Park holes, playground, and frog

We walked around to check out the progress in the park. Emma found these huge holes and jumped right in! This is where they a building a picnic pavilion. 
Construction keeps moving along. The construction company has agreed with the town to only work Mon-Fri 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. That way the weekends are quiet. It's fine when school is in because we are all up before 7:00 am. However, construction on this park started right when school got out for the summer. That was a bit of a challenge for us. I have been lucky to sleep in until 7:30 before I am awoken by the noise. I'm glad that school is back in so I am not woken up by the work.

The playground equipment got delivered and they have been slowly putting it together. The company who made the playground equipment sent their own guys to assemble the playground. They did not know about the agreed upon work hours. They started before 6 am on Sat and Sun.  
 A few days later I woke up to this in my yard. They are tunneling under our driveway to run a power line from the box in our yard over to the picnic pavilion. They pulled out a few of my shrubs.  
 That night we found this toad on our driveway as we were pulling in. Thankfully, we did not run over him. He hopped off into the grass in time. He was about the size of my fist.
