A fence!

When Scott and I bought our house, we knew it needed a fence.  There was a back fence, and a half wrought iron fence that the neighbors had on one side, but the rest was completely open.  At the time of moving in, we only had our two little dogs, Chewy and Kaya.  Luckily, they are both decently well behaved and didn't leave the backyard when they were outside.

Fast forward about 6 months, and Baker came home with us.  After a couple of accidental times when he slipped his way off his cable system in the backyard, we'd find him running madly around the golf course about 3 holes up.  After one too many escapes, we decided it was finally time to build a fence.  And then winter came and we had to wait.  It seemed as if each time we went to get materials to start building, a snow storm would come.  Finally in April, we figured it would be time to build the fence, seeing as how it's spring and all.  But nope.  Mother nature had other plans.  We were hit with 7 snow storms since March 1st, each preventing our much wanted fence from being built.  And despite our 80+ degree weekend, we have another one on the way tomorrow.

Despite all the set backs, the boys FINALLY were able to get the fence complete!

It really is the little things in life :-)

The dogs are happy.  The humans are happy.  Everyone is happy!  The fence was finished just in time for our BBQ this upcoming weekend to celebrate my graduation.  That's right, I am officially graduating from college! 4 schools, 2 states and 6 years is all it took to earn 2 bachelors degrees ;-)

Better late than never!
