Today I took down the rock climbing wall that I built for the kids a few years ago. The boys have really enjoyed it. It was great in our old back yard that was only good for peanut butter sandwiches and a slip and slide, and a rock wall. It was something that nobody else had, so it was cool. But, the kids have grown up, interests have changed and it's been just a weathered eye sore over in that part of the yard that no one uses anymore.
As much as it was a good feeling getting my yard cleaned up over there, it made me sad thinking about not having the rock wall. And it was crazy how it could come apart in a couple hours when it took a couple days to put together.
Now that it's gone though....I've got big plans which will include a cool brick fire pit area and raised garden boxes. Now I'm on the countdown to get rid of the big old swing set thing. D says that I have to wait until the day after Easter to take it down since he needs all the places he can get to hide his eggs. haha We'll see about that. :)
And....it's my yard! People keep telling me not to get rid of this or that. I can do what I want!! I'm happy with all the changes I've made in the yard so far. It was a beautiful yard to begin with, but now I've made it my yard. I'm quite content that the wall came tumbling down.
