Next project

Last week I told you I saw my husband coming down the driveway with a trailer full of trees - he has been wanting some trees forever!! We both feel like our house looks like it was dropped on the middle of 2 acres and it desperately needs some bigger trees!

Mind you, we've never really stayed in a house long enough to see trees get big, or our landscaping mature, but I'm hoping maybe this time we will!
When I opened the door to take pictures, Max ran outside - and he was scared to death of the 4-wheeler. Randy picked him up and put him in the wheelbarrow for a ride and right after I snapped this picture - Max jumped right out the back! We're lucky he didn't break his legs - that's a long way down!
After Randy set the trees around, he would sit and look at them for a while(I know the pic is dark - but I just had to show you) and then go move them around some more. I told him classical music would've helped inspire him!! This morning he was back out there moving them around again. Maybe he won't plant them and we'll start a new trend of landscaping you can rearrange! :-).
The outdoor kitchen is painted, tiled, grouted and waiting for the drop in barbeque that is coming on Thursday. I'm waiting to post pics of it done - I don't want to string you guys along too much - it'll lose the excitement!!

Have a great day - enjoy the sunshine - there's more coming! We are having friends for dinner on Sat. night to "christen" the new barbeque! Can't wait! Saturday is supposed to be 63 and sunny - make your plans now!!

Yea, I think I'm free Sat. night. Or were you just saying I should "make plans" as in my own???!!!

Love the trees and I'm with Randy on the just looking at them. I still have 4 trees in pots that I bought last year. Can't decide where they should go!

Have fun! Can't wait to see everything!

Now if only those trees would plant themselves while Randy is reflecting on the patio. Probably what Randy was thinking...
Looks good!
