Fixin' the fence.

Today was a beautiful day!  The sun was bright, the clouds were no where to be found and I got to spend a few hours working with my dad!  These are the days I live for.  I tend to be solar powered, so I was a working machine.  I started off doing some spring cleaning of old paper work.  My dad announced he was heading to the store to get the parts he needed to fix our sad looking dysfunctional gate.  A couple days ago I had asked if I could assist him in repairing it since we have dogs that need a sturdy gate. I left all my paper work behind and had him show me where to start digging the new fence post hole while he went to the store.  A 3 foot deep hole is not easy to dig!  Over the course of the afternoon, we took down the gate, and then put it all back together.  It was a much better workout than going to the gym.  Not to mention the feeling of accomplishment :)

I love doing projects with my dad - though I'm not sure he really knows how much!  I made sure to let him know that I'd much rather help him with a project than go to school!  I love my father a TON!  Doing things like this with him just reminds me how smart and how strong he is.  YUP! That's MY dad!
