A Little Chaos

No, we are not referring to Miss Dee Dee...

The kids have been living with much activity on Red Head for many months now. They've handled it well, even when they were forced to walk the scary plank. But most of the disruptions have been happening below decks and have had little impact on Dylan and Dee Dee's day to day life. This week that changed.

If you follow the kids' blog then you know that we have been planning a bit of interior design work. There were some new chairs and lamps but nothing of much interest to Dylan and Dee Dee. On Thursday Todd arrived to begin installation of the new - Yellow Lab compatible - carpet.

The first task was to remove the old carpeting and make the templates. The wall to wall carpet in the staterooms was pulled up. Dylan and Dee Dee saw their bed disappear as the floor was cleared of various items.

In the salon, the rugs, furniture, and yes, even their dog beds were piled around to provide access. With the templates now done, we all look forward to the new carpeting being placed.

How did our long suffering crew manage during this process?

They barely squeaked by....

PostScript:  The Kids' Reward

As a reward for the extreme fortitude that Dylan and Dee Dee have shown, Mom and Dad brought down the dinghy and took the kids for a ride. Of course, there was swimming involved. It's always a good day when swimming is involved.
