What’s with the weather???

Well, I really shouldn’t complain… as we are enjoying this beautiful weather!  Matthew is definitely enjoying his outside time and is outdoors every second!  The minute we arrive home from dropping off Morgan at school, he heads immediately to the backyard while Ethan and I do some indoor housework.  After we pick up Morgan from school he and Morgan run to the backyard and play while Ethan naps…  While I am making dinner, they are still outside but now they have the company of Ethan.  Oh, I am enjoying this weather VERY much!  It is so nice to be able to listen to their laughter.  We’ve even brought out the jumper a couple of times!  What will I do when the rain really arrives???  Here’s to the beautiful weather…

Some early gardening…. you should know this face well by now!  🙂

They could have spent all day out there on their private island.

But we convinced them to move along – 30 minutes later!  So they sat and watched the ducks, geese, and coots swimmng around.

Afterwards, we all stopped for a snack — beef jerky and apples anyone?
