Oooooo there's a 19 Photo Slideshow!

In the so-called spring of 1998 we built a deck in our backyard. We had to battle unseasonably wet weather throughout the project which really slowed things down. If it had stayed dry, I believe we could have finished the whole thing in about 3 weeks. As it was it ended up taking about 8 from the time I dug the first foundation hole to when I made the final curved cut in the back. Hell we're still adding stuff to it as I write this (and it just happens to be raining AGAIN as well [May 27th, 1998] ).

We plan on enjoying it immensely once we get the chance.

Oh yeah, side note: Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I used a disposable camera that had been sitting on my dresser for about 2 years... it was a no-name brand to boot. You should see the original prints! I LOVE PHOTOSHOP!
