Bobbi and Travis will celebrate 1 year of marriage on August 17. Last night we had a family get together and I decided to make them a cake and celebrate a week early.
1: They destructed their entire basement with the help of Bryan (Superman)
2: They remodeled it again with Bryan's help.
3: While doing that they decided to gut, as much as possible, the breezeway that is a dining area.
4: Painted and finished the basement and dining area.
5. Refinished the kitchen cabinets.
6: Painted the bathroom.
7. Got new carpet in the basement.
8: Immediately got flooded in the basement and had to tear out the carpet pad and replace it.
9: The flooding resulted in tearing out the deck and doing major dirt repairs to the backyard.
10: Cut down a tree.
11: Painted in the kitchen area.
12: Rearranged all the bedrooms and got a new bed.
13: Replaced the door to the back yard.
All while each working about 10 -12 hours a day. They amaze me.
I am sure there are more things I don't even know about. And Superman rated a place on the cake because they admit and it is true none of this would have gotten done without his hard work every Monday for all winter.
Through all of this, which most poeple don't take on in a lifetime, let alone their first year of marriage, they have laughed, cried, stayed friends and come out on the other side still married and happy. I salute them!
