it was beautiful & super toasty satruday, so in between helping out where i could inside, the kids and i played outside. i finally got most of my plants and flowers planted. the kids discovered pupas or "poopas" (and brinley called them..) and caterpillers in the dirt. they played out side ALL DAY and loved every second of it. sorry arah, i'm a bad aunt. i did let brinely hang out in her swimsuit the whole time.
i love this pig. i tried having him inside last year, but he likes to be in the yard best. i don't blame him.
i am very pround of this little rock retaining wall. i've struggled with this little patch of dirt the whole time we've lived here. when we moved in, the yard was completly overgrown with shrubs and milion of little red lava rocks... it's taken awhile but i've finally gotten most of them out. merv built this little wall for me a few weekends ago because he can be sweet & he knows i love gardening, but i didn't want to take a picture until i had some flowers in my flower garden. so here it is:
isn't it straight?
also, i planted 2 tomoatos up front this year. this area gets tons of sun. my nice neighbors suprised me by bringing over the tomato plant prisons for them....
cody asking if he could water all the new plants this morning...he got these clothes all wet...but it was worth it.
