Yard Update

Well, I'd like to say that we are finished with the yard but that's not the case. There are always those things that need to be done before doing what we really want to do. Like for instance, having a stump ground up.

This is the damaged river burch we had cut back in the fall and I had to get rid of the stump before we could add more soil conditioner to the beds. The beds have too much clay, so Kent is going to come back and add the rich dirt and till one more time. That' okay because its giving me time to really think about what I want to plant.

Here is a picture of our side bed. I love it and want to design something that will tie into this existing bed. It is very natural and that is the look I am going for.

Kent did a great job on the sod, now if the moles will stay away! Ha! At our other house the moles really liked tearing up our front and back yards. As you can see in the picture, the monkey grass bed is gone, replaced with sod, and he created a new mailbox bed .

This morning I took a picture of Matt while we were playing Candy Land or the Candy game as he likes to call it. Max found a comfortable seat in the box to watch us play. Matt has really started enjoying games, so that is probably another reason why chores don't get done around here sometimes!  But I wouldn't take anything for the time with him. Chores can wait, but he can't! It's hard to believe our little man is going to be 4 this Friday. Ugh, that sounds so old. It really makes me sad. I just can't believe how fast he has grown up. This year Matt wanted to go back to Alabama to see Thomas the Train instead of a party, so that is what we are doing in a few weekends to celebrate his birthday. We are all looking forward to going back, even McKenzie!

The yard is shaping up! It won't be long before it will look like an official "Betty Cummings yard"~which means it will be beautiful!!
Matt, Davis use to like to play Chutes and Ladders~do you have that one?
