Construction project(s)

Such excitement around here!  Our next-door neighbors have a major home renovation going on now*, and the boys could not be more thrilled.  Colsen went to bed early -- on purpose -- the night before it was all to begin, saying he had to go to bed because tomorrow was going to be a Happy Day!

Sure enough, the last couple of days have been full of a lot of this:

Paling considerably in comparison, a project in our yard has been a hit, too.  I asked Pete to build us a mini car-wash/bike-wash/person-wash (seen on Pinterest) and he graciously complied.  To try it out, we invited some friends over today:

Once they tired of washing things, they turned it into a giant drinking fountain:

Good ol' summer fun!

*  We had brunch at these neighbors' house this past weekend, and within the first 30 minutes, one of us had spilled bright red juice all over their carpet.  But honestly, this renovation was planned long before we went over -- really!  If they made the decision on the spot to include carpet replacement in the project, their faces didn't show it.
