Here is a picture of some of the beautiful blooming shrubs we have out in our back yard area alongside the house. The azaleas (I think that is what they are) are particularly pretty (they're yellow!) We've got some pretty nice landscaping! :)
Some day this summer, Travis is going to actually dig a fire pit out in the backyard, and we won't need the fire bowl on the pavers. Until then, though, we'll be able to have lovely backyard bonfires right on the patio!
