Sun shining
Upper 70's
A perfect day

Church first
A nice long run outside
Digging in the front garden
75 Bulbs
35 Pots
Lots of pretty
Happy helpers
"I hep too, mama!" she says.
Picking up sticks
Don't eat the rocks!

Kicking the soccer ball
Riding bikes
Tossin' the football
Catch with the dog

More skipped naps
Busy soaking in the sun
Watching mama dig
Don't forget your sunscreen!

 Storms are rolling in, they say
Nothing but blue sky
And happy kids
"This is the best weekend ever!" he says.
Mama is happy too

Not used to the heat
We're all beat
Feels like summer
Full of mud
Showers and baths
Hamburgers on the grill
Full tummies

Snuggling to a movie
Thunderstorms roll in
Just in time

Looks like an awesome day to round out your fun weekend! Hard to believe that on Saturday you guys were chilly, then on Sunday, really hot and sunny! What a fun weekend.

Sounds like THE PERFECT day to me! Love it. We just saw the sun for the first time yesterday in over a week...and it's awesome! This weekend is supposed to be great too, I'm psyched. Hope you guys continue to have beautiful sunny days this week!

Sunshine, yay!!!

We are having a dreary spring around here, every once and a while the sun shines through and we all get excited and then it rains the next day, uggggg.

Sounds like perfection!

And, I always wear my bike helmet when in the garden:)

I just love your (what I assume to be) front lawn and yard.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
