My friend Sara and I have been working hard on the back of our playgroup building so the kids can play back there. We bought a sand table, two kiddie pools, planters, bubbles and sidewalk chalks and paint, and did some more cleaning. Here are 'before' and 'after' pictures. The 'after' picture was taken at our 'backyard pool party' earlier this week. The backyard is not fenced in and we had to nab a couple of escapees mid-flight, so our next project is building a barricade on each side of the 'yard'.
