Where We Play



Kelly' Korner is touring yards and garages today. I still want you to be my friend, so I am only going to show you our yard and skip the garage.

We lived across the street from this house and wanted to buy it because it had a big yard (which is hard to come by in our area). Our neighbors were retiring and moving so we told them we wanted the house.



We still have a list a mile long of projects that we want to do back here, but the house didn't come with a pot of gold, so we need to wait and save. Those are two things I am not good at.









The poles are for our volley ball/badminton net.







Blue always knows when I have my camera out and strikes a pose.

I got this old pink set at a garage sale a couple of years ago! I wish all garage sales were as fabulous.


Marcus planted a "salsa" garden.



We have lots of fun back here. Right now it's about a million and two degrees outside, so we are so thankful to have a pool.
This is Marcus and our nephew Ryan last summer:



Thanks for coming over!
I can't wait to see everyone else's yards so I can get some ideas!
