Well we have finished working on the front yard. It took two days, a lot of blisters, broken finger nails, sore feet and hands, and a lot of hard work but we got it done. We really love doing yard work but we haven’t had a chance in the last few months between my surgery and all the rain so this was really fun and oddly relaxing. I promised I would post before and after pictures but it is just going to be after, I forgot to take some before. Oh well. Here you go.
Doesn’t Ryan look happy now that we’re done. I love this pic since his head covers the huge junk pile on the side of the house waiting for bulk pickup day in two weeks. Oh well you can’t have everything.
This is a side view of the house from the neighbors yard.
I took this picture just so you guys could see how massive the cactus in our front yard is. It is called a Pipe Organ cactus and in the late spring and summer it gets these huge dinner plate size white flowers that bloom only at night. I will have to take pictures for you in a couple of months. This cactus has been here since this house was built and is now one of the largest in the state.
This is my front entry way coming from the driveway. I love having the raised planters.
This is what you see when you turn the corner in the pic above. Ryan taking a break.
Here are a few of the boys being miserable since we don’t let them in the front when we are working. Can you believe Yoda can get his whole head through the gate? Actually last year he made it past his shoulders and then got stuck. I’m amazed he still does this.
Gandalf going Kujo on us cause he wants out. Can you see those claws? Yikes!
So there are the pictures. We had a great time but are now pooped. We are going to go play racquetball again just to loosen up our muscles and then its movie and nap time. Hope all of you have a wonderful day talk to you tomorrow. Or maybe later tonight. We shall see.
