Justin and my dad had a very manly day... we rented a jackhammer to take out a bunch of concrete in the backyard, and then later in the day Justin got to use his truck and a chain to pull some trees out of the front yard. Between the power tools and the 4 wheel drive, he was in heaven, although also pretty sore the next day.
The jackhammer was harder (and heavier) than it looked, the fence along the side and the back came out pretty easily but the concrete around the post for the solar panel was a little more difficult. We were able to take the solar panel down, but just can't get the pole out- we took out at least a foot deep of concrete and the thing still won't budge. Maybe we'll get used to having a big pole in the backyard, or maybe we'll add a tether ball court!!
