What to put here….

I thought we could keep our birch tree, but after removing stuff all around it, we saw that the trunk was hollowed out. The bushes really need to come out too, but then we feel so exposed! Let’s back up though, here is what it looked like before:

James kindly busted out his new chainsaw (thanks, Grandpa!) and after some quick work, we were left with this:

It’s quite open now! We don’t like it, haha. However, we have to figure out fencing and what to replace the plants with that won’t overwhelm the space, etc. We’re having fun doing some research in any case, so that’s a plus! The weekend was pretty low key since I got full blown sick on Sunday. Thankfully we had lovely weather, so the kids were able to play a lot outside. They really do need to run around sometimes, don’t they?!?

Not sure what’s in store for this week….we’ll keep you posted!
