Our white picket fence

Whenever I describe to people how to find our new house I tell them to look for the white picket fence. All summer I have been planning to paint it--at first, we had too much rain, then it was too hot.
After listening to the weather report and realizing fall really is coming to Oregon and the Oregon downpours could start any day now and not stop for a very long time..I knew what I had to do. I had to paint the fence..quick.  I feared otherwise I may have to tell people to look for the weathered mildewing fence...
Mom
Thankfully my Mom volunteered to help!  Painting a fence is so much work..and besides just having the help it was nice to have the company.
After a few hours Mom had to go home to have dinner with my Dad and so my second helper "volunteered" to help.:)  Wyatt is such a sweetheart..he never says no to me though his sister (Chantel) has no problem saying no! (she was seeing the movie "Abduction" I believe it is called when we were slaving away on the fence)


Wyatt
So thanks to my helpers I was able to get the fence done in 3 1/2 hours..it was fun for that amount of time but if I would have had to do it for 7 hours I would not have been a very happy camper!
Now we are still the house with the white picket fence!

Well done, very smart. Reminds me of my mother,God rest her soul. She loved her white picket fence, and could be seen often painting it. It was so long ( it went right around a corner block) By the time she got to the end, she had to start again. I think she was always stopping to make tea and talk to neighbours x

That is a beautiful fence and so sparkly white!! Perfect against the green house with the white shutters. Very nice.
