And now my week in pictures.
The dirt we had to dig up before. That later on we decided we could have just left as is and built a raised patio. Which we totally would have been doing if we had found a rock in our yard as big as the neighbors.
Framed out patio. All we need now is sand and pavers.
Buddy spent pretty much all weekend outside. He really enjoyed the neighbors old stairs as a place to sit. And lay. And watch us do work.
My parents came out Sunday to help us out. This took a LOT longer than we'd planned and we were going to visit my brother so my dad came out and totally rocked out laying the pavers for us!
Patio! We worked really hard on this bad boy. And on the neighbors. I can't wait to enjoy it once the weather really warms up.
Did some work in the garden. These rocks came from the really gigantic rock we dug out of the neighbors yard when we were digging for our patios this weekend. I had enough to do this (2 layers, btw) and there are still plenty more! It was a huge rock!
Cheating on Lent. I feel guilty. But this was amazing so it's worth it. Plus, Lent is only 40 days and there are 47 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter so I feel like I get 7 cheat days. And I took one. Because Packs is open for the season. I'm really glad there's only 26 more days until Easter because I feel really guilty when I cheat. And honestly, this is the first year I've ever taken these cheat days.
