Portrait of Daddy...

Bryanna and I were in the backyard yesterday and she saw an imprint in the dirt from a bucket...and she said...

Bry: "Look mamma! A circle!"
Me: "Let's make a smiley face!"

Me: "Look, Bryanna, he's smiling now!"
Bry: "That looks like my daddy!"
As soon as she said that I had to grab my camera!! I was laughing so hard!!

A new way to watch cartoons...


Maddox's hand is looking better and better!

Finally, the heap of dirt and rocks are gone and the planters are filled, and I'm so happy to report that the sprinkler system is DONE!

The curbing was crafted this morning.

I think we are ready for some grass back here!!!

The planter boxes are now ready to paint!

I am SO EXCITED to get some plants and trees back here...instead of a dirt backyard, it will be nice to have some life growing in the backyard! I think part of the fun of doing the backyard ourselves is, as our kids grow, we can see the difference watching all the beautiful shrubs and trees that will be growing as well!

Your yard is coming along so well! I'm so excited for you to have a nice green yard for the family to enjoy. I was so sad to hear about poor Maddox! I'm glad he is healing well.

You guys are doing such a good job on the back yard!! It looks like it will turn out great! (Back yards are a lot of work, but they are worth it!!)
Poor Maddox's hand still looks so painful! I hope it gets better soon! I still cant believe that he got burned so bad!
