We finally made a decision on driveway gravel and river rock won out (yay!). So we have had 8 yards of this beautiful stone delivered to us. I have shoveled about 1/2 a yard, the kids shoveled and moved about 1/4 of a yard and you can do the math on how much that left for Peter. It looks great and come this winter, hopefully our driveway and yard won't be such a mud pit. I love the look of this rock when it's wet, I love that we can walk on it barefoot and I love that it still keeps our driveway a permeable surface. With so many trees around and the amount of cement and asphalt in the city, I think it's really important to keep this kind of surface when possible. Plus, we won't be cursing in 5 years when the tree roots push up like we would be if we had cement. Win win all around. (Especially on the shoveling part - thanks babe!) Also - kids think hills of gravel are insanely fun. Seriously. All you new parents out there - buy your kid a yard of gravel. So. Much. Fun.
