When I look at our backyard today its hard to believe that a few short years ago it was just a small patio and grass. Apart from the pool we have 3 seating areas, a kids swing, an adult swing, shed and the grill. Unbelievable. I love that we still have some yard area for Seth to play ball in. I never understood the hype about outdoor space, but now that we have some I completely get it- it's an extension of your home that has a different feel to it.
