The grass isn't greener on the other side of the fence anymore



Check out my garden, I am so excited about it. I finally picked a red tomato,
but squished it before it even made it into the house! nice eh?


For many of you who aren't my neighbors, you may not know that we have been working on our back yard for a long long time. Some how out of everyone on our street we ended up with the most challenging back yard. Our first challange was that it was one massive slope, secondly we did most of the work ourselves, but worst of all we had to deal with frustrating contractors to build 4 retaining walls. What a nightmare! Any way, this last week we finally finished and layed sod. Oh and Justin built the kids a spectacular sand box. It's huge and only took 17 trips with the wheel barrow. He's my Hero! So the only projects left are to build one last fence on the east side, and to pour cement near the drive way! It feels so good to be done, and we can't wait to finally enjoy it. There's only two complaints though....
1- Now that we have grass, I would like to walk on it.
2- (this complaint is from kyle) "I want a Trampoline"!!
I'm just sayin'.....................

Your yard looks beautiful! Can't wait until we get to come down and actually see your new house. It was really nice to see you and the kids!

I'm so glad to see the grass, it really looks good! Justin did a really good job. But I have found out that I don't think the projects ever end....

All I can say is it must be real nice to have your very own yard! Still cooped up in a tiny apartment in Paris! Your kids are adorable just like you! Miss you girly! Someday we will get together again!! Tell Justin HELLO and I hope he is enjoying his job!
