The Backyard

First of all, Montrose has forgotten who it is!  We got a crazy downpour yesterday and then again today - right now.  Remember, Montrose, you are a desert.  But it's awesome.

Anyways, back to my post . . . our backyard.  Last year we started a tree-house in our backyard.  Ben built the foundation/flooring for it.  And that's as far as it got.

Well after lots of kids jumping off it onto the tramp, we decided it's time to start building and putting up the walls.  :)

So on Saturday Ben spent most of the day working on it.  I helped where I could - but really only a tiny bit.

Here's how it is coming along:
 It sort of looks finished from this point since you don't see the sides that aren't done.  Pretty cool!

 Ben loves the ladder - it's his favorite part.  :)

 The inside.  We've still got two sides to wall in (or whatever you call it).  Then put on the roof.  It's pretty awesome and the kids were super excited to see it coming along.  Just don't ask Miles to help.  He won't.

Another view.  The pole-thing sticking out will have a pulley on it . . . fun.

And here's our garden:
We planted basil (that really isn't taking off - our first time ever it hasn't done amazing), corn, tomatoes, some lettuce on the hay-bale (we'll see about that . . . ) and then beans -that are already starting to climb the archway trellis.  That huge plant is our rhubarb.  We've only made one pie this year!

Anyways, that's our backyard.  :)
