Mom and Dad were on vacation last week
and it became a staycation

The original plan was to go camping for a couple of days
but temps in the high 90's put the halt to that

So what did they do?

They worked on projects around the yard

Our ramp off the deck needed some rework
The carpet was coming apart and the wood was soft

Dad replaced the wood

 Then he put new carpet on

I was happy to supervise

Testing! Testing!

Wahoo! Our ramp is good as new!

Next they tackled the deck railing

You can't tell in the picture 

but the lattice was cracking and breaking

Mom & Dad wanted to do something different 
so they took the railing apart

and replaced the lattice with composite wood slats

They match some of our fence and mom says it compliments the color of the house

We found it all kinda boring

Bailey is ready for them to go back to work
so he can get back to his regular nap schedule

Be sure to join us tomorrow
 for an impawtent campaign announcement

and visit Dory today for fun Pawlympic news!

We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

The new deck railing looks wonderful and we love the idea of a ramp! Mom says she'd love to sit on your swing with the canopy and swing away.

Sarge said...

Wow, I think that's great! Every peep vacation should be a staycation so they never leave us. Great job snoopervising and testing.

They did a lot of great work. It looks wonderful. A tip of the tail to them, and to you for your great supervision. A staycation is good because they stay with you

Staycation sounds like a workcation to me. But it looks fabulous. Wish we had a handy man at our home. The heat is terrible here also, it got to a feels like temp of 110 degrees today. But we went for ice cream tonight so all is great.
Thanks for being a friend

We love your pretty new deck and that ramp, we have always been jealous of it, mom says she hopes staycation comes real soon, like in a few years, so she will never have to work and we can play all the time, I fink hers is dreaming. stella rose

Smart of you all to camp out in the house (with the AC) during the heatwave. Doesn't look like it stopped your dad, though! Wow, is he talented! Your deck looks fantastic. And your pug ramp is the most adorable/awesome thing ever. Hope your dad got to do a LITTLE relaxing, too, on his staycation! :)

Your mom and dad did a fantastic job on the deck,, Its very complementary,, and looks sturdy too.
I hope your getting your naps again now, and I hope the weather gets cooler so you all can go camping !
