Yeah for Spring Weekend

15 Apr

It was so nice to spend time outside this weekend! Miss H was completely worn out by all the fresh air. We had friends over on Saturday and they all enjoyed the sand/water table that Miss H got for her birthday.

Mom came to visit in the afternoon. We grilled out, did yard work, ran around the yard and generally just enjoyed the weather. Sunday was more of the same!

Miss S watched over everyone.

She thinks the pile of tree roots is great for chewing.

Operation Yard Overhaul

15 Apr

We were excited that the inside of our house had been gutted but the outside had just been completely neglected! We knew when we bought this house that the yard needed major work. So, last fall we started the tree removal and the initial soil rejuvenation/seeding. Then, as spring approached we got quotes to actually make the yard look better. They started today on the back yard and it is already a HUGE improvement.

When we moved in.
