Just Your Average Sunday Afternoon..

Some people rest. Some read. Perhaps a few go on nature walks.. or pray alot.
Us? We decided it was a great afternoon to demolish our famously hideous, at LEAST 40year old, tater cellar. Wasn't long before the hammers were pounding.. rusty nails we're flying.. and there were even neighbors gathered round to join in the festivities. Due to highly uncooperative participants-- I failed to get a shot that truly shares the excitement and energy of pure destruction.. but WAS able to capture just HOW nasty of a structure.. how truly offensive to the naked eye.. this particular tater cellar, is. Make that, WAS.

Let me know what kind of awful visions of slum-like poverty it stirs up for you personally. The back side's even nicer.

Jesse dared to take on the surely haunted innards.

Brynne and Bryan.. crutches and all.. just couldn't resist joining the party.
(Don't let the sitting fool you.. Brynne took out a whole wall single-handedly before the day was done. Who said bunion surgery has to slow a girl down??)
And ooh! Look! There's our other 'fancy' shed behind them! Jealous?

Off to shed heaven.

All in all-- a good time had by all. Only 97 more home improvement projects to go..

The back view of it does have quite a crack house-esque to it, especially with the busted up window. So glad you got out the camera to save the memory of the beloved tater cellar. Now when your kids grow up and their kids complain about living standards they can pipe up with "...well when I was a kid..." and have the photo documentation to back it up with! Good work!

I love projects like that when it's all over. Good job!

Kind of Extreme Makeover Home in Logan Utah. That's our favorite thing to watch on Sunday nights.
We would have joined in the fun too if we were there.

Ok, seriously!!!! Did you forget that you are a nursery leader!?! I thought that all of us came home took a sleeping pill and slipped into a coma!!(haha) You are a trooper!! Let me know when you need help with demolition I'm all over that! That is better than therapy!!

Did you end by cremating the shed? What is a tater shed anyway? It sounds scary. I love the good destruction project, as do my children.

It looks really therapeutic...I bet if I got to smash things and burn them every day I'd be really peaceful and calm.

What's next? Can we come demolish the next thing?
