Carson Surprises Taylor

A few weeks ago, Carson reached out to me asking for some design advice.  
Taylor mentioned that for her birthday she wanted to have a "Fire Pit Area" 
Knowing Taylor would be away at Girls Camp (August 8-11), 
Carson thought it would be fun to surprise her with it all finished when she got home. 

After brainstorming for a few days, we came up with a plan.  
so professional - crayons and all... haha

It was going to require Carson do A LOT of prep work.  
Ashley jumped in to help.
Then I volunteered my boys and on Friday August 10th, 
we BLITZED the ENTIRE YARD!
GO BIG OR GO HOME - is our motto.

Ashley and Carson did some final touch up work on Saturday morning 
(mowing the lawn, laying pea gravel, sweeping cement)
and had about 10 minutes to spare before Taylor got home.
She was thrilled!
I always say "it is EASY to serve KIND & APPRECIATIVE people"  
Taylor and Carson are both.  

I love the way it turned out. 






Thanks for letting us be a part of your surprise Carson!
Thanks Ashley for going ABOVE AND BEYOND per usual!
And Thank you to my hubby and boys for being willing to serve on a Friday afternoon.
