We spent a good long time outside today. We had to move the mulch mountain that was delivered this morning. I'm so thankful one of Chris' co-workers brought his family over to help. Luke had a friend over and a neighbor boy came to join the fun. With all that help we were done in 2 hours.
The mulch pile had a stowaway - a big fat toad. The kids played with it all afternoon. They made it a house in this bucket and gave it everything they thought it needed - including a paper bug, a bottle cap full of water, and grass.
Luke named it "Doesn't Bounce A Lot", because, well, it didn't bounce a lot. Later it got a little jumpy, so Luke decided to let it out in the garden.
So, mission accomplished on the landscaping job. Now, if I only could brew up some energy to go cook dinner.
