Fun in the Mud

Our land lords are currently repairing the sprinkler system for the house.  So, our backyard is a complete mess. It’s just dirt with a few patches of grass. Our task is to have a luscious green yard by the end of summer. Our daughters will be completely disappointed, because they love to make mud with just a little water and dirt. I was testing out the sprinklers today, and I created a mud wonderland for them. They were thoroughly entertained.

April Showers

“April showers bring May flowers.” We have all said this at some point in our lives. It has taken on a whole new meaning for me. I grew up in New Jersey and every April brought rain and lots of it. It would be a dreary month for a young child, but it brought beautiful May flowers. However, the past few days in Colorado has been a different story. Mother nature has brought us SNOW. I don’t think I have ever seen SNOW in April, especially after having a week of temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. Our daughters had fun in the snow this morning.
