Don't...I mean, DO fence me in

One of the first items we tackled at this house was building a new fence.  When we moved here the fence was completely rotten and falling down. 
Like This:
My hubby and his friend worked tirelessly all weekend to get most of the new fence up.  It took tons of wood, tons of concrete and much sawing and nail-gunning.  Oh, what fun we had!.....not.
Here is one side of the fence after the posts were in. Now we just had to wait for concrete to dry...tick...tick...tick:
And that was only one side.  There is the entire street side of the fence, too.
See here:

Then, there are 2 gates to build.....IN. THE. RAIN.

Doesn't this project look like it was just so much fun? NO??
How about in the rain AND in the dark?

See? NOW we are having "fun". 

After all of those good times, here is what we ended up with:
Sooooo worth it! It has been 2 1/2 years since this fence went up, and man, what a job! Mamma is so glad to have that checked off her list.  Onto the next!
