Patio (Paddy-O) Kelly



So it was spring break, and since I don't go to work no mo, I had it off. Ma and Pa decided to come down to Austin to visit their only grandchild, but I put Pa to work making a new decomposed granite patio under our weird carport/party cover. Imagine my chagrin coming out of the shower and seeing my dad already working. I decided to take pictures instead of picking up a rake. Bald guys are kind of a-holes.




After a couple more cups of coffee, I went out to help dad, and we had the party patio prepped, Patty! It WAS St. Patty's day, and it ain't cool to make guys with the last name of Kelly work on said day, but..



A big ole dump trunk dumped this pile of decomposed granite in our driveway/neighbor's yard. Thought mom was watching the baby! It's cool, we had shovels, so we dug her out pretty quickly.



Behold! Party patio!



Dad even washed off the tables and chairs fer us.



At the end of the day, he did get about 15 minutes of quality time with the leprechaun before we told them it was time for them to go home. They are allowed back when we landscape the front yard.
