We have wanted an outdoor space where the kids had a swing set, we had a deck, there was a basketball goal, and shady trees. A place where we could have cookouts and grown flowers. I big window to view it all and a place where the kids lived outside soaking up the fresh air. I am thrilled that we finally have this! Here is the view from our kitchen and dining room window:
and taken from the deck:
yes, they are in their pajamas
have you ever tried to take a picture of three kids in motion?
capturing a kid swinging is HARD!
For the last few years, I have tried to grow flowers, herbs, and even tomatoes. I blame our last backyard on being unsuccessful. The sun was blaring and there was no shade (though watering was also an issue). So far, I have been able to keep these plants alive for almost three weeks! That is a new personal record.
