We bought our house new, which means that certain things aren't included. Like curtains. There are a lot of windows to cover in a new house. Just sayin'.
We also had to finish our backyard. And after a surprisingly, uncharacteristically, wet spring, "landscaping" is even less fun than it sounds.
I'm happy to say that as of last weekend, the yard is DONE. Minus a bit more rock we need, and we need to paint the fence, but it's DONE. 1000 feet of sod, 20 tons of rock, sprinkler, 40-some fence posts... We're SO glad to be able to use the yard now!
As happy as Luke and I am, the kids are ecstatic. It's so nice to be able to eat dinner outside and just PLAY!
