Backyard Makeover - Phase 2

Phase 2 of our backyard makeover is under way, phase 2 consisted of pouring our new concrete and putting up our arbor. We got our new concrete poured in April and it turned out pretty good.  We let the concrete cure and settle before we started on the arbor.

We gathered friends together to come help us, it just so happened to be a super hot Saturday.  We started bright and early, I keep saying we but really I just sat back and watched my husband and our friends do it all.  I was the hostess making sure everyone had water & food at lunch time! We got the arbor built that day and put the wood on top for the roof, we still need to put the shingles on it and then it will be totally done.  It provides amazing shade though which is awesome because our dinning room use to get so dang hot and now it stays cool.  WINNING!  I guess we also still need to seal it and paint it white.  Our backyard is a slow process but were doing it as we get extra money.
 Phase 3 will consist of taking down the crappy shed, the old gross hot tub.  Leveling out the yard a little bit, adding sprinklers in for the new grass and getting ready to start the process of our building our pool.  The girls are super excited about the pool and it should be done and ready before next summer.  I'm just excited to have our backyard done so we can go out there as a family and enjoy it together.
