Our first project was to use the air compressor to "blow out" the sprinkler system. We have this home-made sprinkler system that the previous owner cobbled together, and the system can be a little difficult to decipher. Our first attempts were unsuccessful.

While we were hard at work in the garage, Ledger and BoomMa were hard at work in the front yard, raking up leaves. Kinda.
After watching the KSU v. OU football game on television, we headed out to enjoy The Scheme pizza. YUM!!
On Sunday, we got back to work on projects. Chris and BoomPa worked on trimming out our electric fuse box downstairs. Chris loves using the pneumatic nail gun too! The trim work turned out very good. All we need is a little stain and it will look like it was built that way.
While the boys were working hard downstairs, BoomMa, Ledger, and I were in the kitchen making up caramel apples for fall treats. Ledger decided he didn't want any caramel and didn't want to put the stick in the top of his apple... only in the side. :) He's so funny.
After lunch, Ledger took a (much needed) nap and we finished two more projects -- fixing the garage door and (finally) flushing out the sprinkler system. All-in-all, it was a fantastic weekend. We were all exhausted. Ledger napped from 1:30 to nearly 6 p.m. on Sunday! Now we have to prepare for Halloween!!
