men at work!

We are finishing our basement! We flew out Cameron's brother Dallin to help with the framing and help Cameron to go fast. We are basically making it one big room. It will have a full bathroom, along with the rooms that we did during Christmas, which are Cameron's man cave and our storage room. There are a couple of spots that I'm having Cameron build some built in cabinets and bookcases. We are excited to have that space, mostly for the kids to go and be loud and run all they want without running into anything.
The guys took out the bottom part of the stairs that we are opening up to the room. Zack and Coleman LOVED being able to hit holes in the wall with the hammer. Then Dallin decided to punch through the wall. Coleman LOVED it! He just kept saying, "that was awesome"! Then Cameron had to head butt the wall.

They've been working all day and have the whole room framed.

This is totally the kind of thing that happened in the old days when I left Cameron in charge.

Hey, Madi thought it was so funny that you threw up after you got your ear pierced. It made her feel much better about it. THanks for sharing. Can't wait to see your basement. Has Cameron been working out? I swear he gets bigger every time I see a new picture of him! (Bigger:muscular not Bigger:fat)
Wish you were going to Gma Pope's bday party!

Cameron is a MACHINE when it comes to projects. How does he do it all? (With your help, of course!)

Looks Great! What little boy wouldn't love to put a good hole in the wall. I bet you are so excited to get this done!! I am sure Dallin and Cameron had a great time working on it together.
