I LOVE MY NEW FLOORS!

So, before Travis and I left on our cruise we bought some new flooring for the main level of our house. We didn't really like having carpet in the eating area and I was pretty convinced that I would never get all the dog hair out of the carpet (not my dog....the previous owners gross dog!) Well we were trying to match the wood laminate in the entry way and my uncle (who has been installing flooring for MANY years) came and looked at what they had down and told us that he thought it was cheap looking and that it wasn't laid correctly...so he suggested a flooring to buy and we got it. My mom talked with him about helping Travis and I install it but he happened to have time while we were on our cruise. So...he and my mom installed our new flooring while we were being spoiled on a cruise (kind of rude of us huh!!) I guess the installation went fairly smoothly minus the replacing of the sub-floor near the sliding glass door, I guess the dog peed there all the time and the floor was disintegrated. But, when we got home it was like extreme home makeover. I can't believe how great it looks, I LOVE it. I need to get a nice area rug but other than that all the painting is done downstairs, we put in a new light and now we have beautiful wood floors. A HUGE thanks to my mom and uncle. The best part is Ayda, when we lived with my mom she would slide all over my mom's wood floors. I am surprised her arms aren't so strong with how much she pulled herself around. My mom said once the floor was done Ayda dropped to her belly and started sliding. For the first few mornings we would come down stairs and Ayda would say, "oh I love this floor, oh it is lovely!" Here is Ayda doing her first slide and a couple others to show off how great it looks.

That is one good looking floor! It would the perfect floor to dance around the house on (one-track mind here!) I hope, someday, maybe I could come visit! ;) That'd be fun eh!?!
