Before and After

We began on Thursday morning with a trip to a wholesale nursery.  Stephen borrowed a 16' foot long trailor and completely filled it stacking plants on it and filling the inside of the truck.  By lunchtime we nearly had it unloaded and positioned.  We did as much as we could with two kids running around the backyard and sometimes "helping."  But we decided it best if we hired an additional pair of hands to work on Friday.  The three of us worked hard until 6:00 that night.  Saturday, we completed the planting of all the perinnials that we had and did a good clean up.  We still aren't finished.  We are still missing several shrubs and all the flowers, but it looks so much better and I can't wait to see all these tiny little blooms spring forth with leaves.   

We enjoyed the view from the hot tub and watched Kendrick swim without a life jacket for the remainder of the evening.  Couldn't have been a better weekend.
