We have a big patch of dirt and rocks and weeds between our house and garage. It's a huge muddy mess when it rains. Jonas and Ella love digging in it. It's NOT my favorite place. They are always getting dirty and then tracking it in the house. I made some money last weekend at my yard sale and with that money I'm going to lay patio pavers in this spot. The first step is to dig out about 2-3 inches and rake it level. As you can see I have lots of help!
