I feel like I've said it a million times, but I love our backyard! This is our second summer here and I don't regret for an instant picking this house. We came from an apartment so that fact alone makes me jump for joy at even having a backyard at all. But this yard is the perfect size for us, not huge but manageable, and is surrounded by shade-providing trees.
This afternoon Primus had a friend over to play. I was
also asked at the last minute to babysit my friend's boys who are around Tertius'
age. So I rounded up all 6 kids (plus the baby), plenty of towels, Tertius'
little potty, a bunch of snacks, baby mush for Quartus, and other random
necessities and headed outside.
The big kids jumped right into the big blowup pool
and had a grand old time. My friend's kids splashed around with various buckets
and cups of water. And Quartus and I relaxed on a blanket in the shade with
the hose nearby so I could spray rugrats and keep buckets filled.
played out there for over 2 hours. It was a wonderful way to spend a summer
