Back Yard Adventures
Well, the back yard is finally shaping up for us. Last fall we had some guys come in and clear out the woods, taking down about 100 trees and tons of brush, roots and stumps, then bringing in some fill dirt and topsoil to smooth things out a bit. Next came a contractor to create a leveled-off play area for the kids, which turned out to be a walled-in “box” of sorts with 5-6 inches of wood chips for safer falls.
Anyway, Laura and Grandaddy got the thing together with a tiny bit of help from me and Jason and Scott have been having a blast with it, swinging pretty much every day it’s not pouring rain (and asking to go out and swing even then). Since we also added a fence, it means we can let the boys go nuts in the backyard without worrying about them wandering out front and into the street.
