Yard O Work......

We have had a great weekend so far.....Friday night we went to a bowling alley for Shawn's work, it was a fundraiser....the girls had a great time and even got to bowl a little.....so cute, I wish I had my camera, it was pretty cool they used a metal rack thingy to roll the ball down the lane.....the loved it.....and so did the people from Shawn's work....

Today we spent most of the day outside in the front and side yard....and made huge progress....we still have a ways to go but it will do for now until we start fertilizing and watering and mowing........the girls loved helping and being outside.....weeding was really fun for them, gotta love free labor......we got them some Dora/Diego gloves and little rakes.....today's tasks were moving the palms from the front to the side of the house and tidying up the front....
Here are some before pics.....Uncle Joel and Kiara.....and the girls.....of course Lila not much help....

And a few hours later.....we actually need 1-2 more bags of the white rocks for the bed....but it looks good for now....1st pic is the moved palms....



I am still planning on placing a bright colored pot in the rocks with a shade friendly plant but we have 1 more freeze coming this Monday night and then we can plant away!.......The side yard still has a ton of weeding to do but a little earth friendly herbicide will help with that......

Tomorrow we will be cleaning most of the day and folding the clean laundry that keeps getting done but not folded....and now I have the biggest pile of doom.....I swear its like 4 HUGE loads.....I did finally talk to Potterybarn and our bed frame for the guest bed shipped out Friday night.......so I will take pics of the guest bed all put together after I get it....Woohooo!.....any I am out for now.....

Sounds like a fun day! It's always great to get things done and it looks great! Hope the bed makes it in time for your mom, sounds like an awesome guest room, can't wait to see pictures. Hope you had a great Sunday.
