Matt decided to make Dane a backyard out of our forest! We loved our trees but wanted a place for Dane to run and play (and we were sick of the trees depositing loads of debris on our deck). Matt had some help from a neighbor, his dad and Josh. Oh, and Dane, of course :-)
Matt using our neighbor's tree stand to cut down branches. You can't really tell by the picture, but he is probably 30 ft in the air.
Josh in the skid loader.
Our backyard before...Our backyard after. Yay!
View from our deck before...
And after...you can really see a difference if you look at the ground. And you can see our neighbor's house.
Dane doing his part...raising morale :-)
Thanking his Uncle Josh with a big "I'm gonna eat you face." Dane wore his John Deere shirt to match his Uncle (courtesy of Nana).
