The House!... more photos and new stuff!

My Aunt Terry was really sweet and sent Kyle and I a house warming gift. It included a quilt and pillow shams that she made! Here they are on our bed: I promised Terry some house tour photos, so here they are:

Kitchen: Dining Room: Spare Bedroom!: Come visit!

Mount Antero

Kyle and I climbed Mount Antero (14,276 feet high) with great friends a few weekends ago. The fall colors were amazing and there wasn't too much snow. We had a great time! The Group:
We camped out for this trip; it was a blast. Here is Kyle looking stylish courtesy of Jack:

The Playhouse

When I was a little girl, one of my best friends had a playhouse. We spent a lot of time in that house; it had a table and chairs, and some kitchen toys. It also had windows that opened, and a split front door, so that you could open one half at a time.

Our new house came with a playhouse! And it is pretty stinking cute.
This playhouse also has a double decker deck, complete with slide!
The only thing is that this slide has too much kick, so I think we are going to change out the slide... and also modify the railing on the upper deck... yikes!

This is what we are thinking for the new slide:

Kyle also wants a homemade version of one of these (I think we could make a away cooler version):
I can't wait to pick out things for the inside!

The House!

I think I'm going to blog about the yard. It is pretty awesome... I've already started decorating, and Kyle and I went to a local garden store. Our flower gardens already have several perennials, so there isn't too much that we 'have' to do... hopefully we can keep up with it. Bailey seems to like my decor. ;)

This is the patio, and it has some really cool features. For one, the planting is great. It also has a water feature.

Sorry, the water feature isn't running in this photo, but it is a little easier to see:

There is definitely a project spot:

I love the backyard arbor:

The side-yard arbor was home made; I think it needs a little reinforcing:

We have the 2011 food garden off to a start!

Check out the front garden beds:

Kyle is working on the drip system for the plants. I'm going to go see if he needs any help...

The Dog Days of Summer

Well, we made it past Mother's Day; usually I say that it might snow up until then. I'm ready for summer, myself. This is a photo of Bailey and Keelin, about this time last year. As you can tell, they love summer too.

New Blog

Well, we bought a new house, so I thought it might be time to start a blog. Unfortunately, we are waiting to close on the property; however we are lucky enough to have good friends that were willing to take us in for the interim (no matter how much cacaos we add)!

Will it be worth the wait? YES! This is the backyard and beyond!

This is the beginning of a majestic adventure!
