This spring, we planted new grass in the dirt around it, leftover from where we dug out the area. It seems to be growing pretty full, and now we're just waiting for it to be a little thicker before we mow it.
Trent was really excited about some new solar lights he recently added to the walkway steps. They were on sale for a good price, and there were 2 in a package. Trent got 4 lights total - you just screw them onto the steps, and they are completely solar powered. No wiring or electrical installation required!
I don't know why Trent was so excited about adding these, but hey, it's the little things!
They probably weren't totally necessary, but they do add a nice little finishing touch to the walkway, and they look pretty cool at night.
Just for kicks, this is how Saleen feels about the lights...
She could stare at them all day. ;)
And I couldn't resist taking a picture of these two best buds sitting on the porch. They looked too cute sitting there together.
Saleen just turned 13 years old at the beginning of this month, yet she still likes to act like a pup sometimes. She's 13 years young, for sure. :)
