They're at it again!

Yup! Finally Mike (married to our neice) came over to frame for the cement pour.  Cement is ordered and will be be here at 7 am on Friday!   Excited that more is starting to happen with the garage building!  Here are a couple of pictures of Steve and Mike working today.  It got hot here today. The last I checked it was 79 degrees Farenheit.  So maybe it turned 80, but I'm not sure.  There was a nice breeze today, and if there would not have been a breeze, it really would have been hot.  Of course, we do not know hot, as those in southern states know hot!!   But after a long winter, and a couple of rainy weeks,  it was a wonderfully nice day.
Here Mike is squaring up the corner.  Odda is coming over to check things out!  Now she can't dig in the sand any more!!!!!

They didn't get it completely framed, but will finish that tomorrow and  they will finish leveling the sand and put in the rebar for stabilizing the cement.  Steve says this is called a floating floor.  There is like a ditch on the inside of the wood frame that will be the base for the walls.  Of course, I'll do more pictures as things proceed.  I'm glad that work is starting again.  Weather got in the way - but that happens to all contractors.  Just get started on something and weather can put you back a couple of weeks real easy.  Then than screws up your scheduled jobs that are waiting for you to get their jobs started.
Monday we visited the neighbors goat farm again.  Gene and Connie went with us.  Connie was still in her jamies when we got there!  She really hadn't been up very long.   I had rhubarb left over dessert - so we all ate that for breakfast before going to the other neighbors farm.  Those goat babies are so o o o  cute!
Nathan showing Steve some of the moma's.  They are all so friendly, and want to be petted.
Remember the two baby pigs that Trish bottle fed.  They are now in the great outdoors (yes with shelter), and this one was snuggled down in straw, just peeking out at us!  Cute!  That goats milk sure works good when piggy moma didn't.

Be sure to comment again for another chance for the giveaway!

Oh - Do you want to see something really cute!?!?!    Stop over at my other daughters blog to see granddaughter Renee's short video!!  It's so cute:  Feelin the Wind .  She isn't walking yet, so gets a little unsteady.  Wish they lived closer!

Those goats and the pig are really cute!

Your weather looks perfect for the prep work on the garage. I'm glad to see Odda is overseeing all the details!

That's awesome that they are making progress on the garage!! Glad you guys are having nice weather! We've been kind of stuck in a monsoon like weather the last couple of weeks LOL!!

It's hard to believe your temperatures are warmer than ours. We have barely been above 60 degrees for the past week.
The goats are cute, but I like the pig lounging in the straw the best. I can't believe how much it has grown.
Renee's video is sweet. Won't be long before grandma's girl is toddling everywhere. I like their black lab too.

Isn't it great when progress happens, especially on something you're awaiting anxiously - like a garage! Those goats (both mamas and babies) are soooo cute! I love goats and want one so badly. My SIL is thinking of getting some for their farm and my nephew said to her, "Mom, if you get goats Aunt Cyndi will be over here every day!" LOL!!! Wonder if he said it like that was a bad thing? :o)

That pig almost is hidden in that straw.
Hope the weather stays nice enough for you guys to get the cement poured.

Looking good with building the garage!
