I just think it is so funny how things change when you grow up, get married, buy a house and so on. Kip and I used to think our mother's and fater's were fibbing to us whey they would say they want new plants for the backyard, or a new kitchen appliance for their birthday's, NOW WE UNDERSTAND!!!! There was no fibbing going on at all!
So for Kipper's Birthday I kept asking him what he wanted, his answer every time was that he just wanted to get his backyard done.
Well we were not able to fufill his entire wish of the backyard being completed but we did get a HUGE start! For my birthday we will finnish it off, becuause, you guessed it, that is what I want for my birthday as well.
Here are the gifts that Kipper recieved, GROWN UP GIFTS, and we are SO, SO, SO, Happy for them!
A Weed Wacker that we BADLY NEEDED!! Thanks so much Clint for loaning yours to us up to this point. We are so happy to start wacking our weeds with our new toy!
A blower, but don't be fooled, it sucks too! I personally think this is the best way to clean off your patio. Sweeping takes WAY TO LONG and is such effort. Why sweep when you can just blow the mess away?
Yippy!!!! We have a patio!!!!! We are so, so, so happy to have a patio. This is going to help reduce the dirt that makes it's way into my house via our feet and our dirty dog! I am also so excited about the decrease in dust. Can't wait for the grass to be in and then there will be no dirt left!!! YEAH!!!
We need to wait a month to seal the concrete so all the moisture evaporates first. It is going to look way better once it is sealed. The color will stand out much, much more and it is going to have more of a wet glossy look to it. We can't wait for it to be done, done.
This is how the sides of the house look. We decided not to do the stamp down the sides, just the texture with a smooth strip every once in a while. I am really happy with how it turned out!
I could not resist a few of the puppy Echo posing. He is growing up so much, but the ears are still not standing on their own darn it. Time to tape them up again. I sure hope they stand forever some day????
