the latest project...

Chad and I have been chomping at the bit to make some changes to our yard. Last weekend, we took on our outdated pathway from the driveway to the porch. We weren't really feeling the circles. So we repurposed some flagstone from the backyard to re-create a new and improved walkway. We also installed new lights out front, the crooked 1970's ones had their day! We had a blast all working and playing as a family. Hud loved playing in the mud and shoveling dirt. Ford hung out on the grass and watched in his bouncer. Here's a few pics.
 Enjoying our weekends working together! Cj

Step 1. Agree the circles look ghetto.
Step 2. Dig'em out
Step 3. Plan the new spots for the flagstone
Step 4. Make a huge muddy mush of dirt,
then pretend your laying tile with flagstone,
using the mud as grout.
Step 5. Rinse off all the mud to reveal the new path!
