We started our long weekend off with some very exciting house projects. On the actual 4th of July we stained both the front porch area and the back deck, along with fixing up some trim near the garage. The staining was an all day long project even with the two of us working on it a majority of the day.
We celebrated the completed projects with a nice dinner on the grill and some tasty beverages.
The next day we went to Elysia and Nick's house to play games, eat sliders and drink more tasty beverages.
Sunday was pretty low key, but then on Monday my brother and his wife welcomed their new baby to the world. His name is Ethan Wayne and he was 9 pounds, 6 ounces and 23 inches long at birth. On Tuesday evening Luke, Patrick and I went down to Mankato to meet him.
