This sweet day this year started and ended really nicely. In the morning, we sat out in our backyard garden together for a very long time to enjoy the fresh, cool morning air, our plants and the birds. There are two birds who are nesting in our backyard. They have an egg together which will hatch into a baby bird soon, we hope. Daddy held James up to look at the egg inside the bird house the other day. James and Mommy named the bird couple Larry and Sherry.
About late morning, Jacob and James helped Daddy plant cucumber plants. They worked hard and did a good job. When the planting was done, we all went inside for lunch and rest.
After doing house chores and hanging out inside, we all drove to Lowes to buy a new watering hose, and some more flower plants for our backyard as well as the front of our house. This year we decided to invest in some pretty annuals and hanging flower baskets for livening up the front of our house. We came home from Lowes, potted our flowers, watered all our plants and ate dinner out in the backyard.
We went back inside at dusk for the boys to get ready for bed. After the boys had already slept, David and Lam went back outside into the backyard for more enjoyment. David was looking for earth worms and night crawlers while Lam admired the fireflies lighting up the whole field. The fireflies were very active last night.
All in all, a great Mother’s Day!
