After The Rain
Last night we got a good rain. Nothing severe, but enough to water the trees, grass and wash the pollen away!
This morning I took a little walk through the wooded part of our yard. Our backyard used to look like this, not all of it, but most of it. The boys loved it. They cut trails through it and spent hours playing Marine Corps (my husband is a former Marine so they don't play Army,lol). We cleared alot of the woods out to fence a portion of the backyard in but wanted to keep some woods. And this photo is a portion of the woods we kept.
Taking a walk through there this morning was like, what I imagine, walking through the rain forest would be. There were birds singing, water drops falling from the trees, and it's already feeling humid out. It looks like we are in for a beautiful day!
Braden and Dalton have a baseball game today. Only 2 left of the season before their tournament. Their team, The Jayhawks, are undefeated so far! Keep your fingers crossed that they win the next 2 and we'll have a perfect season. Their team last year, The Hurricanes, were undefeated as well!
It's Memorial Weekend here in the US, which means we honor those who have lost their lives fighting for our country.
There will be alot of travel, backyard bbq's, and alot of police on the roads, so don't drink and drive!
What fun plans do you have this weekend?
