We came from a house where we didn't have much of a front yard, it sloped down and it was on a busy street. Now, we have a big front yard, with large trees, a long driveway for the kids to play on and we are on a cul de sac off a street that is not busy at all (only about 10 houses in our whole neighborhood). So, it is quite a big change--and we really didn't know what we were missing until we moved here. We are hoping too by spending so much time out in the front yard, we can get to know our neighbors better.
|I am thankful the previous owners left the two white Adirondack chairs. They are sort of falling apart, but we can repair them. If they wouldn't have left them, we wouldn't have known how nice it is to have them there.|
|I sit in these chairs a lot and watch the kids play. Last night, as I sat in one of the chairs, sweet Abbey joined me in the other chair for some precious chats.|
|And then there is, of course, the tree swing which we all love.|
|Swinging into the sunset. :-)|
|He is on....but didn't get there by himself. ;-)|
|It still feels pretty good to be up there.|
