An Outdoor Adventure!

7 Jul

Whew! What a weekend! We have been doing house work almost all weekend and today I made a HUGE change up in our front yard. Since we don’t have the budget to do serious major changes in our front yard we decided to do what we could with it until then!

As you can tell everything is a little bit overgrown and chaotic. Don’t you just love the crazy weeds growing taller than any of the other plants?!

Brian mowed the lawn and did the trimming which made the front look much better but I still had a lot of work ahead of me. I trimmed up all the bushes, pulled out all the weeds I could, and cleaned up a bit.

Emma played hide and seek behind the chair and colored with chalk on the sidewalk. I think she didn’t know what to do since we were both busy working!!

Here’s the halfway point! I’ve gotten most of the weeds up and most of the bushes trimmed. I started pulling out the bricks because they aren’t my favorite – I’ll explain what I’m going to do with them later.

And TADA! The for now finished front. All the bricks are gone and everything is cleaned up 😀 I’m so proud of all the hard work!!

078I brought all the bricks up on the patio in preparation for the next phase of their lives 😉

I’m going to buy some outdoor brick paint and turn these red bricks gray:

We’ll have to figure out which gray we like the most. We’ll also be painting the gray brick behind the bushes to match. I’m so excited!! Now I know why everyone gets so excited to do house projects! It’s hard work but it’s TOTALLY worth it!
