OMG I want a BACK YARD...do you have any idea what I would do?

I would get a sprinkler for my kids to run through...

a pool for our "new" dog we get and a pool for the kiddos..and us to soak our feet in on hot days.

I would get a pressure washer attachement to wash off the deck, and I would have a hose to ACTUALLY wash my own car with (rather than go to the gas station car wash).

I would get a big as$ bbquer and BBQ all the time with friends/family over...BBQ'd food is my favorite! Right now I have an indoor grill, it takes forever like heat up a stalk of zucchini.

If I had a back yard, I would have a play set , maybe a play house or tree fort of some sort, climbing trees, and privacy! I could get lounger zero gravity chairs and read a book on a warm day and take a nap while my kids play out in the back yard.

My kids would get more exercise and I could kick them outside for an hour while I do dishes and not have to listen to them screaming in my ear!

I would jump rope and workout in the back yard and maybe get a trampoline (we'll see about that one). A rope swing or swing or heck tether ball or volleyball set. I would get one of those fancy portable canvas and metal square gazebos with netting and put a fancy lounger and table set inside to hang out in.

I might even get a fire pit (maybe when the kids are grown). Maybe I'd even make a mini herb garden (although I am not a gardener at all). BBQ's, back yard parties, a storage house for outdoor...I'd have so much fun with a yard!

AWWW THE JOYS OF LIVING IN A CONDO.......

I Wub My Family!

OH I would TOTALLY get one of those couch swings I could swing and nap on and tiki torches and outdoor lighting (solar lanterns).

I would put music on in the back yard and soak in the rays.

I would weed whack but forget mowing: that would be dh's job or dd's job. Raking leaves, may be okay if we get to play in them...

I want a back yard too! like a REAL one. we have 5 acres but its all dirt, cactus and weeds... snakes, scorpions, big biting ants, and NO SHADE. Our dog got bit by a rattle snake and died 3 weeks ago and I'm terrified to go outside anymore. terrified to let my son play outside. I want to move in to town where I can have grass and a fenced yard and trees. and not having to worry about something coming out and biting one of us. I hate it out here. I wish we never moved here. So I'm with  you on all the back yard dreams.

I wonder if you could build like a glass back yard porch or something with netting and stuff? I have no idea, I"m not back yard savvy and lucky I live in the NW, there's nothing here to get ya..
