All that was missing was the much anticipated hammock—my main selling point when I first broached the subject of jungle gym eradication with the boys.
Now, the whole family loves our revamped backyard. The boys play games, read books, watch movies (on the laptop), and snuggle with Mama on breezy summer afternoons. It's perfect!
But, as is all too often the case, I already have a list of additions developing in my head for next year. Number one on my list is a new dining set. (You can see some more of my picks in the sidebar.)
I guess it's time to start saving my pennies! But for now, I'm savoring family time and quiet time in our shady backyard oasis.
