Closet Project

 This past week Crandon jumped into a project.  We've talked on and off for a couple years about re-doing our master bedroom closet to make better use of the space, and we recently acquired a box of decorative shelf brackets, so it seemed like a good time to do it.  Crandon found some nice plywood shelving at a local specialty lumber store and some rods and hardware to match the shelf brackets.



One rod and shelf in a U-shape was definitely not the best layout, although very typical of a walk-in closet.

Close to done!

Clean and spacious, without clothes!  The top shelf and rod is now about seven feet up, instead of closer to five and a half.  The divided hanging area allowed us to have shelving on the back wall, and room for the safe on one side.

And the final result, filled and organized.

One more "after" photo.

Rainy Day

Here are a few pictures from this morning.  A. went outside in the rain, with Daddy, while I went to a doctor's appointment with E.  We are enjoying some much needed rain here this week!

I love this one!

A Day at the Beach

We spent a pleasant afternoon in October (before baby) getting apples at a local orchard, picking up bread from our favorite west county bakery (Wildflour), and finishing with a walk along the beach.
Having a snack in the car, before getting sandy!

Our little guy's first time out to the beach since he's been walking.

Exploring in the sand with Daddy.

A little wind-blown :-)

Checking out the waves.

Lots of fun!
