This is what it was when we moved in! So the above is quite an improvement.
At least we spruced it up with an umbrella and new chairs for our table.
FINALLY, we are working on putting in a real patio. We decided on pavers, but that requires a lot of digging for the kids and I since Dr. C can't do that part. (Shoulder surgery last March.)
There was a small concrete area that needed to be removed also. Can you tell how thrilled the kids are to help?
C doesn't mind too much, it's L that can't stand doing any physical work. She cries and claims injury every time she has to clean her room. She does, however, like to pose for a picture.
Then I got to do all the heavy lifting and dumping in the trailer for the dump.
Doing the work that way was quite a big job for us, so Dr. C decided to barrow this little handy tractor from his uncle. This makes the work go a bit faster.
And allows the kids time to spend the day in their jammies making origami things.
Hopefully in a month, I'll be able to show you the finished paver patio. That is if we can decide what color to use.
