what's going on in the backyard?

well, first off, it's pouring rain. wait, let me re-phrase that- "it's pouring rain!!!". this is good news. and since we never let good news spoil plans already made, here is what we're up to today:



i have cropped out the nudey moments. let's just say my husband is in the back, laying sod in his swim suit and the kids are nakey on the trampoline. we know how to celebrate a good rain, no?

and i'm busy preparing for my muddy friends. once they are pruned up beyond recognition, they are going to want to get cuddly warm.







not a bad place to be...

Rain? What's that exactly? Does it come from a hose? That's how we make mud -- the hose. But rain sounds nicer.

Hey, have you not seen the Handbook of Nature Study blog? I was referring to a tiny meme on someone's blog for Friday nature study posts, but the big one is here: http://handbookofnaturestudy.blogspot.com

Wow Mandi..that just about covers it for the area under your shade tree..hope the grass takes root happily. Thanks for sharing...good on ya for nakey trampoline jumping. ;-) You have caused me to reevaluate my mud situation in our yard(s). Need to find one! We had so much mud available in the country and with our landscaped yards, it is a challenge, but I am determined..thank you!

Thank you for clarifying John was in his bathing suit. I got a little nervous when you said you had to crop the nudeys out!

you are SMART! Stay inside, let the kids run naked outside, and be ready to get them clean and warm. We (my kids) love running around naked too!
