Today I'm thankful for sunny days and the great outdoors. The kids actually let me sleep in until 7:00 this morning. Man, that felt good!
Eli and I played with the checkers, we all ate breakfast,
and then we headed outside for some play time.
Butterball (I mean Bandit) practised his tree climbing skills,
while I inhaled the sweet scent of lilacs,
and the kids played in the dirt. (Bayleigh made a mountain, while Eli shoveled more dirt on the pile and one of the cats chimed in with his version of assistance.) They were quite comical.
I spotted this teeny tiny flower in the middle of some leaves, and had to get a picture.
Then I played a little basketball . . .
checked on the garden (I LOVE asparagus!),
and admired the pretty flowers (weeds).
After our trip outdoors, a bath was in order and I spent the rest of the day cleaning house and editing photos. I've GOT to learn to limit myself on the numbers of photos I take per day. Editing is a nightmare, and it looks like another late night for me!
