Baby, House

What a jungle!!

July 25, 2011

So a good friend of ours helped us with some major projects this weekend.

One of them being getting rid of our massive “jungle” on the north side of our house. When we moved in, honestly it was okay but it was like the previous owners just planted everything they could on that side of the house. I asked a couple good buddies to come over Saturday morning to help us take the “jungle” out and I would pay them with a good all you can eat sushi lunch. And here’s a shot of the aftermath:

Yeah one of our friends says it looks like a tornado hit our front yard. I’d like to say, “Bonfire at our house!” but I don’t think the neighbors would approve. I would also like to say. . . “F-R-E-E Mulch!” But then I don’t think I’d get a lot of takers.

While the guys were busy getting taking the jungle out. . the womenfolk were busy tending to the chiclins. I stuck them in the back of my new truck for a bit and they seemed to just enjoy crawling around in the new space:

Are you a SL, UT local? Have you seen this on your trips out of SLC?? It’s pretty dang cool IMO.

    Gosh, I would have come cleaned up with you if I knew it meant sushi! As it was I had to clean my own yard and eat mac & cheese because it’s what the kiddos wanted and I was way too tired to cook two meals… I’ll get pictures up today of my big weekend yard project.

    I know history is good, and all that stuff, but I still would pick yardwork and sushi over pioneer reanactment…grin
