Our Saturday

Well we are homeowners, so that means taking care of the yard. For those of you who have been to the house, you know that we have what you might call a small jungle on the side of the driveway. I had dug out about half of it this past fall and the other half has just been sitting there. I told Chad that the rose bushes needed to be gone before baseball, so we can actually go outside and not worry about Maddie running into one or grabbing a branch of one. So we decided that we would start the digging out process today. We started at about 10 and finished at 4:30, we did have about an hour and a half break when the girls needed lunch and then to be put down for their afternoon nap. Maddie spent half her time outside with us and the other half running back into the house to watch tv. Emma did spend some time outside in her saucer and then the rest of the time napping. We managed to get the rest of the jungle dug out and also the rest of the leaves in the front yard raked and bagged. We thought about it too late to take a before picture, but we did get some after pictures. Sorry they are a little dark, I wanted to take a shower and then I went out and took the pictures.

This is from the end of the driveway, the garage is on the upper left

This the view from inside the garage

All this trash is just the jungle. The black bags are two deep

Despite all of the work we did today, I feel good about our progress. Now we just have to decide what to do with the space. There are still a few rosebushes to take out in the backyard and the front. Those will have to wait until another day.
