Saturday

Saturday was just a perfect day. The weather was so beautiful that we didn't mind being outside all day doing yard work. Jermaine broke out the JD for the season's maiden voyage - all smiles!
Avery was a huge help in clearing the yard of the tree "parts" that Jermaine had chain-sawed down the day before. We lost two trees in the last storm - it's hard to believe that just a week ago the snow was so severe!

Dunkie Junkie: Amaya LOVED being outside all day, she also loved Jermaine's coffee.

Jer & Avery shovel mulch out of the truck bed. Smell the testosterone?

We capped the day off with a bonfire cookout at a neighbor's house (actually Shaun & Wendy's neighbors). Here Deb & Shaun "face" the flames in order to supply squishy marshmellows for the smores. ...the things adults do for their young..
It was a good day.

i guess all the DD iced coffee you drank while pregnant with amaya has caused her early addiction? ;-)

That looked dangerous! Wow, you guys are mulching and everything! Knowing us, we probably won't plant flowers until July...

What we do for the kids-My face melted off for a burnt marshmallow.

Great pictures! I imagine Avery will have a nice yard of his own someday.

The weather played us for fools last week and now you are in the 70's and 80's. Now, that is soooo wrong!

This blog does not field complaints about the weather from suckas in Florida.

So your “conscious” told you that you should “respect your mother”, seems like I’ve read that somewhere before….hmmmm….oh yeah, it was in list with, "thou shall not lie", "thou shall not steal", "thou shall not murder", "thou shall not cheat on your spouse", etc..) The One who created us wrote His commandments on our hearts – maybe that’s where your “conscious” got it from…
