Dirt, Dirt, And More DIRT!

We got started in a big way on our backyard this weekend. And by we I feel like I should clarify that Brad, Tammy, Dave, and Preston got started on the yard this weekend.

We They moved one side of our fence first. It moved forward to open up some space in the back and remove some hidden space in the front yard.

From there it got serious. Brad spent two days tilling up our ENTIRE backyard. My brother came over on Friday and helped him out for a couple of hours. Thank goodness because after doing it all day on Thursday (he had the day off) Brad's hands were hurting!

When the tilling was all said and done, it still wasn't done enough. It dirt was hard and needed something with a little more force. So they brought in a tractor! Preston couldn't have been more excited!


When the tractor left, we were left with this...


Not to be confused with how it looked when we moved in...


I did add a little pretty to the deck this weekend though. Something to help me deal with the next couple weeks or disaster!


I won't have any photos of what it'll look like when it's all said and done for a couple weeks but you can bet I will share them as soon as it's done! I'm that excited!

Sounds like a lot of work. Almost as much work as we have done in our backyard this year. :)
