Last year it snowed early so I didn't get a chance to cut back any of the trees and bushes in our yard.... and this summer I was just too pregnant to do it. We had a very wet spring (for this area) and so our yard was out of control. I spent two days, when Matthew would let me (he hung out by me in his car seat), cutting back our yard. And boy am I sore! A friend is going to let us use his truck this weekend to take all of it to a compost yard.
Alex didn't have to work yesterday and so when I came in from doing yard work, I found him sitting on the couch with Matthew asleep beside him.... He seemed to like it, whenever we lifted up the hood he would fuss and cry.
