My dad came to help us on our property for a week. We re-did our septic system field lines, pushed out a new driveway, trenched for a sprinkler system and outdoor electrical. He ran the backhoe for 2 full days, then helped Creighton map out the electrical/sprinkler layout.
It was an amazing week. We got so much done.
AND he saved us thousands of dollars....
The 25th was his 65th birthday. My sister flew in to surprise him. We had a cookout, invited local friends, and all 16 children sang happy birthday to Papa. :)
