Or in our case the Mulberry tree.
Oh how I love this tree! I was so happy it survived when my parents built their house…isn’t it so pretty!?! There’s always a lot of activity under/around/near this tree. It’s great for climbing too! I can just hear the kids reminiscing about their memories of this tree 50 years from now.
Since the weather has been warmer lately, we’ve been spending a lot of time outside. Last week, I took the kids on a “nature” walk. Sure…it was just around the compound, but hey, there is a lot to be seen here!
And oh…if you could see the top half of this picture…I'm bummed I didn’t capture it. Little priss was SO not in to the froggy touching her! (By the way, are those some legs of a little girly girl that LOVES to play outside OR WHAT?!?)
And then last weekend was so warm, we got out their swimsuits and their new water toys that they got for their birthday. One loved it (Sloan), One liked it(Madden), and the other two wanted nothing to do with the water (Rocco & Jagger.)
But don’t worry, he enjoyed sitting on the sidelines watching the fun…
I can’t say enough how much I love that the kids get to grow up right next door to some of their big cousins. And it amazes me how much THEY (the big kids – ages 7-10) seem to love it just as much. They really are great with the kids and often times are cheap entertainment! Ha!

They are getting smarter about some things though. Like for instance, you want to eat a snack, you better hide it under a blanket or eat behind a tree, but one thing is for sure, you NEVER bring it out in the open!
Oh and the new toy on the compound…
Happy April everyone!
P.S. We made it through our second RSV season! Thank you Lord!
