...apparently we're rednecks...?

Some of you may not know, but we have a very small 'backyard.'

It's really more like a 'patch of dirt' in the 'back' of our home.

Anyway, it was really ugly when we moved in...just dirt and rocks and really big chunks of cement . I really wanted to put grass in so that I could actually go outside and have Wyatt play.

It was a nice thought.

But it didn't really end up working out. 

 We did end up seeding winter grass back in October, and it came in beautifully...we just didn't plan very well for what we would do when it grew...because, you know...grass grows. And it needs to be cut. But we didn't have a lawn mower, and to buy one for our 'patch' seemed a little...ridiculous.
Sooooo...by the time we (and by 'we,' I mean Jeff of course) finally cut it, the grass had turned into a jungle...so we had to use a weed-whacker to tackle the beast.
We whacked it just a few days ago--that's 5 months of growing, and it was probably just as tall as Wyatt. The rain from the day before had matted it down a little...
 Jeff was so embarrased and couldn't figure out why I would want to document this...
..he said, "You want everyone to know what rednecks we are?!"
Hahaha, I just laughed...


Better luck next time, patch of grass...

I love that first picture... with the grass up to his waist. I love grass... and yardwork, etc.

That is really intense grass! Can you borrow your neighbor's lawnmower or something?! That's crazy!
