I know Mother’s Day was a couple weeks ago, but this past weekend was when I redeemed my gift. My husband and boys gave me a gift certificate for a local nursery and their help in the yard for a day.
Kyle did the tree planting. We have very rocky soil and he dug for days! We bought two new trees in the hopes that one day we’ll have a bit more shade in the backyard.
Connar doesn’t really like yard work, so he tackled the backyard toy box! He sorted, cleaned and replaced all the intact toys and threw a bunch away. Now we have room to get a few new backyard games! Connar did help with planting tomatoes at the end of the day (for a few minutes at least)
Aiden told me later, “I fell in love with planting today Mommy!”. He was my right hand man while we transplanted a couple things and put in some new perennials. He also took sole charge of a new pansy patch!
New trees…new tomatoes & strawberries…new perennials and most importantly…
Happy daisies…my flowers beds have different varieties of daisies and daisy-like flowers throughout…all summer I have daisies. I had so much fun working in our yard with my boys, it was a very happy Mother’s Day.
What new adventures have you had with your family?
