Despite the regular spring time thunderstorms here in North Texas, the sunshine is peeping through and the temperatures are rising. One of my top projects for the summer is to make our backyard over for all things outdoor fun! With the baby on the way and due late August/early September, I won’t be able to get out much or take the boys to the pool by myself as the summer goes on, so I want to make our backyard a wonderland for the babies to enjoy. First up: fixing all the holes Dolly has created… and the water drip line she ripped out of the ground. And sending her to training camp, Sweet Baby Jesus. 😉 Then, the fun stuff! I hope to put in 24″ square cement pavers for an extended patio with pretty gravel or grass in between. This is also strategy to cover the parts of our yard the dogs run across the most that seem to die the fastest.
I can’t wait to get the babies a picnic table for them to play games on and do crafts at (and I don’t have to worry about it getting on my floor or table inside anymore!) + the play gym from Costco I have mentioned before! I also see the bounce house we bought last summer is back in stock and for about $100 less than we purchased it for. I linked it along with outdoor games and cute little odds and ends I found to make your backyard a dream oasis. I have gone back and forth on patio furniture for us for months but really love these below that I found for such good prices, and I would put the umbrella over the chair with ottoman on the extended pavers by the boys’ picnic table.
