Our backyard needs some work. The people that lived here before us had a dog, and there are patches that are worn out. Other places are discolored. It is growing uneven and had lots of weeds. But regardless, we are thrilled to have a place that is fenced in where the kids can play! Fences are a pretty common thing around here, but not as much in Ohio. It is so nice to open the back door and have a small patio. Even just having a slab of cement is better than not (like at our house in Ohio).
Last week when it had finally dried out a little back there, we grabbed all of the outside toys we could find in the garage and headed out to play.
Logan LOVES balls!
Olivia just wanted to color a dress
We played out there one day while Logan was napping. But I think we are going to have to have our time out there in the early morning or in the evenings. Otherwise the sun is just too much for our fair skin.

Since we've never had an area like this, we don't have any patio furniture. We'd like to eventually get some so we can enjoy meals outside.
The kids are enjoying it for sure!
