I figured I’d share some throw back photos seeing I’ve been going through the albums. So here’s TBT for the week (throw back Thursday if you’re not “in the loop”)…
When I was a child, we lived in a home that my dad (a builder) designed then added onto later. Off the dining room he built a long deck that led straight to a gazebo, but if you turned to left off the deck there was a fenced in area for the dog to run. Now I realize how convenient it would be to have dog in a separate area to potty.
The gazebo was one of my favorite places to play because I was covered and away from bugs, but still outside. I used to setup “school” for my brother and other neighborhood kids or do tea parties with orange juice and crackers.
