I helped out a little laying the pipe. This was actually kind of fun.
Instead of trying to hunt down men in our ward, Taylor ran up to Star Nursery and grabbed 5 guys to lay the sod. What could have taken all day and night, ended up getting finished in 3 hours. Amazing.
This guy cracked me up. When he saw me taking pictures of the backyard, he got down and posed as if he were laying grass. He thought it was so great that he grabbed his cell phone and had Taylor take a picture of him on it.
We're still not quite finished planting all the trees and bushes, but at least the holes are dug. I'll post a picture once Taylor gets finished with the dripper lines and we lay the final rock. All I really care about, however, is the grass. Once the kids can go out and run around on it, I'll be in heaven. I'm sure they feel pretty much the same. It's just amazing what some color can do to a backyard. I keep staring at it, so grateful we were able to get to it as soon as we did.
