My in-laws came and stayed for two weeks in June. On June 16 they moved my washing machine into the driveway. Andy finally had time to finish painting (only the walls behind the washer mind you) so we could move it back in. The rest of the laundry room is still under construction, but we're closer; it's starting to come together. So today I have done four loads of laundry so far...
Here's a tip: if your washing machine ever spends a month in your driveway, wash out the water lines before trying to run it. You wouldn't believe what could make it's home in there.
And finally, a few construction pics with E helping out.

It's not the beloved movie-centered rides and shows.
It's not the heavily engineered thrilling roller coasters.
It's not the familiar plushy characters.
It's the fences and drain covers and smashed popcorn on the ground that make Disneyland such an exciting place for one year olds. E & cousin Froglegs spent the whole day going in and out of fences, pulling at manicured bushes, smashing pieces of chewed gum.....you know, all the really cool things to do at Disneyland.

This is the normal view of my backyard. I kind of miss it. Today is the first day in 18 days that it is not supposed to rain one drop. I haven't been able to hang E's diapers in 18 days! And June is supposed to be the dryest month in Utah. And now, of course, my washer and dryer are living in my carport and my utility room is ripped out down to the studs. I just love old homes and reconstruction projects. Thank god for my inlaws...
