When not in Denver, our weekends have been spent working on the yard. We took down small trees, pulled out huge bushes, and did a ton of weeding. (For my nephew - we'll put in more plants to replace them.) Our yard feels much larger now that you can actually see it.
Granted, this is only half the backyard, but, I'm still pleased. We've decided not to look at the other half for another two months or when the weather cools down a bit.
