The Big Reveal

After a 12 day journey, from a wedding to a house on a lake and then home, we came home to another house. Well, it felt like it anyway.
The backyard is totally transformed!
Yes, the pavers were done before we left, and the day we left wood for the pergola was delivered.








This is where we left to go our our niece's wedding....and while we were away we got a few updates from the contractor....



But that was while he was working....
When we got home....this is what we found....

Hubby and I had dinner last night with the kids out in our covered cool serene patio....
And this is breakfast....

After Hubby had finished his coffee, I got him to help me move stuff around a "touch"...
You see, the fountain wasn't there, and the BBQs were the first thing you saw coming out....
So, the BBQs are along the fence and the fountain is where it needs to go....


 The fountain, our anniversary present for our anniversary 4 years ago, sits here, so we had to move the table over a touch to accommodate it. This is a BIG patio...and we put it off for 26 years...
 Isn't it nice? It is even nicer for summer and fall heat...it blocks the heat and rays that used to pour into the family room.....Brings the inside temps down about 10 degrees!



Like the new chairs?? We were supposed to get them before the patio, but waiting was so much better. Our contractor accepted delivery for the chairs for us (that was a story in itself)...and now we have a perfect place to sit!
Hmm, guess I should figure out what is for dinner!
Have a great day!
Nancy
