Missed a party but gained a yard

Today we were supposed to go to a double birthday party which was sure to be fun until my oldest decided to barf ALL OVER THE PLACE last night. As I disinfect the entire bathroom with Bleach she says "I never threw up before-It came out my nose and that is gross!" You got that right baby. After I finished cleaning her carpet on round 2 I think, she is really never sick. We are pretty lucky. Strange time to be thinking that!
This morning she announces she is better. I am not so willing to spread her swine flu around so we decide to stay home.
It worked out well. We got a huge amount of work done.
First we finished our 2 day project of edging the play area and filling it with sand.
So you can see the NO GRASS around our new fangled play space. Well now....

Nothing like a sunny day and a giant rototiller to take you from dirt to future grass. If you look back to Mother's Day 2008 we did this same thing and it failed terribly so we are trying again. We did all the leg work today and we plan on seeding tomorrow. Our mistake last time was letting the weeds take over before we got the seed down. If this doesn't work - Wood Chips!!!Finally-Another big job.

We loaded up all the grass/weeds and brought them to the leave dump, cleaned out a ton of crap to the dump, picked up a load of bird fertilizer and headed back home to till the garden area. Before:

After poop delivery:

Crap I forgot to take a final picture of the garden all turned over. Well tomorrow.

So now we just need to do a small/medium job out front. Watch for more photos to come.

Crap again, I forgot the YPD race tomorrow-90% chance of rain+haven't run all week = $!^*

It's starting to look like the victory garden out there!...Maybe we'll cancel our membership to Connamessett farms and just head over to your house this summer!
