This weekend flew by - I am so glad we had an extra day off to enjoy. Scott and I spend half of Saturday looking for some things we needed outside - storage for yard tools and a shelf for inside our shed and some kind of storage box for small outside toys (jump ropes, balls, sidewalk chalk, etc.). It was a very successful shopping trip and our goal now is to get our shed to the point that we can easily access the kids' bikes and scooters. I always feel so guilty that we never play with those things, but it is only because I can't physically drag it all out of the shed. Hopefully we are on the way to changing that!
Scott did lots of planting this weekend - through a work connection he was able to get us 20 jasmine plants and a tabebuya tree. I caught up on folding literally a week's worth of laundry that has just been piling up. And we ended the weekend with a fun gathering here to celebrate Memorial Day. It was kind of a last-minute idea but we decided to do hot wings (shout out to Grandaddy for cooking them for us) and everyone brought sides and drinks. We set up the slip n slide, baby pool and sprinkler and all the kids had a blast going back and forth between the water toys and the trampoline. We were outside literally all day yesterday - so much fun! I can't wait for school to be out!
Along the fenceline in the background of this picture is the huge row of jasmine plants that Scott planted (with Austin's help).
