Gone Roofin'

I know I've skipped quite a few events such as Elita's Bday, and a few other random things, but I'll be sure to get back to those later! (LW) So anyway, I will blog about this event while it is still fresh in my mind.
Today we went to help our wonderful friends, the Bandys, work on their roof. It was a great evening filled with laughter, fun, food...... and work! But who minds when you are surrounded by such great friends, and have an opportunity to serve others! It makes it, dare I say, fun! Yes, from hefting shingles, to climbing ladders. Scaling the roof, to toting a wheelbarrow with three people because it's wheel was flat. These are memories that make my life what is is today, and what it will be tomorrow.
After arriving, we were soon joined by some of our other awesome friends, the Niesens, with Jeff who's a pro at roofing. You should have seen that nail gun fly!
After about half and hour or so, "Dinner!" was called, and in no time we were being treated to an amazing (as always if it was made by the Bandys) Dinner of Garlic bread rolls with meatballs and tomato sauce, salad with Fetta Cheese, and other things that can be put under the category of "Delish"!
Going back out we were ready to hit the roof, or at least that crew, while the ground crew, among other things, hauled shingles up the ladder, and onto a stack where they could be easily accessed. I think I can feel my muscles growing as we speak. ;) Anyway, without further ado, enjoy the pictures as you catch a glimpse of our evening!


Dad wanted me to photoshop in some big muscles :)

Workin' on a roof, you need walk extremely carefully

Those ladders were moved around quite a bit!
