Dreaming of a Cool Outdoor Space

After three years our girls took one last picture and then waved goodbye to their old playset. The playset we bought for their birthdays several years ago has been an awesome piece of equipment, but it was slowly deteriorating and taking on a rather large lean. It would start to shake back and forth if the girls jumped on the swingset. Doesn't make a mama feel very safe when you see the large structure swaying back and forth with your children along for the ride. So, it was time. The playset went to a new happy home and we were left with a rather large chunk of square dirt and dead grass. I know it's definitely not the season to be re-doing our yard, but I can't help but dream about a really cool outdoor space next Spring. We planned on putting in some raised beds so that we can grow tomatoes, lettuce, zucchini, etc, but I also have been seeing so many different cool outdoor ideas on Pinterest lately, that it really got my brain thinking about the possibilities of our great backyard. Here are a few ideas that I am really loving:

How awesome are these!!!!

Great kiddo project and we seem to go through a lot of rolls with three girls in the house.

Ok, ok, this last one was a little far fetched for our little backyard, but you get the jist.
