Ending of a Busy Day!

Today was a day full of lots of play and gardening in our backyard. I am very thankful for the house and lot that we have. We are on 1/2 acre in town and it is excellent for our family. Today the kids played and played with water. The older ones went back and forth from the Slip N Slide to the couple kiddie pools we have. Lucy played with everything, swinging, sliding, balls, pools and touching the water sprinkling from the slip n slide. While the kids were playing in the yard, I was able to get lots of weeding and pruning done on my multiple tomato plants. My garden is coming along nicely. Today I found my first green pepper, the kids were just as excited as me to see how God allows plants to grow into useful vegetables! My cucumbers are getting taller and taller too! The beans had a set back, the bunnies got to them. This past weekend we put additional chicken wire around our rabbit fence and it finally helped in keeping the wonderful creatures God created out of my garden... a.k.a. bunny buffet! After a very hot and sweaty day, the kids came in with some sunburn, after two dosings of sunscreen, I did forget to put sunscreen on the tops of Morgan's feet ~ fortunately the boys feet stayed sun free ~ however Logan's kneepits got a little red as well (too much slip n slide for him). Ethan shoulders got a little red and Lucy she was smart enough to take a nap for a couple hours and stay out of the sun. They all were very willing to go to bed by 8:45pm this evening. Overall, we had a very good day, did I mention I even got 3 loads of laundry done!

I have 3 pools, you are more than welcome to stop by for a swim, you will have to be responsible for your own sunscreen! (If you look close you can see them in one of the pics!)
