Shed on a Hill

At a glace, it appears the shed has bottomed out and is stuck on the hill forever. In reality, they’re just in the process of getting it into place. They were successful (thankfully).

Shed

The shed showed up. When a 12×28 shed is placed in your yard, next to your house, it looks way bigger than it did when it’s sitting on a lot with a dozen other similarly sized sheds. They dropped it off then came back a few days later and put it into place, leveled it, all that jazz. It was quite an experience watching them bring up a hill with a Mule. It has some very basic wiring, but I’d like to beef it up a bit, so that will happen. Then we’ll do some insulating, flooring, add walls, connect power to the house, add a mini fridge and AC, an 85 inch tv, hot tub, bathroom, pinball machine, ice cream machine, pizza oven, and surveillance equipment. Very excited.

July 4th Beach Trip

For the 4th of July, we took a trip to the North Carolina beach. We stayed in a condo, of sorts, within walking distance of the ocean, on Oak Island. While in the area, we got to watch the South Port parade which was a pretty nice parade. While the parade was nice, we, unfortunately, witnessed a Shriner go-cart wreck. Quite the situation. Other than that, the trip was a success. The Mrs enjoyed it. The little one enjoyed it. The dog enjoyed it. I enjoyed it.

Greenhouse Demo

I had to destroy the greenhouse. We’re getting a shed for the back yard and it was in the exact spot where the new shed needs to go. I really over-built this thing. It took more work than I expected to tear it down. The cover was already ripping in places so tearing it down just made it worse… to the point where nothing could really be salvaged. That’s ok. Time to move on to bigger and better things.

Father’s Day On a River

Father’s day was spent on a river in Asheville. We were greatly looking forward to eating at a restaurant called Baby Bull but, sadly, they were closed. The little one wrote me a book with various facts about me (as written by her). She thinks I weigh 100 lbs and that my favorite drink is hot sauce. +pt

Live Music in Front of School Bus

We went and watched some live music. Local band Brother Oliver was playing, of which I’m a big fan (give them a Google, if you’re not familiar). They were playing at a joint surprisingly close to where we live and it was the tiny human’s first concert! She had a good time and we even got pizza!

Unity

…park. Unity Park in Greenville. It’s only been open a month and we got to experience it for the first time. There was a splash pad, with water. It also had some umbrellas. There was as playground area, with hills and turf. It was a neat park. Definitely not your average playground for kids.

First Movie

The little one got to experience her first movie in a theater. I really thought it’d be the Mario movie, but we still are not sure when that’ll be out. This one was pretty good though. Her first movie was in a clean, non-crowded theater, with reclining seats. What a great first experience!

Carowinds June 2022

We made another successful Carowinds trip. It was toasty but we were able to spend time in the water to cool us off. The rides were good, the water park was good, the food was good; the day was good. We’ll see you again soon, amusement park!

Birthday Pipes

Yesterday was my birthday. Even though I had to work, it was nice being able to spend most of it at home with my wife and daughter. I got chocolates and the new Kirby game. Both I and the little one are excited to try that game out! We did go out for dinner with my parents and brother which is always a treat. When we got home, there was an (repurposed) electric keyboard box on the front porch. Mufflers and header pipes were inside. Although not flawless, they are way better looking than I expected.
