SUNSHINE!!!

We have had WEEKS of rain here lately and I cannot tell you how excited we were yesterday afternoon when the sun finally came out!!!! So after dinner, I cut up a small watermelon and we went outside to enjoy the nice weather with a little golf and bubbles in the backyard!!






Funny story - Claire LOVES to go outside and find 4 leaf clovers (a past time her Aunt Tara taught her). We usually do not have many "weeds" in the backyard, but this spring many came up and Claire was having so much fun. So much that I asked Shane not to kill all of the clovers since she loved it. He thought I was crazy and did it anyway...well Claire was furious with her father and demanded an apology! Well, she was sooo happy when a few of them did not die and she had her clovers (she told him she won and he lost since they did not all die =)). Here she is with her Daddy and Oscar, looking for some good luck....
Have a good day!!!!

We finally have some sunshine today too!! We put up that same playset last spring...way worth the money (though i found out Anderson can climb the ladder at only 13 months old!)!

That is funny about the four leaf clovers. I used to look for them when I was little.
