Finally today, after almost 2 weeks, I am able to park the van in the garage again. Thank goodness! I know it was only about 15 yards from the door to the van parked on the street. But those 15 yards seem like 15 miles when trying to herd two toddlers while carrying a heavy 7 month old, a diaper bag, and all sorts of other supplies. And don't get me started about the pouring rain's effect on that process!
Before (This was a common site on all cemented surfaces around our home)
The walkway is removed.
The driveway and new patio area are leveled and covered with sand.
