Photo Extravaganza!

Well, if you were in need of some photos today, you came to the right place!  As promised, here are photos of our backyard renovation/landscape project.  In the space of one week, a crew of three demolished our old, rotting, retaining wall ... and replaced it with stone block.  They also tore up the old patio, putting down pavers ... and even replaced a little retaining wall in the front yard so that it would match the stone in the back.  It was great to come home each day and look in the yard to see what had changed - and everything changed so quickly! When the project manager called to apologize for the crew running behind schedule, we look at the yard, at each other, and then ... huh?!  Behind? Um.  Okay.  If you say so. (LOL)

A Work in Progress

 

Finished



The grass is now starting to grow back in ... everything looks really nice.  Thanks guys!

We got all the work done just in time for Mum's whirlwind visit.  The heat and humidity weren't fun to deal with, but we still managed to catch a few sights during Mum's stay.  Here's a few sneak peaks, along with my favorite photo of Mum and Stan:



I have scrappy pages to share, but need to get them in order, first.  So, on that note, I'll be back later!
