Yup, Jacob and I are the proud parents of a chocolate lab and golden retriever! And not only that, but they did a very good job helping us get stuff done this weekend on our house!

With the help of our fathers, Jacob and I were able to finish the cinder block foundation wall Jacob had started a couple weeks ago. In fact- the cinder block wall is supporting the east side of our soon-to-be bedroom! We are quite excited- especially Jacob because he did such a good job!

While my dad was working on the cripple wall, Randy was stacking bricks like crazy and making our retaining wall reach 6ft!

Another thing we started on this weekend was turning our dirt walkway under the house into a concrete one. We had thought about doing this later, but as soon as we got our little babies and they went our there we knew we needed to start the project right away. They got so dirty from all that red dirt- it was adorable but now our house is covered in red dirt paw prints!

All in all, we had a productive and amazing weekend with our new boys. More pictures to come!
