The Backyard

The gorgeous weather draws us out of our cave. We wile away the hours in our backyard...


...sunning...

... playing...

colored chalk drawing
(This photo shows only a fraction of the graffiti explosion on our back patio.)

...working...

Photobucket
(Lauren and John dump six hundred pounds of salt into the pool.)

...working and playing?!

Summer Reading
(Kaya is all the rage with the younger set.)

Love these pictures! I feel like your kids have grown up so much just in the 2 years since I started reading your blog! (Just realized tonight that it's been two years since I started my blog and started following yours and some others ... hard to believe!)

Those are such beautiful pictures ~ LOVE the one of the kids reading on the swing!! But I think my favourite is the one of Lauren and John working so well together. There's just something about it...

Say more about Faith's b-day present, please?

I especially love the door and windows on the tree. I've seen them advertised somewhere and thought at the time that Gracie would love them. Where did you purchase them?

You know there must be a house full of allergies when you have a cat named Allegra! LOL!

Love the pictures, Kate!

Looks like everyone was having fun! It's too hot to spend much time in our backyard right now, unfortunately.
