We're still busy cleaning and trying to get ready for the big party next week. In case you forgot or don't know, we're throwing an "80th" surprise birthday party here at my hone, for my Papa ;0) This past fall/winter we really let the yard "go" and the patio was more of a storage place. We've been spending lots of time on both. Cleaning, landscaping, refreshing and getting it as prepared as we can for next Saturday. Yesterday, after lots of cleaning, weeding and watering we decided to take a little break and cool off. While my hubby and I sat and enjoyed some cool drinks, my youngest fellow enjoyed running in the sprinkler. It was over 90 degrees yesterday! He had a great time as you can tell by his laughing as he got sprayed with the sprinkler. Sorry for the quality. I took this with my iPhone.
P.S. He is standing in front of the area we had leveled and patched in. Can you believe how fast the grass has grown in and how green it's getting? Just for the record. Normally I don't water this often and we conserve, however when you do landscaping and lawnscaping, you have to water so it will "grab" and survive. After the party we will go back to our regular schedule of watering two days a week, 15 mins on each side. I also want to say I know I've been MIA but after the party, things should get back to normal. I miss you all!
