Saturday night fun: HUGE thanks to friends Paul and Julie for throwing all involved with the earthship a dinner party!  The food was amazing, fun times in the pool and playing darts, and there was about an hour of human pyramid shenanigans.  What a wonderful way for us to be able to spend time all together in a non-construction setting.

We never could finish the 6-base but this was pretty good!
