So we had to redo our deck. The one that was on the house was a project of the previous home owner's and rotted to the core, literally, it was like the easiest demo job the crew had ever done because it disintegrated under their touch in parts. We put in a much smaller porch, so that now I have room for raised garden beds, and thus they needed to pour a new concrete pad. I was going to have my son press his hand into the wet cement, but he was napping. Happily both the cats decided to stand on it, so now I have paw prints from my two older children ! Cats are cuter than babies anyway.
