Bokeh Goes Exploring

  • The New House

living our house building experience through pictures right now. It’s a little nerve racking to think that we’re missing a full week and a half of work but we have some great house sitters (aka, our parents) who are keeping us up to date on the progress. Building a house is just a crazy experience…. and we do love it! We are just so thankful for the advice that we received about visiting the site everyday and taking a ton of pictures (like I would really have an issue with that). Right now they’re probably finishing the stone on the front and who knows what’s happening on the interior!

It’s so much fun to see the rooms drywalled!! It really looks like a HOUSE now!!! Since they have cleaned up the floors and picked up the nails, we let Bokeh boy run around for the first time last week. He LOVED it. In our house now, there isn’t a big enough space for him to really pick up speed! We quickly found out that he loves running laps in the new house! We ALSO found his favorite “lookout” spot!! There’s a window downstairs that allows him to see everything that’s happening on the road. He’s such a cutie! Enjoy some more house updates and I can’t wait to share what has been accomplished when we get back!!


The walls of the garage will be covered in stone, as well as above the porch on the second floor! Thanks to my momma for the pic!


He found his “spot”…. I’m preparing myself for the “nose” marks we’re going to have all over the house. The windows are JUST low enough for him to see out of! :)

Happy puppy!


He explored….


And then he got tired…. :)
