Wanna come see...

My new backyard haven?

You were all expecting something much more exciting, weren't you? Oh well, now that you are here let me show off my hubby's hard work.

Step outside my door onto my deck. Before we added the magical play land, we had a play house, kid's picnic table, and an older table that was rusted with some old chairs that the bee's made plenty of hives in. Now we have a new table to eat on with plenty of room for guests (wanna come?)....

Come down the stairs onto my new patio (poured by my amazing brother).

Don't forget to look at my pretty flower baskets my sil with a green thumb planted for me. Beautiful, yes?

Here is my new flower bed right off the side of the patio. I think it's lovely, and weed free for now. This makes me happy.

And here is our little arbor. You can imagine it made the princesses day, and they have already had many fun times with their friends here. I personally love this new addition!


The magical play land is just next to the patio. It's nice to be able to sit on the deck, and be far enough away that we aren't completely surrounded by the toys, but close enough that we can really keep our eyes on the ladies, and their many neighborhood friends.



Let's go way back to the edge of the yard, so you can see the bigger picture.


You like? We do!
Thanks to Travis, the many family members who helped, and the neighbors too!

So very lovely. Thanks for the tour. You'd think I could get off my fat butt and see it IRL.

Guess not.
