manic monday

Do you remember the song, Manic Monday by the Bangles? 
 I think of it often when I am waking up on Mondays and just want to stay in bed.  As a mom, I am not afforded that option but that's okay, I have my coffee to wake me up.  
How was your weekend?  We had a lovely weekend relaxing and enjoying the outdoors with our sons.  My mom arrived late Friday evening and we've been having a great time.  I am overjoyed to have her as are my sons.  Jake goes to her door every morning and lays on the floor waiting for her to wake up, it is a sweet sight.  I wish she lived closer so we could spend more time together!

This weekend was also a productive one because we had workers gutting our backyard.  When we moved into our home seven months ago the backyard had weeds 6-8 feet high, crumbled concrete and dirt.  We are finally getting around to phase one of our backyard redesign which equals new concrete {stained & stamped}, grass, plants, flowers and a organic garden of veggies & herbs {the little guys will have a hand in this}.  Here is our backyard when we moved in.

Here is what is to be done.  What do you think?  I'll post more pics soon on the progress made on the backyard!
