After much work (including some structural modifications done in the attic) they got rid of the cabinet and made the wall into a half-wall, thereby opening up the kitchen to the living room.

Notice the oh-so-beautiful blue foam bumpers that were duck-taped onto the hearth; our version of baby-proofing!
Getting rid of the surrounding brick.
The stove was so heavy (approximately 500-600 lbs) that the guys had to use an engine hoist to get rid of it.
A view of our living room through the hole from the garage.
The fresh baked banana bread that I made the boys for their mid-morning snack.

Practicing his back float. This is what he improved the most on by the end of classes - he had such a hard time trusting that she wouldn't let his face get wet!
Ronan graduated from Preschool One and tonight we start Preschool Two!

Upstairs living area
Entertainment area downstairs
The precarious steps - we were happy that there was a baby gate at the top!
Latham wasn't as lucky - his portable crib fit perfectly into a huge storage closet beside Ronan's room!
Latham and Collin enjoying some father/son time.
More father/son time - Collin and Ronan went out into the lake on the paddleboat.

Since I am the Mommy of two Americans, I have the right to wear this shirt.Like father, like son.
The package of fireworks that we got were almost as tall as Ronan!
Lighting the first one.
Grandpa's got his hands full!
My mom, Ronan and I.
Mommy and Baby Boy #1 lighting some fireworks. Once it lit we ran away...
...to watch from a safe distance.
My confused hubby - Holland shirt, American flag, and drinking a Molson Canadian.
In true red-neck style, we hung out on the driveway and set off the fireworks!
P.S. I swear Ronan has more clothes than just this one outfit. For some reason he is always wearing his blue plaid shorts and matching hat in almost all pictures that I put on this blog. Weird!
"Aww Mommy, why won't you let me get a good taste of it?!"
Collin and Ronan returning from a hasty trip to the porta-potty.
Ronan after "picking" - really he just ran around between Collin and I. His cheeks are flushed because it was super hot that day - it was great!
