Weekend & Fence Update

We bought our home just shy of 2 years ago. There were a lot of things on our list of things we needed to add, change and redo. One of the top items to add was a fence.

The main reason was for our first baby, Addis.

This is the first house that we have lived in that did not have a fence. She really was pretty good at staying around, but lately she has been running off. She always comes back, but I am not sure where she goes and it worries me to death. (remember she still is my fur baby) 

For an added bonus it gives Grace boundaries and makes me a lot more comfortable to leave her playing outside by herself so I can run inside and use the bathroom now and again. 

So needless to say, we NEED a fence! Initially I thought a white picket fence would look so sweet, but have you ever priced them!!! They are ridiculously expensive, so my next option was a slit rail fence. It will look good (hopefully) and blend into the background. 

As I have told you before, my husband is amazingly handy! He is putting in the fence for us. 

As you can see we are still in the preliminary stages, but prepping is most of the battle!

After working hard Friday and Saturday, we deserved a break and some much needed family time! We jumped in the car and headed to go for a hike. Nothing makes us feel better and get back on track than a good long hike.

Grace loves being outside, so you know she LOVES going hiking and hanging out with her daddy.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend too!


  1. SO cute!! Looks like a productive but fun weekend!

    1. It was fun and productive! Come and see us anytime!

  2. Addis will be so happy with the fence, and you won't have to stress over it anymore. I love a split rail fence. It reminds me of the country!
    I am so proud of you guys for loving the out of doors so very much. It is so very healthy. I love you all.
