New House Adventure Week 8

I have news!  I finally have house news!  We have a hole!  We have a hole!  And it is the most GLORIOUS hole in all of the universe!  And it is ours.  :)

Brandon drove out to the lot today on his lunch break and saw that they had dug the hole and put gravel down and are putting in the cement walls.  I know it's not much, but we are SO EXCITED, because this building a house thing finally feels real again.  So tonight after dinner, we drove out to see the progress - I had to see it for myself.  :) doesn't look like much?  I know?  Kind of boring, but this is it.  We are excited they are finally breaking ground.  Looks like the house is scheduled to be framed the 2nd or 3rd week of May, and they are pouring cement (we think) tomorrow, or at the very latest sometime this week.

Men and their big machinery.

Daddy/Son exploring.

King of the Mountain!!

I adore this picture of my man and my girl.  They both look so cute.  (Can a grown man look "cute?"  Sorry Honey!)

Had to get a full body pic of Mila, because she is wearing pint-sized capri's, and my little heart was totally shrieking out!

Pointing to the hole, declaring it is good!

I wore terrible dirt-trawling shoes.  My feet are totally dusty.

Cade loved the big dirt machine thingys.  I have no idea what they are called.

Already littering on our property!  Harumph.

Mila stole the iPad away from  me on this one...

Cade was obsessed with traversing this gravel mountain.  He kept climbing it over and over again.  It was definitely the hit of his evening.

We are so happy.  :)  For a few weeks there when nothing was happening, this whole house dream felt so unreal, and so far away and like it was never going to happen.  Seeing ground being broken, and things happening, made it all real again, and the excitement just came rushing back to me!  I cannot wait to visit the lot every week and see the progress.  Looks like my New House Adventure installments are BACK AND BETTER THAN EVA.

Be excited with me!  Who knew holes could elicit so much FERVOR AND EXCITEMENT?!  ;)

Very exciting! And yes, that pic of Brandon and Mia is awesome. And you look so happy pointing at that hole! It's so nice to see your unleashed excitement! If we ever take a road trip, you will most definitely have to let us stay over at your new house! And then maybe you can convince Tim to build us one, lol!

Ops, I meant Mila.
