A Day in the Yard

We spent the afternoon in the yard. It seems like ever since we moved into our home, our yard consumes a lot of our time. Between pulling and spraying weeds, mowing the grass, fertilizing, watering, trimming, planting, everything keeps us very busy. I decided I love having a yard but realize how much work it really is to maintain a home and yard. It was fun yesterday. We made it a family affair. I got the kids greased up with sunscreen. Haley rode her bike and played with the neighbor kids. Maya sat in her buggy and play house. Matt mowed and I did the weeds as I worked on a very well needed tan. What a fun family outing.

I agree. No one ever told me how hard it is to keep up a yard. Since having the baby, I haven't even been outside!. The grass is dying cuz a sprinkler is broken. Just one mor thing to do. Anyway--love the pics!
