move...that....SHED!!!

We love our shed. Really. We do. It's a fabulous place to store all of our tools. Who wouldn't want a shed like this?

But when the previous owners of our house (who also happen to be our current next door NEIGHBORS! how funny is that!!) put the shed directly behind the house & it blocked off the entire view of our backyard, it was time to MOVE.THAT.SHED!


So the pro's came to move it this morning as our family watched with bated breath!


I was SO riveted by the action while doing playdough outside at my table. (please pardon all the junk on the porch-- we had to empty the entire shed before it could be moved...we're not THAT big of pack rats! ha!)


As I watched, here were a few of my observations:

  • "It's not working, Daddy!" (when they'd stop the truck)
  • "Girl, are you digging for a snake?" I said to the woman who was assisting while she shoveled up some rocks. When she finished digging, I was sure to tell her a big: "Thank you!"
  • "They going to move that SHED!"

And they DID! Now it rests toward the edge of our property in its new home.


And once we fill in the dirt with some new grass, we'll have a beautiful unobstructed view of our backyard! YAY! (all it will need now is a nice little swingset for ME, don't ya think??) :)

    A swing set with a slide would be great, don't you think Caroline? We'll have to see what can be done about that! The pics were great.

    Love y'all,
