That's my Sam!
All right, Sam. You asked for it! :)
We were finishing up our back yard this week. With the slope of our yard, we had found it impossible for seed to grow in certain areas. As soon as it rains (even just a little), we get quite a river running through the back. So we've been doing sod, little by little. This week was the end.
Since the sprinkler system is already established, we can't drive a truck over to where we wanted the sod. So Sam would park on the side of the house with the pallet of sod, and we would fill the wheelbarrow up and move it that way. It's quite a process. My studly husband thought it would be a great photo-op to stack the sod twice as high as we had been stacking it and have me take a picture with him pushing it across the yard. He laughed, while saying, "Maybe you could put it on your blog!" Ha ha.
I want to say two things about this.
#1. Sod is really heavy, and it's tough to push a full wheelbarrow of the stuff.
#2. Taking the picture was not my idea!
Sam made it almost to where he was going before the wheelbarrow overcame him and tipped over. Half the sod to one side and half to the other.
All he said when he turned around to the sound of my laughter was, "Did you get the picture?"
Don't worry, honey. I got it. :)
Check back later this week for more fun pictures of Sam--involving a chainsaw and a tall ladder!
