Since the weather was nice here today (not too hot) we decided to take advantage of it and rip up part of the yard to put in a patio. So, here are some pictures of the work-in-progress, then Jesse decided it was time to help out. What fun that was!

I have a better idea, how about if I roll around in the dirt and flatten it for you?

All this work is making me tired. How about you fill me up? Or even, let me go inside and take an afternoon siesta!

The picture I love the most is the one where she has a big ole smile and a mouth full of dirt. She had so much fun. I can't tell you how many times we would say, "Jesse stop eating the dirt" or "Jesse, let that bug be!" (She would see a bug dive into the dirt and decide she had to go find it :rolleyes:)

We are ALL exhausted right now. Now that the weather is cooling down, we can get to our "projects". Tomorrow is cleaning day inside, finishing the yard work and the dreaded garage. :yuck:

Now she is all comfy spread out on the sofa!

I'll post pictures of the patio when all the stones settle. As of now, we tilled everything, wet it down, flattened everything, put the plastic weed killer down, then put the stones down, but some of them are still a little uneven, but in about a week or so after some hose downs or rain, it should be even. I'm so excited. We've been planning on doing this for about a year, but finally got around to doing it. It's been one of those "We'll do it next weekend". I know Jesse already loves it. My little dirty monster.

Alright, some updated patio pictures. It's still a work in progress, but getting there.

Now that I'm looking at the pictures, it really doesn't do it justice at all. It actually looks nice and roomy in person, not scrunched and crowded.

The other pictures is of the garden next to the patio that we extended out. We had to transplant everything so they are all readjusting and rerooting.

Hey no teasing Canadians with your sun and green grass! lol Not fair! *grumbles about snow on the ground*

Seriously though, the patio looks great! Love the bar area.

Party at your house!! :grouphug:

Thank you. We worked VERY hard on it. Those stones are heavy as poop! We are now working on a floating dock for the lake we live on. It's half way done. :frustrated: It's becoming a bigger pain in the butt than the patio.

But, sure party at our house anytime! Anyone is welcome here. Our doors are always open!
