The back yard rocks away

On Sunday the contractors came and took away all the rock in the back yard. I am so happy about this, it was gross dirty rock! The previous owners had two big dogs and it was their poo box, so it was good riddance! Kaitlyn was terrified of the bobcat and climbed Auntie K as if she were a cat scampering up a tree. It was so funny to watch, but hard to see her so upset at the same time.

Once the tractor and trucks were gone and we had the topsoil brought in she was much happier to play in the dirt.

Dave also ripped up an old deck that was falling apart to make way for more lawn. I am excited to have grass and set up the swing set, I am sure K is missing it and E had yet to experience it!

Out walking our babies, Kaitlyn likes to do what mommy does so we walked together. Then back in the house she walked E too.

I just wanted to say thank you for pointing that video out to me on my blog. Yes it made me cry but its an true issue, we who have had a still birth would love to have a birth cert along with the death cert. Oh that would just make my day. Because I don't have my daughter alive to show off, I like to carry a picture of and show anyone who wants to. It make it seem like she's alive to me. I know shes in heaven safe in Jesus' arms and that is an comfort.

I know what you mean about the grass! I'm just waiting for it to grow in our yard. A swing set sounds nice, too. I know Mischievo would love to have one. We don't have one yet, but we have one of those heavy duty plastic slides that he can climb on. It even has like a little playhouse underneath.
