Lawn, trees, and super fun playdate!

 If you've been past my house lately........... You may have noticed my lawn is looking a little dry.
Just so you know it is on purpose! I'm sure people are forming opinions about us, but oh well. So we talked about it last year and decided that since the ratio of weeds, is much bigger than grass in our front lawn that we would start from scratch. So chemlawn killed it. Then all Saturday we tore the dead stuff up, so now it looks like this:

But don't fear we are going to sod it asap. I mentioned we got some trees cut down. (At apparently a very good deal, accidentally.) This is before:
This is after: You can't tell as much in the picture, but it's a huge difference. We're going to put sod down where they were. An extra bonus, is now we can see the pretty mountains.

We had a great turn out for this month's play group. This is only half, I'm not sure why I never got a picture of the rest. (Mostly because I put my camera back so it wouldn't get wet and never got it back out.) Thanks for all of you who came, I think we all had fun.

Even some of the little babies made it out!

 I know I say this every month, but we'd love to see you all out next time, we had about 11 girls plus a bunch of kids, and it was lots of fun. (Again we go out the first Monday of every month.)

Looks like fun - Anna would have had a blast. I was really planning on coming...then remembered for some reason I don't have a bathing suit that fits. LOL. Good luck with the yard - you will have a beautiful place to hang out this summer!

I'm so sad I couldn't make it. I was planning on it but Scotlyn had a very bad day on Sunday and Sunday night. Not good. Church really cramps our style!!:) Can we go swimming again soon?

What a fun play group! I'm glad you've put something like that together, it's great to get out with other mom's isn't it?

Your place is really coming together, I'm excited to see all the changes next time we are out. It was also so fun to talk to all of you the other day! ;O)

Don't you just love yard work and it is work. It looks good and probably even better when you get it all done. What a fun playdate. That water park is awesome. I am going to miss that.
