We’ve had a dirt backyard since we moved into our home in May.  Anyone with small kids knows that’s not an ideal situation to have for long and we are more than ready to have a usable yard.  Our new yard is small but we hope to be able to get everything we’re looking for and have been backyard dreamin’ for quite awhile.

Our home has a good sized covered patio perfect for a table and plenty of chairs for meals outside.  In our actual yard, we plan to put in a pool and grill and the rest is still up in the air.  We’ve been busy pinning backyards we like (you can follow along here) so we have some ideas when we talk with landscapers to come up with the backyard we’ve been dreaming about.

I’m excited to finally have a space to eat outside.  Eating lunch or dinner and playing in the pool outside with the kids are some of my favorite memories from previous summers.  They loved it when we brought food down to the pool and ate and swam but it wasn’t the most convenient thing to do at our old condo.  I’m so excited to do this in our new house and cannot wait to pick up some outdoor entertaining essentials.   I’ve had my eye on Crate and Barrel’s galvanized outdoor trays and acrylic dishes for a couple of years and can’t wait to have a use for them!  Dreaming of our new backyard has me almost (not quite since Arizona summers are LONG and HOT) missing summer.backyard entertaining
