Our backyard has taken a brutal beating this winter, what with all the snow and you know, freezing temperatures Utah has to offer. Once the first snowstorm hits in about October it’s like the yard has been a victim of natural disaster. Toys spend the winter entombed in snow exactly where they were dropped when the snow started falling. This time around I found a pair of shoes and a handful of socks under the thaw, classy like.
In addition to the natural beauty of snow devastation on the yard, Viktor has been doing a handful of renovation projects using the deck as his workspace. We ended up with a tile saw on an old plastic patio table we inherited when a friend moved. The only real improvement our yard has had in the last 9 months is the fence Viktor put in right before the snow fell; the only separation of church and state we have in this neighborhood.
However, over the weekend we renovated the backyard. We had a couple of delays when lightning struck the electrical pole in the backyard right before it started snowing AT THE END OF APRIL, but we muddled through and cleaned up our act a bit.
In fact we’re so classy now I won’t mind inviting friends over for a barbeque.
I’m so excited about the whole thing I don’t know what to do with myself.
P.S. This is a sponsored post. I paid for the kids though, and THEY were pricey. I’ll bet you can’t guess where I got everything for the renovation.
