Sunshiny Day

Today was one of those days where we reveled in sunshine & just enjoyed hanging out in the backyard.

At a garage sale this morning I found a little table, perfect to put back in our woods.  Dirty...yes...but nothing keeps the kids busier than a bucket of water.  Hey for 4 bucks we they will be happy to wash it!


Okay, so maybe only Annie & Rocco are happy to wash it...as for me...I am just kicking back & enjoying a good book.


& as for Bo...well he is on snack break of course!

But, he was sweet enough to pick me a flower or two :)
So it's a dandelion...but you girls all know...when our boys pick us dandelions...we sport them proudly!
And after 45 minutes of washing the table...

Annie declared, "I wish I had a servant."

Don't we all honey...don't we all :)

Ok, even more evidence that Annie and my Miss M must be related somehow...she says that ALL of the time!

Another gorgeous picture of you too Libbie! You look very relaxed indeed!

Best wishes to you all for a beautiful and sunshiny weekend,
Natasha.

Hi Libbie. Thanks for coming by and visiting my blog. I'm so glad you decide to follow me and I'll be here following you too. I'm looking forward to getting to know each other. I guess you already know how much I think of your sweet sister.

It looks like you and the kids are having beautiful weather there! Have a fun and blessed weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)

LOL....servant. I just had to share that with hubbie and he laughed too. You know, keep that pic of the most yellow flower in your hair. That's a memory one. Say, that sounds like a good book. Dandelions in my hair.

You all are just too darling...love love these pictures and post. You know Libbie you always make me smile when I come by here. What a treat to visit here.
I can not tell you and Kate how much I wanted off to go see her play in Dallas. Killed me when my Sgt would not approve my days off. But we are short handed but still....
Don't be surprised if I show up at one of the home games...hahaha
Would love it.
Hope you guys enjoy your new table and summer which is getting here pretty fast.
Looking forward to your next post..already
