Todd and I have been discussing putting a fence around our backyard for the past 6 months or so. At first, he really wasn't too crazy about the idea because it will change the look of our backyard. We back up to the woods and have a nice view of trees and the lake at the bottom of the hill from upstairs. We talked about it more and he started to get excited about the prospect of the fence. He met with a few builders to get some quotes and chose one to do the job last month.
They started the fence on Friday and finished it up late Tuesday afternoon. I am thrilled that we will have an area for the kids to be outside without having to worry about them running off or into the street. It will also be nice for Michael if he wants to go out for a few minutes without me. Todd and I are both happy with how it turned out and both kids seem to like it too.
