Here comes the deck, Part 1

We had a very productive weekend at the Pheasant's house. After three days, we have a deck. Well, not entirely, but very close to looking like one. Fake it 'til you make it, right?

Day 0 - Home Depot Run
My dad came down on a Friday afternoon so we could get a jump start on the weekend. Any good DIY project starts with a trip to the big orange box, Home Depot. It took us two hours to figure out which supplies we needed based on the stock. FYI, apparently no one works at Home Depot on Friday night.
Here's a photo of my Pops with my purse cruising the aisles. 😂

Around the yard

Hey! We are getting ready to build the deck. Woot woot! In the meantime, I thought I would show you what’s happening in the yard.

I planted some onions a couple of months ago and they are coming up.
 Also, carrots went in the ground in November. Looking good!
 I replanted the Honey Mandarin that I potted two years ago into this area so it can get more sun and hide the fence.

Lastly, we borrowed our neighbor’s jack hammer and took out the top two steps off the mud room in anticipation of the deck.
