When the littles begged and pleaded for a playset in the backyard Honey jumped right on that project. You see, this great neighborhood has one pretty major flaw - no playground! There are a couple nearby, but nothing in walking distance. So, we watched the sale flyers in the Sunday paper until we found an affordable option that wouldn't take over the entire back yard.
All was good and fine with the building of the thing (I mean, from the air conditioned comfort of my sofa all seemed good and fine) until Honey went to screw on the green and neon yellow topper to the "fort" (as the PCP likes to call it).
Lewis and Sheron for something a little sassier (and, lets face it, a lot less neon.) I was happy as a lark to come across a black and white polka dot indoor/outdoor fabric perfect for my project at only eight dollars a yard. Note: this is not the exact one I purchased.
1) Yes, my littles (and Bird) play outside half nekkid while I lounge on our newly decorated deck sipping on wine at the end of a loooong day with Honey. It's like a backyard hootenanny around here. I'm sure old Miss J was muttering all sorts of unmentionables under her breath.
2) My grass is admittedly horrendous. Embarrassingly so. Which is why I'm just totally tickled that we are getting new grass next week!!! Oh, and perhaps that will please the aforementioned Miss J for a day or two (until I bathe the kids in the sprinkler or check the mail in my nightgown again.)
Happy second day of Summer, y'all!
