Easter Weekend Landscaping Projects

This weekend Lisa & Jim, Ben's mom and step dad, came down from Ft. Worth to help us landscape and plant in our backyard. When we got Kingston we decided not to invest in any plants since we had no idea what he would ruin. So our backyard has been very neglected for 2 years.
And since we have a huge sport court cement slab, that I am sure someday our kids will enjoy,
but in the meantime basically our only view is cement! We are in major need of some green.
While the plants are small now, we are excited to see them grow over the next few years. We also planted creeping fig, an ivy that will grow over the fence! As well as a floweing vine on the fence outside of Annabelle's room.
Thanks to Lisa and Jim, for all the hard work, free labor and green thumbs! We couldn't have done it without you. And I also have to mention that not only did they come down to work
for the weekend they brought dinners and cooked them each night! Such a blessing! yeah for in laws!!


  1. Thank you for the sweet comments! It's our pleasure to come help.

    We'll find any excuse to come visit our grandchildren Annabelle and Kingston!

  2. Yay for plants!!!!!! It will be so fun to look at it while you spend time in Annabelle's room and watch it grow. We planted a jasmine vine 2 years ago and it has gotten so huge! I just love plants! Yay for baby bump pic too!
