Backyard progress

On Saturday, the grass was put in the back yard! I have to say that it changes the feeling completely! My patio stays so much cleaner now, and I can't wait to do the finishing touches with the landscape and lighting.

Juan came to help lay the grass, and Bryanna instantly became friends with him. (She is a magnet for people...and people are attracted to her as well...she has an amazing gift of relating to people and she is only THREE!)

Bryanna asks me what his name is, and I told her "Juan".
She said, "One?"
Me: "No, Juan!"
Bryanna: "Oh. I like his name!" (Still thinking his name is the number one!)

It was pretty funny the rest of the day, her calling him One...I couldn't help but snap the pictures of her talking his ear off!

Now on to planting trees and shrubs!

So so cute. That is a fun story. It is true those two do sound a lot a like. It is crazy that you can tell a few of your children's talents when they are so young. I bet it feels great to get some grass in, and it probably makes it so it isn't so hot too.

Now you can send them outside without the dirt sticking.
So I bought Breaking Dawn and read only a couple pages when the book completely disappeared. I've searched the whole house. Thwarted!
