It's ten minutes past seven and the kids are both in bed sound asleep already. They should be... we were outside enjoying every minute of sunshine we could today. We were pretty much out from noon till bedtime. It was so nice!! It really feels like summer is just around the corner...
Here's what our faux-summer day consisted of:
and more planting
(yes, she's watering our weeds)
The mama robin who made our house her home...
and her babies
first scrapes of the season
(Sawyer always has to help with everything!!)
and of course dining outside
And of course a nice long soak in the tub... after a full day of running and digging and climbing and fun, these kids were filthy!
Can you get any more summer-like than all that?!
My parents flew home last night. As great as is it to have them here, as well as all the family we've had visiting over the last month and a half... it was really nice to have some family time with just the four of us today. It seems like it's been a long time!
With grandparents or aunts here, the kids are all about them... "Gramma's going to tuck me in tonight Mom; Can I sit by Aunt Becky for lunch; No thanks, Grampa's going to read with me".
To have the kids actually want to play with us and to have them all to ourselves and such great weather to run around in and have so much fun all together today... it was really a great day.
I was pretty sick yesterday, and after being on drugs for 24 hours or so, I was feeling much better but still not totally up to par, so I didn't do as much playing around as I wanted to, but it was nice to sit out in the sun and watch the kids having so much fun being outside in shorts and bare feet!!
We're sure going to miss this great yard!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
