I don’t think I ever shared the new pergola with you all once we finished it! DH toiled for many weekends trying to get this thing up. It’s sole purpose? Holding Noah’s swing. Our swing is just a nice side effect of having the space to hang it.

We love it and so does Noah! Now that he’s older I find us outside more often than not, even if it’s a scorching 95 degrees out. With the swing, a sprinkler or two, and the baby pool we’re all set for hours of backyard fun. There are even some pretty flowers around to entertain momma and daddy. It’s definitely still a work in progress but I think it will always be. DH loves to tinker around out there and mess in the garden (he gets that from his momma). Noah and I get to reap the fruit of his labors!

  1. Thanks everyone. Obviously we’re really proud:) Now if I can just figure out how to rid the yard of mosquitos and gnats we’ll be in business (now we just sit out there with a fan running to keep them swarming us)

  2. Very impressive! It looks beautiful, swing & all :)

  3. Wow is right! What a great job! Your backyard looks fantastic! Mine looks like a before picture on HGTV :/
