My dad is my hero. Not because of the sweet things he does for me and Brian, but because he’s an all-around wonderful person.
This weekend when Brian and I went to the beach with our friends, my dad also became my landscaping hero (as if he wasn’t already).
I knew he wanted to reapply black top to our driveway, so while we were away he came over and transformed our driveway.
This photo does not do our driveway justice. It is looking fly! Also, notice the rocks alongside of the driveway!? They are finished, too. Only took a few months and us paying someone to finish it. Oh well.
That would have been awesome in itself, but he didn’t stop there. He also removed our old well poll from the front yard, which I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it is.
But wait, there is more! He planted begonias in our landscaping and put out American flags around our house!
Isn’t he just awesome!? It was so nice to come home and be proud of the way my house looks, and my dad has been instrumental in making our house look great.
While I’m talking about the outside of my house, here are some pretty pictures of plants around the yard:
And here are my dead stumps!
Tonight we are tackling the lamp post. I’d bought a new post altogether (even though I told dad I should just spray paint the old one), but I’m going to return it. I spray painted the old one with black paint to make it look just like new. OK, it doesn’t really look like new up close, but who really examines a lamp post closely?
Here’s a shot of my house as a whole.
A HUGE thank you to my dad for all of the help and positive encouragement he’s given us to tackle the landscaping at our first home. It’s been a ton of work, but I am really proud of how far we’ve come.
