Last night I picked up my phone and hit my Instagram app. Instantly a smile appeared on my face as these pictures of two of my grandsons popped up.
Many of you know that our youngest son, Dalan bought our previous home.
I love that their boys are enjoying the back yard that hubby and I created.
I remember the trip that we took down South to gather rocks for our pond and stream.
Dalan did take the pond out and converted it into a stream that recirculates. This way he doesn’t have to worry about one of those precious boys falling into the pond. A lot less upkeep too.
Will, the youngest is intrigued by the pebbles filling the stream. A bridge connects the deck to the backyard.
While 4 year old Jack was having fun playing by the water house. I built this little house years ago. With the help of my friend, Dolly and sister, Julie of course. Couldn’t have done it by myself!
Did you notice the red building in the background?
It was an old pioneer cabin we brought in and turned into a playhouse for our youngest daughter, Kylee.
Here are some pages from her scrapbook showing what it looked like.
Things have changed a lot over the years and now it has large trees on each side.
Lately Dalan and Samantha have been working on turning it into a clubhouse for boys. I can’t wait to see what they do.
Dalan has grandeosous ideas of having a slide come out of the upper loft.
They have been working hard on making some improvements in the yard. They took out a flower bed in a picket fence area that had become overrun with Golden Rod and made a sandbox area. They also rebuilt the garden grow boxes that had rotted after so many years. The home is now 25 years old and as we all know, the work in keeping a home looking good never ends!
At times I miss this home and the secluded back yard but I am so glad that my son and his wife and sons are now enjoying it.
Must admit, don’t miss raking bags full of leaves in the Fall.
