In Bloom

All of this wonderful summer-y, rainy weather here in South Texas has really brought our yard to life recently. My poor hubby is back to mowing once a week, bless his poor heart.

Griffin got his first "tractor" ride not long ago. He was thrilled! :)


My sweet father-in-law came by to help us out with our lawn before Graham's birthday party and Griffin got his first ride! He loved it! He rode around with his Opi for about 10 minutes in hog heaven. :)

I'm really excited because all the flowering bushes and plants have really started to come alive this week! I really wish I had more time to spend outside tending more of it. It really would be lush and beautiful with more tlc (and less dog and boys tearing it up :).

He is just a litte taste of what we have right now!












If Bobby and I can manage to get our act together and really get our yard (oh how I wish I could call it a garden) looking nice I'll show it all to you! 

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Girl those plants and flowers are just gorgeous! I'd love to see it all! I'm afraid I have a bit of a black thumb when it comes to shrubs and plants, you'll have to give me some advice!

ALL my kids have loved riding the tractor with daddy--just like that, riding on the leg of him with his arm around them so they won't fall off. The 2 youngest still do it. Sometimes my husband takes them for rides just for fun even if the grass does not need to be cut.
