Before...and after!

John and I decided that we needed to do something to make our front garden area a little bit more manageable. We spent countless weekends trying to debride the garden without much success. We decided that we needed professional help. We first hired a hillbilly (I really wished I had a picture of him to share with you) to rearrange the randomly placed rocks into a retaining wall. After he took out almost every sprinkler head that we had, as well as a few of our neighbors, we decided we were done with him. We are really happy with the end result. Hopefully it makes the house a bit more appealing and we can get a few bites in the real estate market! Hopefully you will be able to tell which photos are the "before" and which ones are the "after".

Run, Bike, Swim

I just did my first triathalon and it was great. It was all because my sister did one about one month ago in Texas. She got me all fired up to give it a try. So...after 3 weeks of training I did it and I survived to tell about it. It was a 3 mile run, 10 mile bike, 300 m swim. I am not a big swimmer, so that was the hard part. Hopefully I will have a little more time to train before my next one. Thanks Krystle for lighting the fire!
