The Green Machine

A little over a month ago, we had a major lawn renovation here.  Our ridiculously neglected lawn was tilled up, graded and sod was laid.  I'll try to post before and after pictures of that soon.  This week, Jason ordered a reel lawn mower from Amazon.  It arrived today, and we spent the evening with the babies assembling it outside.

My beauty explores the grass.
After we assembled the mower, we gave it a go.  So far, it seems to work great.  It's obviously a very "green" mower, and we don't have to pay for gas or worry about smelling like a gas station after mowing the lawn.  I think this is going to work out swimmingly.

And after the babes were put to sleep, Jason went back out with me and helped me plant the 3 double knockout roses and the hydrangea that I bought at the Farmer's Market today.  (I would have bought a lot more, but my little car can only hold so much with the two babies and the double stroller.)  I really appreciate Jason staying out there with me until after 8 PM.  I know he would much rather be relaxing inside reading a running magazine.  =)  Thanks, sweetie!

  1. So cool! I love it. We sodded our lawn in Charlotte, and I just wanted to lie in our grass all the time. It looks beautiful, and your cute babies are so sweet playing on it.
