At the end of last summer we relandscaped our backyard to allow for more grass space. We wanted a little bigger of an area for a new baby to crawl (and eventually run) around and play. The grass has grown in from reseeding and while the occasional fern or daffodil pops up in the middle of the area, for the most part we reached our vision of a little grassy backyard area for Evan to play. The only downside to our landscaping last year was that we also had to remove our terribly invasive bamboo which provided shade to the yard. So our little grassy area is now the perfect place to tan- or burn if you're a baby!
To remedy this, Kiel helped me create a little fold up A frame tent (after seeing them all over Pinterest!) that I keep in my studio and pull out when we are in the yard. It's the perfect little place for Evan to hang out while we do yard work or eat on the patio. Read on for the instructions on how to make your own!
