That's right - we are RECLAIMING OUR BACKYARD!!!
Owen rules the roost in our backyard and honestly, it's been great to have a huge porch for him to have shelter during rain, storms, etc. while we are away at work.
That also means our porch is covered in Owen's prize sticks he wants to show us and a bunch of other nasty crap that he drags in from the yard (i.e. buried dog collars from previous residents, or the Saint Joseph figurine that previous residents buried to try to voodoo someone into buying the house...the list goes on). So the porch has been a glorified dog kennel for the last year... and that's got to change!
My dad recently visited and he was going on and on about how he loved our house. And then he said, "But let me be clear. When I say your house looks good, that does NOT include your back porch."
So last night, we bought an outdoor dining table on Craigslist and I just had to share!
