Kelley's Wedding and the Secret Driveway

My step-sister Kelley was married a couple of weeks ago and here are some photos

We also were doing some work around the yard last weekend and found a driveway hidden under our walkway and side yard garden. It was only a few inches below the surface so we decided to uncover it, first the top soil, then the rocks and then the tar. It was time consuming, but in the end the side yard looks about ten times better.

Cut Down That Tree

Upon moving into our house back in the summer of 2007 we had considered cutting down this enormous pine tree which sits right next to the driveway. However after having a discussion with the neighbors it seemed best if we just left it up. Fast forward to the nasty ice storm of 2008. Huge limbs of the tree came down and busted up the smaller trees beneath it. All night long we lived in fear of a limb coming right into our bedroom. Once the storm cleared the yard was anything but clear. It was at that point we decided it was time to take the tree down.

Finally today after getting the yard surveyed to verify it was our tree, we had it cut down. Since it was an enormous tree it took four guys over five hours to take it down, but I am happy to say it is down. The yard is now so much brighter, I am really looking forward to a sunny day to see how bright it will really get. My favorite part is how you can actually see our house from the top of the street.
