The backyard

This is for Linda, who keeps wanting to see pictures of the outside of the house.

Our backyard!

The double doors lead into the upstairs loft, with the three windows on the left being the nursery, the guest room on the right, and my husband's office above. Due to our location on a hill (front of house pictures coming later), the backyard is off of the bedroom floor, not our main living floor.

Plus with kids...

spray painting baby food jars craft

That was when I spray painted the sign in the library and the baby food jars to turn them into Mother's Day Vases. Funny story- my husband read the post about the vases and got really worried that he had missed Mother's Day! So sweet.

The next day we spray painted a few (three) nightstands in our big nightstand switcheroo.

We keep the lawn mower (a push mower) and play balls in this shed on the side. And before you ask, the week wacker has a detachable battery that is not housed with it so the kids don't play with it.
