I have never had a backyard. I've always lived in apartments, townhouses, trailers, etc.... so now that we have one....even a rented one, I just can't contain my excitement.
I have a whole list of things I want to do in my new backyard:
1. backyard BBQ's, with friends and food and margaritas and lounging
2. speaking of lounging, laying out in the sun, reading a book will surely take up some of my days this year
3. a TRAMPOLINE!
7. running through sprinklers....I'm not sure we have sprinklers, but we have grass, so the chances are good
8. hanging a swing from the tree, maybe even a TIRE SWING!
9. letting my kids go outside and play
10. slip n slide and kiddie pool
I can hardly wait. But alas, it is January, and it is raining, so waiting is exactly what I have to do.
