The workers started to put on the siding.  Here is Asha pointing out that the colors of the new and old don't match.      

Today they started tearing down what is now the inner wall.  They got to the studs on the outer side, but left the rest intact until the door comes tomorrow.  I felt a little exposed having workers so close to my kitchen where I spend most of the day.  I'd better get used to it because they are going to be in my kitchen tomorrow.     

We decided on the counter top and back splash last weekend.  It is not any of the ones that we were considering.  It is Pentalquartz and the color we chose is Lattice.  It is the whitest of all the marble-like quartz we have seen, and we like the grey, gold and green veins that give it depth.            

The back splash is a ceramic tile called Absolute.      

We celebrated our fifteenth anniversary.  Cecily, Scott's sister, kindly and bravely watched our children while we took a weekend getaway to Seattle.  It was like a dream and I didn't want it to end.  Good thing we have cute children and a big project to come back to.             

Happy Father's Day to Scott.  Jerome and Asha bought him a t-shirt that says, "You say tomato, I say tomato, Doesn't make much sense when you read it."  They also made him breakfast in bed, and gave him some cute home-made cards.  It was well deserved because Scott is the one that taught them by example how to celebrate special occasions.  Our kids are so lucky to have a father that loves them and believes in them.  Scott is very involved in their lives and always makes time to have a conversation with them.          

We visited Scott's father to thank him for the wonderful man that he is, and snapped a three generation picture.
