Yard Work Weekend

The weather was beautiful this weekend, so we began tackling… the yard.

Before kids, Steven and I enjoyed spending time on the weekend in the yard. It was nice to be outside spending time together. Then we had Matthew and it was hard enough to get from morning to evening, let alone go outside and weed. Adding David to the equation did not improve things.

But now the boys are both old enough to enjoy being outside. Watch out weeds, here we come!

Matthew helped with our first project – raking the front and filling in the gap in front of the foundation with rocks, and dirt. Then mulching it all over.


He decided the backhoe loader he got for Christmas was the right machine to help.


David enjoyed running up and down the driveway, the front walk, the sidewalk, and the neighbor’s driveway.


Daddy fought the stump….and the stump won.


Matthew helped by digging in the dirt nearby.


All the machines came out to play on Sunday afternoon.


Two trips to Lowes, 30 bags of mulch, a dozen bags each of rocks and dirt, two sore backs, and one fabulous weekend outside enjoying the warmth, the togetherness, and our yard.
