Just Add Lemonade

The patio: The view to the west:

Blinds down:
Many thanks to Collin and his dad for building this. I LOVE it. Collin and I spend every evening out here. It's even nicer at night when we turn on the christmas lights we hung up just under the eaves. I read while Collin strums his guitar. Or we just watch the sun go down. It's a great way to end the day.

looks awesome...one day if Kevin ever makes up his mind about how to do our backyard then we might finish it. oh...and I guess we need money too, and maybe a little Collin inspiration. Hope all is well with you guys.

That is so nice! I can't wait to have a real yard someday.
Does your husband ever do projects for people on the side for extra money? Just curious.

I saw it being built. It made more and more progress each day that I left for work. It was amazing! Collin is talented. :-) I'll have to actually stop by your house one of these days so I can enjoy it with you.
