Under 12 Not Admitted

With a vacant lot to one side of us and zero landscaping on our property, we have been the gathering place for underage testosterone everywhere. There are lots of boys here ranging from age 3 to 14, but when it comes to our front yard age makes no difference. Unless your name is Josh and you're the 14-year-old who can catch air, then everybody else worships you:


For three months we have been the "cool house", not because I'm cool but because you can build ramps here. There goes Drew!



But as cute as these boys are, it's time to say "Party's Over!"



It's too late to install grass, so that will have to wait until spring, but here's what we have in the meantime. It's so nice to have something besides dirt!

Wow, we get two landscape jobs at the same time....we would send new photos of our place minus landscape, but I left my memory card in KY...one of these days! Looks great!

Love the evergreens! You may not have grass, but at least you can put up lights on the trees!

It really looks great.

Nice new "about me", but isn't Samantha 12?

Maybe it's not new...just never noticed it?

How fun! Looks like you have a lot of work left on the yard.. the house looks great! Boys and ramps, nothing better than that!

A beach with trees!!! Will the boys stay off that?
But seriously, love the big boulders and trees. I can just see them with lights on them.

That looks so good. I love your house.

It looks great, and considering the hassel, it was worth it! Thanks for the other night as well. My kids had a blast!

Looks like a pretty sweet ride there. You could catch some air. And you go out there and do some jumps when the kids are at school, right?

It has been such a long time since I got to ride my bike over a sweet jump! Josh is awesome! I'm probably his best friend.
