4 More Goals Completed!
We have been working on our 101 in 1001 goals and gettin' it done! We have now completed 4 more goals!
One major goal we had was to redo the backyard....make it a fun place to hangout and a great place for Lilly to play. We have a really large yard and it was a HUGE weedy mess. So our goals, were to remove and replace the sprinklers in the backyard, lay new sod and add landscaping. The plan was to do all this ourselves but we just didn't have the time or energy. It is such a big backyard and trying to work on it when Lilly is sleeping was just really hard and it didn't give us enough time to get it done...so we hired out.
We are so happy with the yard....we love going out there and just lounging and watching Lilly swim in her little wading pool. We are definitely using the backyard WAY WAY WAY more now that it looks good....BBQ....swimming....lounging and playing. It is awesome!

Aaron doing some work...we did get rid of all the rocks around the entire backyard....that took forever!
The stone wall and corners is the landscaping we wanted...now we just have to add some flowers!
And finally, the latest goal accomplished...a major spring cleaning of the house! This takes WAY too much time with a wee one so I hired out for this too. But now the house is spic and span...all the way down to the baseboards! WOOHOO!
