Trips and Projects

Standard

There haven’t been any posts in a while because we’ve been visiting my parents in Colorado.  It was a fun visit, though weird to think it might be the last time I see the house in the mountains since my parents put the house on the market.  In addition to getting a group photo…

we also got the obligatory pregnant lady shot:

Anyway, now we’re back and have a lot of work to do.  Shortly after our return, the crib arrived in the mail (which I now have to put together), as well as a bunch of crates that I intend to make into a set of bookshelves for Evie.  Here’s the “before picture” (so that everyone can be amazed at my handiwork when I post the “after” picture in a few days):

This is not the final design.

Also, while in Colorado my dad helped me make a set of blocks for Evie.  I’ve already cut and sanded them, but plan to wood-burn/paint letters and pictures on them, so I have that project to work on as well.  Here they are in their current form:

We also got a bunch of baby clothes while on the trip, and brought back some things from my childhood that Evie will enjoy, including stuffed animals and a set of wooden puzzles that my grandpa made.  All in all, I’d say the Varmint made out pretty well.
