Backyard deckness (part 1)
Growing up, my mom always sent me and my sister out to “help your dad,” which, luckily for me (and my sis) meant learning all kinds of fixing/building things. Come to find out, my mom was only kind-of interested in teaching her girls handy skills—mostly, she wanted no-kids-in-the-house time. Well, regardless, I know how to fix stuff and how to be a good helper, so, when my folks decided to stop by, we took full advantage of my dad’s expertise with the construction of a backyard deck, YES!

And, don’t be deceived by the suddenness of the framework, it was after a full day and a half of post setting, measuring and hoping it didn’t rain!
