The New House

Concrete Adventures

There’s nothing

better than showing up at JUST the right time for something! Sometimes we go to check on the house and we have impeccable timing!! This happened to us on Friday. We were stopping by to make our daily visit and we noticed the concrete truck was backed into the garage. After taking a quick look around, I was freezing and ready to get back in the car but Michael was slow to leave. I finally realized that he was secretly hoping to see the concrete being poured. As I walked back into the house, we heard the concrete truck start spinning faster and it was go time!!!

You would have thought it was Christmas morning. Michael was in awe. He took videos and pictures to make sure this exciting new addition to the house was well documented! ha! It’s the little things in life!!…. Or should I say the “sloppy” things… it was pretty gross! Happy Monday!

    Watching concrete get poured is always exciting to me, so Michael shouldn’t feel too strange. It’s probably one of those guy things. Congrats on the progress!

    i sure hope that window on the garage floor was moved before the concrete ran in that direction! That would be funny to get a ‘free extra window in your garage!” Love seeing the progress – you’ll be moving in before long!
