Guess what – – I made it back from Dallas! It was a great time there, except for the whole flight-back-home-getting-canceled thing. But I’m back and frantically catching up on blogging.
Today I get the opportunity to write about our deck – wahoo! I LOVE our deck – it’s awesome, and a big part of why we bought this house. When house-hunting, we were ready to put an offer on another house we didn’t love (it was a time crunch) but decided to go through one last house – we walked from the front door, out the back deck door, checked out the deck and yard and said “change the paperwork – we’ll take this one instead!”
We use our deck for EVERYTHING! – – it is the go-to place for our family to gather outside. A very integral part of our home. It has 3 separate distinct areas – a main one, one off to the side that drops down a step where we have our picnic table, and a lower level deck. The main area has built in bench seating all the way around – it doesn’t get any better.
We love hosting BBQs and utilize the outdoor space all the time. The kids play out there all the time – no matter what time of year. I would love to add a pergola sometime in the future, but other than that, it’s perfect.
The fun of filling water balloons – the hose is right off our deck – perfect:
