Tracy Durcholz of Ferdinand works with her husband, Mark, not pictured, to clear a spot for a shaded glider bench outside their home on Tuesday. The Durcholzes' daughter, Caroline, 4, has congenital heart disease and prefers the cooler shade when she is outside. "Mark says, 'anything for Caroline,'" Tracy said.

The patio will have a shaded seating area, one of several new shaded areas they are making to provide cooler outdoor spots for Mark's daughter, Caroline, 4, who has congenital heart disease.
