Yard Work, Strawberries and Sea Shells

I guess having work done on the yard motivated us. We spent the better part of Sunday clearing out ALL the plants around the pool. Something we've talked about doing, just hadn't done. It felt good. Now it's naked until we figure out what we want in there. It has to be something low maintenance because it's not easy to climb up by the waterfall to get to it. Plus, we really need some plants that won't shed into the pool. Nathan had a blast helping. At one point I hear a splash and an "Uh-oh". I look over and he had accidentally dropped a huge rock from the waterfall into the pool. That will have to wait until summer, because the water is way to cold to even think of going in after it.

Kids and I made chocolate covered strawberries yesterday. Nathan won't even try a strawberry and I thought this might change his mind. No such luck. He just sucked all the chocolate off. Reese on the other hand couldn't get enough. He would devour the entire strawberry, stem and all, before I could get it from him.

Just had to share something else Nathan said.....(they are too sweet not to document). He asked to see a wedding picture of Jake and I that was up on a shelf. The same photo I posted for our anniversary, taken at the beach. He studies the picture, says how beautiful it is and then says, "I wish you had thought to bring me home a shell". Made me want to cry it was so sweet.
