What a difference a year+ and lots of hard work makes

I'm calling the backyard complete! Next year we will do some more planting, but all the hard stuff (except for the fence I'm not sure will ever come) is finished!

Michael with the help of his dad did a great job on the pergola. I can't believe how great it looks. Well done guys.

This isn't even true before shot because at this point we had already graded the yard and poured the patio. You need to imagine a messy, muddy, uneven hole of a yard.

Now look at it! I don't even want to think about how much money we spent on it, but it's worth it. This yard is now a place to hang out and I think that baby Perry and I will be spending lots of time playing back here.
