We had 1 ladder golf and 2 bean bag toss games all going at once in our little yard.
It was quite the event.

Thanks to our friends and siblings for coming:)

Before and After

Before, eww...look at those curling gross green shingles...
Peter and I lovingly called it the "GREEN Monster".
When painting the outside green we didn't take into consideration the green shade of the roof. oops

Now the shingles are a lovely clay color and architectural in style.
No more GREEN Monster.

Thanks to all that helped with the roof especially Dana and Jake as well as all our parents!
It was a big job and we are so relieved that all indications of the big job are now gone as the 4 "bagsters" (dumpsters in the shape of a giant bag) were just picked up this week.

We both vowed that once is enough, we will hire out if we ever have to replace a roof again!
