Erin's parents also own the Crow River Winery, which is why they are growing all the grape vines.
Here is Patrick watching the Olympics in our suite in the barn. Pretty awesome, huh.
After I left they got some of the tops attached to the bases. They still aren't completely done with them, but we got a lot done considering there were six sets to make.
