Outside tour


Kelly's Korner is hosting outsides this week, this happens to be one of my favorite places here at the Bryant's. I hope you brought your swimsuit, and fishing pole!!

One of the reasons we bought this piece of land to build on was the lake behind our house, and the huge trees here on our property. I LOVE trees. We have had so much fun here outside, and made so many memories. The boys absolutely love to be outside. When it's nice out, that's where you will find us.

WARNING: tons of pictures! :)



See all the trees?......

We do love our pool, it was one of the best things we spent money on, we use it EVERY day in the summer. Behind the pool, is Charlie's Man pad!!

I love the view here.....

I have ordered a new umbrella, and chaise cushions, they haven't came in yet, so it will be more colorful here soon. This is the covered pavilion we added not to long ago....

The brick wall gives us lots of privacy......

Here is under the pavilion, we made a little sitting area, where I drink my coffee. Charlie had some tile work done over the concrete.

This is where the yummy grilling takes place, the Mac Daddy grill!!!







We slaved over this walkway, it was the heaviest rocks I have ever lifted. The walkway goes all the way to the front of the house.

Here's where the little people play....

This is the other reason I was telling you about why we chose this property. I LOVE this tree. He puts off so much shade in the hot summer. I get so excited every Spring when he starts leafing. When I look up at this tree, I see what a awesome God we serve and stand amazed at his creation.

I truly feel so blessed and couldn't be any happier here in Arkansas. I'm thankful that charlie and I get to raise our boys here and have so much fun with them.

I'm glad you stopped by, I can't wait to see all the other beautiful yards.

What a beautiful yard. I am here visiting for the first time but I will be back. You have a beautiful home. I too am a mom of 3 boys and my middle one is named Carson and turned 7 in May. In reading an older post I saw that your Carson turned 7 in April. I have enjoyed my visit. Happy 4th.
