Summer in the Bayou

Last weekend we went to Lafayette for Matt's dad's birthday and father's day...and to go wake boarding on the water with our friends. It was a lot of fun, although I didn't do so well on the wake board this time. Sina just bought a new boat so we decided to go out on it and bring all of our friends. Sunday we grilled for Father's day and I worked on homework and called my dad. We still owe him a trip up to Oklahoma for his Father's day. We got home at 1 am and I had school birght and early.
This week we started fabricating the things we have been drawing for the past two months. It is so nice when you start to see parts of your design come together and REALLY get built. On top of fabrication, the guy that OSHA 10 certified us came and gave us a fork lift training class so now I am a licensed fork lift driver haha. I think I was a natural. (pics to come of me driving it) We began cutting my wood fromwork for the concrete cistern and cutting steel for the pavillion. Today I welded steel together for the first time. It is a little nerve racking, but I think I can get used to it. Although we are working 8 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday in jeans and steel toe boots in an un-airconditioned shop in the 100 degree weather...I am actually REALLY enjoying doing the physical work and the day passes by so fast.
Tomorrow Matt and I are going to look at venues for our wedding...wish us luck!
p.s. I accidentally started a wedding website when I signed up for theknot.com, so then I HAD to really make it so if people looked at it there would be info...here is the link: Sweet Happenings
