A glimpse into our crazy life

Patio finished!! November 17, 2009

Sorry to leave everyone wondering if we actually finished up our backyard.  We completed it a couple weeks ago, but haven’t taken the time to put the picts on the blog.  Trips to St. Louis, Chicago, and a Styx/REO Speedwagon concert got in the way.  :)  As you can see, our yard is now landscaped.  We had a number of existing plants transplated (including two trees) and sod layed down.  The patio took two full days to complete and a few extra evenings of working in the dark to finish the walkway.  I’m now very proficient at making angle cuts with a circular saw!  We have a 12′ and 16′ circle which will eventually hold some patio furniture and a new grill (I hope).   Appreciation goes out to our amazing neighbors for use of a few key tools and their tolerance of our noise. 
Volleyball season officially ended last weekend so Emily has a husband again for a few months.  We’ll be heading up to Chicago for T-giving and look forward to spending time with family and friends.  Hope you all have a good turkey day too!
