Anyway, it's been a while and I've got a few things I'd love to blog on but today is just one of those somewhat quick sneak peek posts (well okay it's hardly a sneak peek- it's more of an overview) of some of the yard fun we've been doing over the past few days. I wanted to show our new party pit in it's nearly finished state and a few of my favorite corners so far.
**NOW... before I do...please remember one thing here. Our family doesn't feel crazy about doing yard work... I mean we can mow and that jazz but we aren't really into it if you know what I mean. Sometimes the cool of the evenings beckon me to a weeding frenzy, but that's about it for me. That said, there is a lot we'd still love to do, even more that we need to do, and most of which will probably never get done if I'm perfectly honest. I'll share some of those future ideas here... but this is SO real life so don't laugh at the places my son should have edged/weed-whacked and didn't or things that are crooked or not level or not painted correctly or finished and such. Again... real life, not Better Homes & Garden and I guarantee we can have just as much fun back there in that party pit as is, than if it was pristine and finished. Maybe MORE! Not pictured, we have a huge 15 foot trampoline in the center of our yard, a hammock my man got from his company, and a narrow side yard in the back where people throw balls and such.
(All photos were taken on my phone... because with less than an hour to get a post up, it works!)
House color was a custom match and door color is Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams.
these chairs from this post... and that refinished little free table in between them from this one. (Painted Sea Salt by SW and cushions sewed by me.)
a bench my man made me.
We have an herb garden box, a salad garden box, a veggie garden box and three cutting garden boxes with random mixes in them. (Please ignore the permanent flower bed with nothing in it but a lilac bush, a daisy plant and garden Nome. I do have plans for that still as the summer continues.
I've got a fun outdoor kid project happening soon and I'll hope to blog about that shortly.
Now I just need to host a party... More on that soon as soon as school lets out! Counting. the. days....
