Backyard Developments

We have offically made our mark in the territory surrounding our new home. I have been planning our backyard for months now and this week constuction commenced. The cement is dry and tomorrow the guys will come clean it up more. Then the landscaper will come do his thing. It has been so fun seeing something I created on paper come to life in 3D. Here are some photos of the progress:

The girls and Jon and I made our mark here.
Even little Camille's hand print is there. Can you see it?
This is the bike path for the kids to ride on.
We will have a veggie planter, fake grass and a playhouse
where the dirt is in the middle when we are done.

This structure will surround the portable spa we have ordered.

The plan is to face this with cultured stone.

Steps up to the spa will also serve as a place to sit during parties.

Here is the arial view from the balcony of the spa hardscape. Party time is coming!
