We got a big project completed the day before leaving for the beach, one we have been talking about for at least a year. Dan built a perimeter around our playset with landscaping timbers and then filled the space in with an enormous amount of mulch. Not only will our girls not get mud all over their shoes from the dirt that used to be under the swings, but this new set up looks so much better and is easier for Dan to mow around! It was a LOT of work, work that I did absolutely none of. :o) Dan worked his butt off in the hottest weather we have had all year and I think all that hard work really shows......it looks great!
The last thing that I am going to blather on about is our berries. I am so incredibly happy that we planted berry bushes last year! They are so big and are producing the sweetest, tastiest berries I have ever had. We go out about every other day and fill up a small bucket full of berries, and that is not including the vast amount that ends up in Charlotte's mouth! The girls love picking them and I love doing it with them. I finally picked enough and got organized enough to make a pie. It was my first pie making experience as an adult, the last time was when I was a little girl and I made an apple pie with my grandma. It was a learning experience for sure, and I think it turned out delicious.....I've made another one since then! lol I can't wait until our blueberries are ripe and I keep telling Dan that we should plant more berry bushes around our property, I don't think we could have too many!
