For the past several months, John David and Clay have been working super hard building a hunting ranch about 45 minutes outside Fayetteville. Of course, Patrick and Richard are part of the team as well...just more on the business side of things. They are hoping to sell it (anyone interested??), but we plan on enjoying it as much as we can before they do! :) So, last night, the wives picked up some Penguin Ed's BBQ and took it out there to hang out and see all the progress. It looks amazing!! John David is truly in his element...getting to be out in the woods all day, every day for work! Here are some pics from our fun time out there, and a glimpse of what they've been working on...
A view of the front so far
The main area so far...it's completely open with a huge fireplace in the middle. LOVE the floorplan!
And this is what surrounds the entire place!! I'm so excited that the leaves are starting to change color!!
This is taken from the upstairs back deck...a shot of the workshop in the back.
Lyla thought this was really funny...Kristen would lean her in for some sugar from Uncle Richard and she would just giggle away. Nothing better than some Lyla kisses!
This is D.L.'s new thing...he does this pose and this face while saying, "You the Man!" haha! SO CUTE!!
The gang enjoying some BBQ in the kitchen
I love that the upstairs is open to the downstairs...hello everyone!
Lyla had so much fun running all around
And, of course, this is always a fun game...climbing up the stairs.
(don't you LOVE that Cedar post??)
And then we had a dance party outside!!
This one's dark...but so cute of Lyla and Daddy dancing
And then, D.L. literally just walked over to Lyla, grabbed her hands and started dancing with her! Be still my heart.
Roe and Lyla...just cruising around the land.
Little Lyla changed into her pj's before the drive home, and Daddy decided to throw her around a bit before we got in the car. I know, it looks scary...but Lyla laughs so hard when Daddy throws her so high!!
