Carpet and Critters

It's been a couple weeks since I wrote - we've been doing a lot! 

The big house news was the carpet installation upstairs.  What a difference some carpet makes in this space.  There were quite a few different tiles on the floor up here so it was nice to have a consistent flooring! 

We still have a few things to finish up here - installing the railing, caulking the bathroom, installing the bathroom fixtures, and painting the stairs.  Of course now the weather is warming so we're spending more time playing and working outside instead.  Maybe a rainy day will force us to finish so we can post some real before/after pictures.

I took the kids down to DC last week with some friends to look at the cherry blossoms.  We had a good time with a picnic and even stopped by the Air and Space Museum too.  It was great!

One thing that comes with warm weather is critters (and bugs and snakes) coming out.  Unfortunately, a baby rat snake found it's way into our basement.  I was able to take care of it (and in the process probably made Chris happy I'm not squeamish). 

We also had a lot of ants show up on our porch and patio - at least they're staying outside for now!

One other fun thing we did was to travel up to Penn State for the Blue-White game over the weekend.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take any pictures of the day but the kids had fun (particularly the Creamery ice cream!). 

Hopefully we'll have a lot more to show next week!
