Bye bye driveway!

Wow, it's been a long time! Not that we haven't been busy with house projects-that's a constant with old houses...I've just been lazy keeping track of things and getting pictures on here.
The project of the moment (well, 1 of 3-lol) is finally getting rid of the driveway that ran diagnal across our backyard. We had flipped our garage door over a year ago to the alley for rear access so we'd have a large yard once all of that concrete was removed. It's a bigger, harder and heavier projet than we bet on-but isn't every project like that?
You'd never know that Chloe actually offered to help out by that look she's giving me. The kids have been great at picking the smaller chunks out and wheeling then to the pile with their kiddie wheelbarrow...
Doesn't look like we'll be parking inside the garage anytime soon, huh? That's about 1/4 of the drive-waiting for the city to come pick it up to use it for around the lake.

The best for last :) lol
The arial view of our backyard. It's ridiculous how much more room/grass we'll get once all of that is gone!There is still a good 5 ft toward the house you can't see-all the way over to that rickity fence-(replaced soon hopefully) and about 15 ft or so down the rear of the driveway next to the house.

Unfortunately we're at a standstill to haul until the city comes to haul away the 1st load.

If you look closely you can see the window boxes we just hung on the garage. We made some shutters that I need to finish sealing today and they'll be ready to hang :) Will show that soon.
