Every couple of years we put new bark in our backyard, where the chairs and picnic tables are. It makes it look so nice and clean and neat again.
But we have to dig out the old bark so it doesn’t get too high and go over the edges too much. This year, all that hard work, was mostly done by Siena and Lucas.
They did so good and worked really hard to make it happen. Because there were only few hours in between swimming or baseball. The rain was coming. And the bark chips had been delivered to our friends’ from yard and couldn’t leave them there for too long. The job had to be done.
And they did it all. Dug it all out. Placed it in the backyard. Wheelbarrows after wheelbarrows of cedar chips brought from few houses down. Almost 4 cubic yards of bark.
I helped with the hydration, of our first lemonade-rhubarb drink over ice. At the end, sore hands and muscles, with few blisters, and tired arms they saw their hard work look so beautiful, and for what they say, smelling so good too. Thanks to the youngest two in our family, we have a beautiful backyard sitting area, ready to be enjoyed many, many times by us and our friends. We are ready for spending our time out there. Thank you you two.
