Backyard Transformation

When we moved in, we inherited a rock/weed/mud pit for the side yard.  We were happy to ignore that mess as the backyard was pretty much Percy's domain.  This year, Little Girl loves being outside.  I love it cause I can relax on the porch while she entertains herself hunting bugs and examining rocks.  Oh yeah, and pulling out all my flowers and drinking out of Percy's water bowl.  Ben said he caught her chewing on a beetle today.

Anyway, it became clear that this was the year to make the change.

So much better, right?  We have a few plans for next year, but we are pretty well done for now.  It is time to relax and enjoy!
