Isn't this how you build a fence?

So last weekend, the neighbour with the dogs and S decided it was high time to fix the fence. A decent strong wind could have knocked it over apparently. I could do the same thing to my kitchen cupboards with a sledge hammer but according to my husband the fence takes priority...the eternal bickering over the kitchen continues....

Back to the fence. Friday night S, T and R sat out in the backyard and took down our side of the wayward fence. T helped pull down boards and knock out nails. R supervised from his Muskoka chair.

Thursday night the neighbour's wife had thrown her back out so that threw a bit of a wrench into the plans. Regardless, S and S (the neighbour) got started on the fence Saturday afternoon. T helped carry boards. We had to get things tidied up early as S had a poker game chez nous that night.

Sunday while R had his nap, I took T to see the 2D version of the Lion King. After the movie was done and all of T's questions during the movie were answered, we returned home. T preceded to help carry boards again and generally help out.

T and R tried playing in the yard. R has started up T's old trick of sticking his finger in someone's mouth. If I didn't know any better, I think my kids will end up working in the dental field. They are/were both obsessed with teeth!

By Sunday night, the fence was finished with a few minor tweaks. The neighbour's newest four legged friend (a 5lb black and tan chihuahua) is a bit of a Houdini. If the fence was even slightly too high, she'd escaped so some of the boards had to be lowered despite the gradation of the fence.

Here's some shots from the adventure that was the fence building!

Isn't this what everyone does when they wear their Hello Kitty rain boots???
