And the wall comes tumbling down

It is construction central over here. Paulo busted his butt over the long weekend to gut our 2 front rooms (with the help of the dads). We've been talking about this project for 7 years now and FINALLY its happening - all because of my dedicated, hard working, talented hubby. We are turning 2 small rooms into one big room by taking down the dividing wall, as well as putting in new walls and ceilings...not to mention all the exciting extras - new lighting, trim, fireplace mantel, wall color, etc. Here are some pics.

Thomas and I went to the CT shore for the weekend to avoid all the mess (and work!) Here is his first trip to the beach (to sit and play in the sand, not walking on the beach in his stroller) He really enjoyed it.

Looking good! I can't wait to bring Baby G down later this summer to check out the new digs! : )
