Faux Spring

It's January and it's beautiful outside! After a little trip to Trader Joe's this morning (our store of choice when Ian isn't joining us because they have little shopping carts for Lennon to push around and stay busy) we ventured outside into the freshly mowed backyard.

I've been wanting to put a planter box in front of her playhouse for a while now and today seemed like a good day to do it, even though it will probably be too cold for the poppies we planted to sprout.

She took a short break from watering the seeds to do a little dance atop her wash tub.

Hazel slept through the entire process, including when I was wearing her while shoveling soil and turning the compost.

Lennon thought the nail guns were too loud.

After she watered her seeds she wasn't done playing with water, so she flipped the tub over and walked back and forth, back and forth, filling her watering can and pouring it out into the tub. It turns out she was planning on washing the dogs in it. She ran to the house and yelled through the doggy door for them to come out. When they did come out she tried to convince them to jump into the water. They were not interested.

Our doggies are still stinky, but maybe if we're lucky we'll have some flowers growing soon.

your blog posts are like little treasured gifts to me.

you are amazing. to be outside with both kids, helping one to plant flower seeds, at the same time turning the soil whilst holding the baby in a sling - AND taking pictures to photo-journal the activities. AND being in the moment with your girls.

you ROCK, mama.
