After a couple years of putting the backyard on the bottom of 'our list' of home improvements, Geoff and I decided it was high-time we finally make it a little more enjoyable out there and a little less... of a rectangle of unshaded grass. We just decided this today of course, so we got as far as Home Depot where we bought a picnic table for the patio and brainstormed some quick, cheap ideas. (Any playground suggestions/garden tips/heck..even fun sprinkler attachments you recommend?) We got home, set up the table, and celebrated the beginning of our backyard makeover by grilling a Summer-y dinner and eating outside in our suits. (It's the only way we could have survived out there!) Combine that with Ivy's plastic pool and the hose she was playing with and you can say things were kept pretty classy. ;) Can't wait for more patio dining this Summer, and obviously, even more so for patio dining in the Winter months!
