and the mess grows........

Not sure what I'm going to do with all this rock yet.......any ideas?

Our foremen surveying the situation......

 I think these might have been from an old retaining wall....they were so buried it's hard to know for sure !

 these were all found buried....an odd thing to use as fill......

 One big trench.....

One happy little boy....:)

 One super pleased Mr. Jones ...)

and the mess begins........





Yesterday the plans were taking shape for our new retaining wall and the yard was still bushy.....Today,  Mr. Jones arrived with his truck & chainsaw........by the end of the afternoon the yard had received quite a hair cut....... 3 pick up loads.......the big toys arrive tomorrow as long as the weather co-operates ....:)

a little fresh air and vitamin D at Cluxewe

  It was a 4 foot tide when we arrived perfect for skipping rocks....

 Something had quite a feast.....






 Keisha found a chiton shell to add to her collection


 I love when these guys get into a huddle....this one was about examining each others treasures

Anthony found a whole un mangled Halibit.  I was impressed with how well he answered all his sibs questions.  Keisha think their eyes are cool !
